05:33:53 <ynpvisitor18> Hi Grand
06:03:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning
06:12:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> I see JSJ is in te park, now we get a lot of unusual reports
06:12:29 <LindaG> Morning
06:12:48 <LindaG> early mug
06:13:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning Linda. looks like a nice chilly morning at OF, 43?
06:14:08 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, morning, I could do for that temp right now
06:15:04 <LindaG> I'm always amazed at how low temp in summer is here
06:23:14 <LindaGt> 3c
06:26:29 <ynpvisitor43> stream is very choppy this morning, hard to catch mug
06:27:33 <LindaGt> Lake looks lovely
06:28:00 <LindaGt> Swallows most likely they are gathering here also
06:33:29 <JarnoO> nice and early OF
06:33:31 <JarnoO> morning all
06:37:42 <ynpvisitor43> are you fellows still experimenting with OF ??
06:38:28 <JarnoO> yes. Still gathering data
06:38:51 <JarnoO> we've got just over 400 usable data points. Target is at least 1500
06:39:03 <JarnoO> LS ie
06:39:45 <ynpvisitor43> ok, I would point differently if you were not, good to now
06:40:32 <ynpvisitor43> not seen that in a while
06:42:32 <ynpvisitor43> good to know***
06:45:27 <LindaGt> JarnoO, hi
06:45:37 <JarnoO> morning Linda, Terry
06:46:19 <LindaGt> 3c
06:46:58 <ynpvisitor43> nice 2cs
06:47:05 <ynpvisitor43> 3c
06:47:11 <JarnoO> Dragon splashdown in around 6 hours
06:48:07 <JarnoO> they're now answering questions
06:48:55 <ynpvisitor43> looking for a flower
06:54:04 <LindaGt> Going to bloom soon πŸ™‚
06:54:21 <ynpvisitor43> :)
06:55:14 <ynpvisitor42> Artemisia
06:55:16 <ynpvisitor42> ?
06:55:34 <JarnoO> looks more like Grotto
06:55:43 <ynpvisitor42> thx
06:56:03 <JarnoO> I'd expect Arty somewhere nearly above Oblong's spot
06:57:01 <LindaGt> Another butterfly this morning and another boy
07:00:14 <ynpvisitor43> daisy
07:03:19 <ynpvisitor43> LindaGt, are you chasing boys now
07:03:40 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor43, 😯
07:04:20 <LindaGt> Lol
07:13:03 <JarnoO> hm. HK suspects an eruption somewhere near Snake Eyes and "SG-#8" based on fresh gravel washed on the shelf below the Sawmill runoff channel: http://geysers.org/notes/2020/08/observations_for_2020_august_0.html
07:13:11 <JarnoO> also some nice pictures
07:18:02 <LindaGt> Hk has his own app that he sells?
07:18:44 <JarnoO> he does
07:19:01 <LindaGt> Interesting
07:30:49 <LindaGt> OF looks cool on static, no wind
07:50:50 <JarnoO> LS is done it seems
07:53:26 <ynpvisitor43> LynnS is having a good time at Three Sisters
07:53:43 <JarnoO> indeed. Even MYR-1 decided to come out :)
08:05:27 <JarnoO> am thinking Three Sisters is currently in a more active phase. 0741 ie 3C ie, Mugwump 0748 and then 3C again 0750 followed by Mugwump 11 minutes later
08:07:12 <ynpvisitor42> OF
08:09:18 <JarnoO> so close to short
08:09:53 <ynpvisitor4> No still water
08:12:25 <Forestbewithyou> Good Morning everyone

08:25:13 <JarnoO> thanks Joe
08:36:38 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
08:36:57 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Kevin
08:37:05 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hi
08:37:42 <LindaGt> Forestbewithyou, hi
08:37:46 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, hi
08:39:47 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hummingbird was back yesterday Linda.
08:41:33 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
08:42:03 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, nice, what's in bloom now?
08:42:49 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Nothing really much. Most of the flowers are toast.
08:43:09 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, so it was searching πŸ™‚
08:43:50 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, do they leave in winter or stay?
08:44:00 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> There are some desert plants around but none in my yard. They always seem to find something.
08:44:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They usually stay in Winter.
08:44:50 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, interesting, they must have a source. I'll have to read up on them.
08:46:07 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I know Lantana is usually blooming and mexican bird of paradise.
08:46:22 <LindaGt> Hummingbirds here feed bugs to young, so I think maybe they are doing both
08:46:55 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> There are a few bugs around.
08:47:36 <LindaGt> I have lantana here too, plant for butterflies and hummingbirds
08:47:57 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Did I mention UP put a train on the ground in Arizona?
08:48:36 <LindaGt> UP?
08:48:58 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Union Pacific (aka Uncle Pete)
08:49:26 <LindaGt> πŸ™‚ that's lost in me. They didnt have one?
08:49:34 <LindaGt> *on
08:49:56 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> The yellow engines you see on the Loop are UP.
08:50:11 <LindaGt> πŸ‘
08:50:57 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, what's special about arizona?
08:51:15 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Derailed a train in Tempe AZ in a worst case scenario. It was on a steel bridge, it was over a lake and it involved fire and hazmat. Has their whole south line closed.
08:52:04 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, oh dear
08:52:46 <LindaGt> Looks like OT and bulger ie
08:52:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Not sure the status this morning but I have seen a few UP trains going through Flagstaff.
08:54:13 <LindaGt> It's a job for benji πŸ˜‰
08:55:21 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It would be a long Benji flight!
08:55:34 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, for sure
08:58:44 <ynpvisitor43> a Flower will grow left 1/4 up middle
09:00:06 <LindaGt> πŸ€”
09:01:30 <ynpvisitor43> now left 1/3
09:01:50 <LindaGt> Lol
09:03:28 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor43, https://youtu.be/YZ6CX_k8fF8
09:04:32 <ynpvisitor43> nice
09:04:58 <LindaGt> πŸ™‚
09:06:05 <ynpvisitor43> It bloomed
09:06:34 <ynpvisitor42> daisy
09:06:57 <LindaGt> 🌼
09:15:09 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Here is info on the derailment Linda: https://www.fox10phoenix.com/video/835068
09:17:41 <ynpvisitor43> fox? isn't that fake news?? ")
09:19:13 <ynpvisitor43> HK is at Mugwump
09:22:59 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, so did bridge collapse cause derailment, or vice versa
09:23:18 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor43, wo der if he adjusted his clock
09:23:33 <LindaGt> *wonder
09:24:09 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Not sure yet Linda but that is pretty ugly.
09:24:59 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, interesting that they didnt want to say what was in those tankers,
09:26:18 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They sure were in a bad spot.
09:29:34 <LindaGt> LindaGt, Well time to build a new bridge
09:29:44 <LindaGt> For kevin
09:30:45 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> 100 years old. Those things are a bunch of flat steel riveted together.
09:35:47 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, stronger than what they make now?
09:36:55 <LindaGt> Love when OF is backlit
09:37:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> No. The newer ones are much better but don't look as cool. I will get some closeup shots of an older one next time I go to Rainbow Canyon.
09:37:36 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, πŸ™‚
09:38:11 <Mike J> They announced the chemical was cyclohexanone (like I know that is.) Two workers got exposed yesterday trying to offload it. Also, they set off charges this morning to demolish one small section where the cars were stuck.
09:39:46 <LindaGt> Cyclohexanone is an excellent solvent for DDT and organic phosphorous pesticides and insecticides.
09:40:04 <LindaGt> From wiki
09:40:39 <JarnoO> Castle ie
09:49:10 <ynpvisitor43> Castle looks minor
09:49:40 <JarnoO> next Castle @ 1439Β±1h based on 5m minor in 0939 in-basin note
09:49:46 <JarnoO> in-basin entry*
09:59:01 <JarnoO> S rim boils
10:00:30 <JarnoO> more rim boils
10:00:55 <JarnoO> can the cam be zoomed in on Giantess?
10:01:07 <JarnoO> looked like fairly good south rim boils
10:16:31 <JarnoO> I think Giantess was very close @ 0959:42. Pretty much the eastern half of the boil was boiling vigoursly to 2 feet, perhaps optimistic 3
10:16:40 <JarnoO> of the pool*
10:16:51 <JarnoO> and now I can't spell
10:17:13 <Forestbewithyou> close to what?
10:17:17 <Forestbewithyou> Erupting?
10:17:40 <JarnoO> well, what else should Giantess be doing?
10:17:44 <JarnoO> :)
10:17:45 <Forestbewithyou> I dunno
10:17:53 <Forestbewithyou> I thought it required bigger boiling than that
10:19:21 <JarnoO> you'd definitely want a big ol' boil, that's for sure :)
10:20:01 <Forestbewithyou> well of course :)
10:21:13 <Michael> I think we could use someone wasting a morning at Giantess fact-checking how impressive its boiling periods are.
10:22:05 <Forestbewithyou> Its not wasting a morning. Its called SCIENCE and Note taking
10:23:30 <JarnoO> KevinS saw a few low north rim boils while he was at Aurum.
10:24:13 <ynpvisitor59> Yes I did
10:25:26 <ynpvisitor87> when did Mugwump get Major and Minor classifications?
10:25:41 <ynpvisitor59> I was also told by someone smarter than me that we needed 6-8 foot boils.
10:26:40 <JarnoO> oh, so it's still quite a ways away
10:26:43 <Michael> I agree that it would be a valuable service (since I think we're overestimating on camera). Hard to convince someone in the Park to miss Grand just to watch Giantess sit there.
10:28:12 <ynpvisitor59> She said vault also needs to be in overflow with some boils too.
10:28:35 <Michael> The popular wisdom used to be to see how frequently boiling occurred. Spilling water over the rim 10-20 times an hour was thought to be good.
10:29:06 <ynpvisitor59> And infant needs to be dirty and churning which it was when I was in the park.
10:29:12 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Dragon splashdown @ 1248 MDT
10:30:13 <JarnoO> this is a still frame of the boils @ 0959:47: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15fT80d610KlsRna0SVTddi0yx8pCNhLi/view?usp=sharing
10:31:06 <ynpvisitor87> I saw a gorgeous blue boil from clear over at Crested while Kevin was there
10:32:11 <ynpvisitor87> who knows what qualifies a Major for Mugwump?
10:33:02 <JarnoO> I reckon HK will define that in his post tomorrow
10:43:13 <Michael> It's too bad the videography here isn't better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WJqrP7pt94
10:44:24 <Michael> The 3-foot boil at 3:11 was unlike anything else I witnessed during my 10-year run as a geyser gazer.
10:47:47 <ynpvisitor65> Michael, very cool
10:50:35 <ynpvisitor42> real cool, Michael
10:53:11 <Michael> There were lots of people there because Clark Murray mentioned earlier in the morning that the regular boiling spells seemed awfully frequent.
10:54:29 <Michael> We laughed at the absurdity of watching Giantess but decided Grand could wait for another day...
10:58:15 <ynpvisitor27> And Grand was only 3x a day then. Occasionally only 2
10:58:56 <ynpvisitor42> amazing
10:59:09 <ynpvisitor42> and a good choice :-)
11:01:39 <Michael> The thought of waiting for Steamboat was even more ridiculous... :)
11:02:09 <ynpvisitor27> unthinkable
11:12:26 <Betty> morning all
11:12:59 <JarnoO> evening Betty
11:13:03 <Michael> Hi Betty.
11:13:23 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> hi
11:13:25 <Betty> evening JarnoO, hi Michael
11:13:32 <Betty> hi Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡
11:13:58 <Michael> Nice, a Turban report from the field.
11:14:40 <Betty> OF
11:28:08 <JarnoO> Grotto at 4h33m observed ie
11:29:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> ot
11:29:34 <JarnoO> Turban 1126
11:29:45 <Betty> hi Graham
11:29:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> D1
11:29:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello, back from my walk
11:30:04 <Betty> cool video, btw, Michael
11:31:21 <JarnoO> north rim boil
11:31:27 <JarnoO> short
11:31:39 <Michael> David Schwarz has a pretty extensive archive of unusual footage. And totally ordinary stuff like Plume...
11:32:18 <JarnoO> he does, yes. Occasionally I look through the archive. I especially found the footage of PMG-2 fun to watch
11:32:27 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> And Splendid
11:35:44 <Michael> I almost forgot Tilt/Tilt's Baby. The sound effects were something else.
11:37:05 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I miss those
11:38:49 <JarnoO> north rim boils
11:41:18 <JarnoO> it does seem slightly more active than I've seen so far. One day... one day...
11:41:48 <JarnoO> Bulger ie
11:44:15 <Michael> I would love to see how fast people can run over from Grand.
11:45:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> I have huffed and puffed my way over from Churn
11:46:15 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I was at BH once
11:46:31 <Betty> Grand
11:46:42 <Forestbewithyou> yay
11:46:49 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
11:46:55 <JarnoO> Grand
11:46:57 <Betty> hi Forest
11:47:18 <Michael> Nice start.
11:47:50 <Michael> Welcome back, Forest. Grand says hello.
11:48:07 <Forestbewithyou> thank you and I guess it does
11:55:05 <JarnoO> just checked the overnight captures. The 1912ie Grotto of yesterday is actually a marathon :P
11:55:25 <JarnoO> so 0654 ie today is still 1912ie yesterday :D
11:56:01 <Michael> Certain geysers don't know when to quit. :)
11:56:08 <JarnoO> haha
11:56:17 <Forestbewithyou> Hi KevinS
11:56:32 <KevinS> Hi to all
11:56:49 <Michael> JarnoO, have you kept track of how long Grotto is quiet after a marathon?
11:56:59 <Betty> hi KevinS
11:57:41 <JarnoO> not really. Cam panning everywhere and anywhere makes it quite difficult for Grotto. Not to say it should be on Grotto 24/7, far from that.
11:58:38 <Michael> Yeah, it's hard to have eyes everywhere.
12:00:06 <Michael> The first eruption after used to be the best chance for a big Grotto Fountain. Would be nice to predict it if we could.
12:00:29 <JarnoO> luckily I am able to catch glimpses of it about once per 15 minutes lately, sometimes more or less. So at least the duration will be somewhat accurate
12:00:46 <JarnoO> (as far as accuracy goes)
12:01:16 <JarnoO> D2/G1Q | 10m54s
12:03:31 <Michael> If only Giant was active. Then we'd have a lot more eyes on it.
12:04:44 <Michael> I've got to deal with yard work while it's nice out. Good luck with Beehive and the big pool uphill from it.
12:05:03 <JarnoO> cya Michael
12:07:41 <JarnoO> I usually aim at getting a Grotto still ie time once every hour, preferably more frequent. That usually happens while the cam is just panning away, no need to do a Grotto pan purposefully in the slightest :)
12:15:58 <JarnoO> Aurum

12:16:00 <JarnoO> .
12:16:00 <JarnoO> .
12:16:31 <ynpvisitor66> Why can't I ever put a time in?
12:16:32 <Betty> cool
12:31:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> all you need to do is press some buttons 66
12:45:11 <JarnoO> Dragon two drogues out
12:45:52 <JarnoO> four main parachutes out
12:48:38 <JarnoO> splashdown
12:48:59 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Nice landing
12:48:59 <JarnoO> preplay delay
12:50:12 <JarnoO> nor not
12:52:37 <JarnoO> and a short
12:55:20 <JarnoO> 1249:57 actually. 2m25s
12:57:25 <JarnoO> Daisy
13:04:07 <JarnoO> that capsule doesn't really look so white anymore
13:04:27 <JarnoO> needs a good scrub
13:12:54 <KorbenC> that was a nice day of fishing
13:13:09 <JarnoO> afternoon Korben
13:13:48 <KorbenC> I see Demo-2 made it home safely
13:13:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Here comes the tow truck
13:14:47 <JarnoO> 40/60 in Atlantic. TS Isaias 55kt
13:17:34 <JarnoO> lifting
13:17:40 <JarnoO> out of water
13:18:37 <JarnoO> and on board
13:20:45 <JarnoO> Grotto still ie
13:27:58 <KorbenC> I see Giantess was a bit optimistic thism orning
13:28:39 <JarnoO> it was
13:28:53 <JarnoO> not so much now because winds increased
13:29:23 <JarnoO> though I do occasionally see a few north rim boils along with the occasional southeastern rim ones
13:29:56 <KorbenC> would you call that a good push/attempt to not be a puddle?
13:30:14 <JarnoO> it needs to do a bit more than that
13:31:01 <JarnoO> at least I'll be holding back proposing to rename Giantess to Giantess Spring :D
13:31:34 <KorbenC> :p
13:32:29 <KorbenC> definitely doing more than it was, say 2 months ago :)
13:41:35 <ynpvisitor116> https://youtu.be/wqqMxhNgR44Aurum replay, watch the people after about 20 seconds "Gawd, we have to watch this thing for a minute and a half!! Ain't gona do it!!

15:22:18 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
15:22:20 <LindaGt> Greetings
15:22:27 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
15:22:29 <LindaGt> KorbenC, hi
15:22:40 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Find any birda?
15:24:09 <LindaGt> Lots of shorebirds. Dowitchers, avocets, sandpipers, plovers and ospreys
15:24:28 <LindaGt> Egrets and gulls
15:24:33 <LindaGt> Herons
15:24:44 <Forestbewithyou> awesome
15:24:45 <LindaGt> πŸ™‚
15:24:53 <KorbenC> LindaGt, nice
15:25:25 <LindaGt> I was looking for a marbled godwit but no
15:25:48 <LindaGt> And skimmer and glossy ibis
15:26:01 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> When it rains there are puddles in dry lake. Shrimp eggs hatch and then these small birds with long legs show up and eat the shrimp. Fun to watch.
15:26:19 <JarnoO> you can't have them all unfortunately, Linda :)
15:26:27 <LindaGt> Maybe sandpipers
15:26:42 <LindaGt> JarnoO, πŸ™‚
15:27:20 <LindaGt> Shorebirds go north early so now they are returning to their wintering grounds
15:28:37 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Looked at the pictures and I think the ones we see are darker all over. Been a while since I have seen them.
15:30:08 <LindaGt> Maybe dowitchers they are considerably bigger and darker, they probe mud with long bills
15:32:05 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> If it rains I will have to check it out again.
15:35:00 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, there are many different kinds of sandpipers also, their behavior may help. Yellow legs run around stirring things up, dowitchers probenthe mud, stuff like that
15:36:01 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> There were dark grey to black with VERY long legs but not much bigger than a sparrow.
15:37:03 <LindaGt> Hmmm I'll gave to look in the book
15:38:51 <LindaGt> *have
15:39:41 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, see in summer or winter
15:40:08 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Springtime.
15:41:20 <LindaGt> Breeding and non- breeding plumage is different that's why I asked
15:41:54 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> yep. BTW I figured out who my man chicken is.
15:42:23 <KorbenC> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, who is it? The Nacho Kid :P
15:42:48 <LindaGt> Uhoh is it who you thought it was?
15:43:06 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It is the one I suspected. He made the mistake of crowing when I was in the coop.
15:43:22 <KorbenC> can you send me some of the Sunday crockpot?
15:43:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Beautiful bird with black feathers that have an iridescent greenish color to them.
15:45:25 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, did he live to tell about it?
15:45:58 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> So far but he is looking like he is going to get lead poisoning soon.
15:46:02 <KorbenC> OF delay 1543 I think
15:46:49 <LindaGt> Set him free, let him make a run for it. Lol
15:47:02 <KorbenC> LindaGt, hahaha
15:47:30 <KorbenC> you can make a lottery though "how far can Mr. Cluck run without a head?"
15:47:34 <KorbenC> OF tryin
15:47:36 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have a neighbor with chickens. I was thinking about tossing him over the fence.
15:47:40 <KorbenC> OF
15:48:27 <LindaGt> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, πŸ˜„
15:49:37 <JarnoO> and a short
15:49:38 <KorbenC> sgort
15:49:43 <KorbenC> short
15:51:32 <JarnoO> 1m44s
15:51:44 <JarnoO> OT ie, Grotto still ie
16:03:08 <KorbenC> 12h 11m since last observed Lion
16:26:15 <JarnoO> Lion looks happy
16:26:45 <JarnoO> Daisy in perhaps 10 minutes or so
16:32:48 <KorbenC> OF coming up in a few minutes too
16:33:24 <JarnoO> 9 minutes left until GT's window opens. Plenty of time left :)
16:37:07 <JarnoO> c'mon Castle... don't be like that...
16:39:12 <KorbenC> Castle loves to Aurum :)
16:39:55 <JarnoO> a Daisyu
16:42:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Here is the picture of my man chicken: https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/50182223696/in/dateposted-public/
16:43:46 <JarnoO> are he and the hens from the same clutch?
16:43:47 <KorbenC> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, looks yummy
16:44:16 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Yes
16:45:08 <JarnoO> so I guess keeping him to have more hens is kinda useless unless you want deformed chickens...
16:45:54 <KorbenC> JarnoO, you can take this one
16:46:03 <JarnoO> sure thing
16:46:54 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> He won't be around that long.
16:48:05 <KorbenC> rainbow
16:48:49 <JarnoO> Isaias 60kt. Had Doppler velocities of 90 to 96kt mid-level for 20 minutes though
16:49:22 <LindaGt> Handsome πŸ™‚
16:49:56 <KorbenC> Linda under TS watch
16:50:27 <JarnoO> it could actually become a hurricane again when the westerly shear switches to southwesterly in 24 to 36h
16:51:12 <KorbenC> I think it is possible, but there is a lowlevel inflow eliminitating rapid development, if its gonna do it, its gonna have to do it soon.
16:51:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> we have a TS Watch, Flash Food watch, Coastal FLood watch, and small craft advisory
16:52:13 <KorbenC> GS, StSwa??
16:52:23 <KorbenC> Storm Surge Watch?
16:53:11 <KorbenC> I would think that the bay could have some surge
16:53:21 <JarnoO> Grotto at >21h
16:54:01 <JarnoO> almost 22h actually
16:54:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes it does, and we are tidal right up into DC
16:54:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> there are places along the bay that flood regularly
16:57:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> we could get high water levels, even after its gone depending how much inland rain there is, potomac can flood too
17:02:46 <LindaGt> We have TS watch and flash flood warning
17:03:34 <KorbenC> LindaGt, not suprised :p
17:03:45 <LindaGt> πŸ˜‹
17:05:24 <KorbenC> LindaGt, take me a video :)
17:05:52 <Forestbewithyou> while your at it I second Korbens request
17:06:11 <LindaGt> I'll try
17:06:29 <KorbenC> or at least a photo of a tree moving :p
17:06:42 <LindaGt> πŸ˜„πŸ‘
17:06:54 <JarnoO> how about a moving picture :)
17:09:30 <LindaGt> KorbenC, I was by the water today and it was very windy
17:10:01 <KorbenC> Linda, there was some bird today I saw out on my boat, is there a way I can find out what kind of bird it was, it was a duck with like a redish (more maroon or burgundy) and super smooth, with like a feather back tail that is brown with some white in it, any idea?
17:10:41 <KorbenC> its a big lake too, so not a scum pond or anything.
17:11:31 <JarnoO> Mug
17:12:12 <LindaGt> Go mug
17:13:00 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Was your water windy too Korben?
17:13:18 <KorbenC> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, calm and placid :)
17:14:31 <LindaGt> KorbenC, what was reddish maroon, the head, whole body. Did it dive or dabble
17:14:36 <KorbenC> Linda, using a key, it says its a Cinnamon Teal, it looks exactly like one, are they rare becuase Ih ave never seen one before.
17:15:21 <KorbenC> LindaGt, whole body and dives.
17:15:22 <LindaGt> KorbenC, I'm not sure if rare by you, theynwould be here. I've only see I yellowstone
17:15:33 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
17:15:55 <LindaGt> Beautiful duck
17:16:12 <LindaGt> You can always narrow it down by we
17:16:33 <LindaGt> Whether it dives or dabbles and then go from there
17:16:45 <KorbenC> I kept following it trying to look at it, but it kept jsut disappering and turning up 50 ft in the other dirrection. :)
17:17:02 <LindaGt> Yup typical diver
17:17:20 <LindaGt> Amazing how far they can go underwater
17:18:00 <LindaGt> KorbenC, but I just looked up cinammon real and it's a dabbler
17:18:28 <LindaGt> Which means it sticksmits but in the air and eats off bottom
17:18:35 <KorbenC> then what is it?
17:18:42 <LindaGt> *-sticks its butt
17:18:56 <LindaGt> I'll look in book
17:19:25 <KorbenC> well, it definitly went underwater
17:19:41 <KorbenC> and I definitely cant spell :)
17:22:26 <LindaGt> KorbenC, any white on face?
17:22:42 <KorbenC> none
17:23:10 <KorbenC> head was totally maroon
17:29:38 <LindaGt> KorbenC, canvas backs and redheads have red heads but not whole body
17:30:29 <KorbenC> red continued all the way through the stuff above water, except for the feathers on the back
17:31:03 <KorbenC> do Cinnamon Teals dive? It could be rouge :P
17:31:18 <LindaGt> KorbenC, https://www.ducks.org/hunting/waterfowl-id/Diving
17:32:03 <KorbenC> the red head color is right, but it went all the way, which is odd
17:32:51 <LindaGt> KorbenC, what about female barrows goldeneye
17:33:05 <LindaGt> Dinertime for me
17:33:34 <JarnoO> cya Linda, enjoy
17:33:44 <LindaGt> Thx
17:33:48 <KorbenC> LindaGt, thats it, just a brighter red/brown thing
17:36:35 <JarnoO> Grand
17:48:15 <JarnoO> looks like Grand's done
17:51:26 <JarnoO> G1Q | 10m48s
17:52:44 <LindaGt> KorbenC, they are common out west
17:53:01 <LindaGt> Female mergansers have red heads also
17:53:42 <KorbenC> LindaGt, :thumbsup::) Thanks
17:54:31 <LindaGt> KorbenC, do you remember what color eye it had?
17:55:38 <LindaGt> There is a common goldeneye also
17:56:59 <KorbenC> I didnt get close enough to see its eye
17:57:18 <KorbenC> because everytime I got close it would pop up 50 ft behind me :P
17:57:22 <LindaGt> πŸ‘
18:00:32 <LindaGt> KorbenC, birding isnt easy πŸ™‚
18:01:06 <KorbenC> I had a shot once, got about 5 feet away from it when a fish hit my line :)
18:03:15 <JarnoO> Grotto steaming to 24h observed ie (literally and figuratively). Only 1h09m to go
18:03:41 <KorbenC> :)
18:05:38 <KorbenC> Castle
18:05:50 <KorbenC> looked like it was starting anyways
18:09:48 <KorbenC> doesnt look ie
18:16:26 <KorbenC> OF late ie
18:36:29 <JarnoO> Daisy
18:41:12 <JarnoO> 1836*
18:45:10 <JarnoO> half hour until 24h observed Grotto marathon
18:45:56 <JarnoO> am looking forward to hopefully a good Grotto Fountain once it recovers
18:46:26 <JarnoO> should be visible above the trees if it isn't steamy
18:59:57 <ynpvisitor64> Castle just annoying
19:00:28 <JarnoO> agreed. Should've gone already
19:11:09 <KorbenC> so, Im confused on the note yesterday, "water has really NOT come back" and then "3 SV 4' spritz" isnt that water? :P
19:12:34 <JarnoO> Grotto 24h observed ie
19:13:52 <JarnoO> I think the original note meant to read "not really come back" or something, but "not" was inadvertently omitted
19:14:29 <JarnoO> thus it read that the water had really come back, which I don't think a 4' spritz is quite yet :)
19:15:53 <JarnoO> you could compare that spritz with the spray OF has at the end of some eruptions. Water is there, but not quite at the same time
19:15:57 <KorbenC> lol
19:16:46 <ynpvisitor64> My neighbor says that so far 2020 has been one big colonoscopy prep.
19:16:51 <KorbenC> I am so confused :)
19:18:51 <KorbenC> water in mouth
19:26:37 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy Grotto marathoning the day goodbye
19:26:46 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Jarno
19:26:52 <KorbenC> Bye Jarno
19:27:04 <KorbenC> Maybe Jarno will be the Castle sacrafice
19:27:21 <KorbenC> sacrifice*
19:39:06 <KorbenC> Lion ini
19:39:28 <KorbenC> I am going to head out after this Lion, night all.
19:39:38 <Forestbewithyou> Good Night Korben
19:44:28 <Forestbewithyou> I am probably goign to head out too night all
19:46:59 <ynpvisitor64> Castle & Riverside post-eruptive "by definition."
19:47:28 <ynpvisitor64> OF 1947
19:47:33 <LindaGt> Forestbewithyou, night
19:51:00 <KorbenC> I am staying to grab this OF :)
19:51:43 <KorbenC> Kent, start was 1946, long.
19:52:05 <ynpvisitor64> OK - I will correct
19:52:09 <ynpvisitor64> Again
19:52:13 <KorbenC> :)
19:53:15 <KorbenC> Also, how do you know riverside and castle are post-eruptive? Castle was a minor, so it could very well go anytime, and Riverside should be just coming up.
19:53:34 <ynpvisitor64> If it goes in less than 90" you may be getting a visit.
19:53:38 <ynpvisitor64> :)
19:54:46 <ynpvisitor64> I just consider Castle an annoying. I screwed up on Riverside. Not paying attention to my chart.
19:54:58 <KorbenC> :)
19:55:12 <KorbenC> Castle should be anytime (maybe we could pan over there now??)
19:55:49 <KorbenC> Riverside should be in about an hour
19:56:20 <ynpvisitor64> I will continue to watch
19:56:46 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: Goodnight
19:56:57 <ynpvisitor64> Night
