02:49:04 <ynpvisitor57> Nice to see Oblong
04:52:28 <ynpvisitor96> Joe, this is Kat. Driving home good morning..may be late
05:11:22 <ynpvisitor108> Hi Kat Ill cover
05:11:39 <ynpvisitor108> i'll
05:56:43 <JarnoO> morning all
05:58:41 <ynpvisitor108> watch for things need coffee, brb
05:59:05 <JarnoO> Lion
05:59:08 <ynpvisitor108> lio
05:59:13 <ynpvisitor108> lion
06:00:49 <JarnoO> looks like it (nearly) had a pause
06:12:22 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 0659±5m if series continues. 3m07s combined, #1 1m00s, #2 2m07s
06:12:23 <JarnoO> Mug
06:14:43 <JarnoO> I see there was an Oblong overnight. Good stuff :)
06:18:49 <ynpvisitor108> I saw the plume at 0612 but too steamy to see the splash
06:22:49 <ynpvisitor108> we will lose Daisy to OF I can't cheat in daylight
06:23:15 <JarnoO> no problem
06:25:35 <ynpvisitor108> I would lose my job, a substantial part of my income. :)
06:26:05 <JarnoO> that wouldn't be ideal
06:42:34 <ynpvisitor108> Daisy ie
06:43:18 <ynpvisitor108> or ns
06:44:02 <ynpvisitor108> my lucky day
06:45:14 <JarnoO> :)
06:46:30 <JarnoO> overnight posted. Time to find out how long Grotto continued for
06:56:20 <JarnoO> Joe, could you pan to Grotto please? I hope the steam has cleared up enough to confirm whether it is still ie or not :)
06:57:08 <JarnoO> looks like it's done. Thanks
06:59:55 <JarnoO> HK saw Sawmill at a high water level: http://geysers.org/notes/2020/08/observations_for_2020_august_0_1.html
07:06:08 <JarnoO> if Grotto was done by 0654, that would bring the eruption to a grand total of >34h
07:06:09 <Kat> Good Morning! Thanks Joe!
07:06:15 <JarnoO> 0656*
07:06:33 <ynpvisitor108> yw
07:07:34 <JarnoO> which also means it'll likely erupt overnight, so possibly no Grotto Fountain show in daytime :(
07:11:38 <JarnoO> Lion
07:12:39 <JarnoO> detectable water at Steamboat logger just after noon
07:15:30 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 0731±10m if series contines. 26s, using 20m±10m
07:17:14 <Kat> Thanks
07:20:50 <Kat> OT
07:23:00 <JarnoO> roar
07:23:32 <JarnoO> and nope
07:23:42 <JarnoO> should've started it though
07:28:44 <Kat> LC
07:34:08 <JarnoO> strong wind for a morning
07:35:05 <ynpvisitor4> Just a few cars waiting at West Gate!
07:54:22 <lori lurking Je> good morning all
07:54:25 <Kat> Hi Lori!
07:55:06 <JarnoO> morning Lori
07:55:18 <lori lurking Je> DOes anyone have any Yellowstone books to recommend? Can be fiction or non. We have quite a few already, but always like something new.
07:58:03 <Kat> Have you read Rick McIntyre's new book - Rise of Wolf 8 ?
07:59:53 <Kat> So dark out there!
08:06:43 <lori lurking Je> sorry Kat, went to look at Todd's latest from the kids for Fathers Day. They are by Rick Lamplugh, so we don't have Rick McIntyre.
08:07:36 <Kat> lori lurking Jenna's mom, He has several good books
08:11:10 <Kat> OF
08:15:35 <lori lurking Je> thanks Kit.
08:16:58 <JarnoO> long at 3m50s
08:18:43 <Kat> Hi Korben
08:18:51 <KorbenC> It feels nice to catch up on some sleep after 3 days of getting up before 4AM :)
08:18:57 <KorbenC> Hi Kat, how was the storm?
08:20:16 <Kat> A big fat Nothing Burger! I understand why people become complacent!
08:20:50 <KorbenC> hahaham thats what happens when it just "dies" right before it reaches land :P
08:22:17 <Kat> Preparing, packing up,clearing everything off the deck and then getting everything back in place is exhausting!
08:22:42 <KorbenC> I bet!
08:24:10 <Kat> Came home this morning early!
08:27:07 <Kat> we did have some hefty winds
08:27:30 <lori lurking Je> oops- typo thanks Kat!
08:28:26 <Kat> lori lurking Jenna's mom, :)
08:29:59 <JarnoO> morning Korben. There are two OF captures waiting for you. Current priority is to get the 1996 log done with, since I'm now at November already (a few days ago I was still doing July :))
08:30:53 <KorbenC> I already got them
08:31:59 <KorbenC> with the recent temp logger update, SB tommorow would be my guess
08:33:12 <KorbenC> I see Tara is in the park, and given all the odd entrys, I guess JSJ just got there :P
08:33:35 <JarnoO> first entries were ereyesterday
08:33:40 <JarnoO> of JSJ, that is
08:33:48 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
08:34:21 <KorbenC> maybe Tara can convince Giant and F&M to do something before R gets there
08:34:43 <JarnoO> "ereyesterday" is so much faster to type than "the day before yesterday". It's unfortunate it's regarded as obsolete
08:35:15 <JarnoO> overmorrow is also obsolete unfortunately
08:36:34 <Kat> :lol:
08:37:20 <JarnoO> I wonder if there will be a few more eyes on Giant today, since Grotto finished a >34h marathon just earlier today
08:38:03 <KorbenC> I aslo see Oblong is becoming more active, I guess it erupted early this mornng :)
08:39:21 <JarnoO> I have reason to believe that the Oblong eruption was caused by Grotto's marathon. It also finally had an eruption after some 118 days following a >25h Grotto marathon
08:41:40 <JarnoO> I'm not quite sure what was the cause of Oblong's July 27 eruption, though. Might be related to a change below the surface which did not notably express itself above the surface
08:42:44 <JarnoO> (this is based on that Oblong, during dormancies, only tended to erupt when there were unusual things happening in the Grotto, Giant, Chain Lakes and even Daisy group, per the book)
08:47:29 <JarnoO> Daisy
08:49:08 <Kat> Korben r u sure 0846?
08:49:29 <KorbenC> I saw it at 08:49:05 so I think so
08:49:56 <KorbenC> I also wasnt paying the closest attention, so I jsut calculated it a few seconds of delay
08:50:22 <JarnoO> even with lag compensation I didn't "see" it @ late 0846
08:50:55 <Kat> On control camera - I saw it at 0847 AS WELL
08:51:06 <KorbenC> it looks to be starting at 0846
08:51:38 <KorbenC> I see the steam cloud start at about 08:46:59 :)
08:52:07 <KorbenC> but I may have miscalculated my delay :)
08:52:41 <Kat> Bulger
08:54:33 <JarnoO> I recently did some cross-checking with my start time versus that of in-basin, as well of duration in-basin versus that of the webcam. Apparantly the first thick, rising steam plume corresponds to in-basin start, with the last "slow rising plume" to Daisy's end time. Even then, though, I can only approximate the in-basin time by perhaps 5 or more seconds
08:55:14 <JarnoO> on good days with few steam this is less
08:57:27 <JarnoO> ±3m36s for Daisy
09:01:27 <JarnoO> morning Jimbo. You lost some weight I see
09:02:16 <JarnoO> Mug
09:03:07 <KorbenC> Kat, Bulger was ie when the cam zoomed out at 0851
09:04:00 <Kat> Thanks Korben
09:06:41 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
09:06:49 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin
09:07:19 <JarnoO> OT apparantly still ie
09:07:38 <Kat> Morning Kevin
09:08:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning
09:08:40 <JarnoO> looks like a Giantess boil in SE quadrant
09:09:32 <KorbenC> Hi Eric
09:09:32 <JarnoO> morning Eric
09:09:45 <Eric> Morning all
09:09:49 <JarnoO> and morning kc
09:09:56 <kc (working)> hi
09:10:05 <KorbenC> Hi kc
09:10:23 <Kat> Hi eri, kc
09:10:29 <Kat> Eric*
09:15:01 <Eric> BTW Jarno, https://github.com/ruffle-rs/ruffle/issues/723
09:15:39 <KorbenC> another boil?
09:15:57 <Eric> Hi Kat...hope you endured Isaias OK.
09:16:02 <Eric> LC ie
09:16:38 <Kat> It was a Nothing Burger! Disappointing! :lol:
09:16:39 <LindaG> Morning
09:16:47 <LindaG> Kat, hi
09:16:48 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
09:16:48 <Kat> Hi linda!
09:17:03 <Eric> Be thankful for that!
09:17:05 <LindaG> Kat, all that packing for nothing
09:17:30 <Kat> No kidding - I'm exhausted but happy to be home!
09:17:41 <Eric> :heart::heart::heart:
09:17:52 <JarnoO> thanks Eric. From my understanding it's thus quite a ways away as far as RTMP support goes
09:17:56 <LindaG> Kat, 🙂 better safe than sorry
09:18:08 <Eric> I don't believe it's possible Jarno...security issues
09:18:20 <Kat> We did have high winds - some heavy downpours - but it did not stop the surfers! Crazy
09:18:34 <ynpvisitor253M> Quite often nothing burgers are a good thing.
09:18:44 <Eric> Browser will not let any default technology open arbitrary sockets like is needed for RTMP
09:18:55 <Kat> LindaG, absolutley - so a dry run and now I'm ready for the next one
09:19:12 <Kat> ynpvisitor253M, Amen!
09:19:15 <LindaG> Kat, you gotta get a bugout car and leave it packed 😃
09:19:23 <JarnoO> darn, Eric. Oh well. Hopefully it'll be possible one way or another some day in the future, if not - HLS it is
09:19:46 <Eric> I think HLS is our only real solution for the near future.
09:19:59 <JarnoO> indeed
09:20:40 <JarnoO> Korben, Isaias still TS wind speeds, but continues to have strong bursting followed by weakening. Still expected to become a hurricane once again
09:21:22 <JarnoO> actually set at a possibly generous 60kt
09:21:38 <LindaG> Not sure what it will do here, goingbto go thru NC first, might break it down
09:21:38 <KorbenC> I call that a palpitating storm, should be interesting :)
09:21:54 <KorbenC> Linda, or it might not :P :)
09:21:54 <JarnoO> which I think is a 5kt increase from the last advisory
09:22:06 <LindaG> KorbenC, I know
09:22:12 <Kat> It is increasing
09:22:53 <KorbenC> more steam and runoff is steamy in the past 5 minutes it seems.
09:22:53 <LindaG> Funny when I lived in North Jersey never gave a storm like this a second thought
09:24:26 <KorbenC> is that Giant steam, or is Grotto still ie?
09:24:56 <Kat> when I was n Virginia never thought about them much either!
09:25:22 <JarnoO> Kat, can you zoom in on Grotto for a bit?
09:26:28 <KorbenC> GF steamy
09:26:37 <Eric> Giant is steaming...but so is everything :-P
09:26:48 <Eric> agree Coop
09:26:51 <JarnoO> Korben, I think that's the Chain Lakes
09:27:03 <Eric> too far right Jarno?
09:27:04 <JarnoO> Grotto Fountain is a layer of trees in the front
09:27:27 <Eric> purple pools? :-D
09:27:40 <JarnoO> could be, actually
09:27:58 <JarnoO> looks like passive Grotto steam, not ie
09:27:58 <Eric> seems further back than giant...but it's all so deceptive back there.
09:28:23 <Eric> Like reading tea leaves :-P
09:28:48 <Kat> :)
09:28:56 <Eric> no, that is definitely further back...GF area I think
09:29:07 <LindaG> Seen that before, but dont know what it is
09:29:16 <Eric> spa?
09:29:39 <Eric> F&M? :-D
09:29:56 <JarnoO> don't think it's Spa. It would appear between Giant and Rocket as far as satellite imagery goes
09:30:07 <Eric> ahh
09:30:36 <Kat> I think it's a steamy geyser haha
09:30:47 <JarnoO> Bijou looks like nothing more than a steaming vent now :)
09:30:59 <JarnoO> (that's due to the marathon, not a GHP!)
09:31:27 <KorbenC> I hope we start seeing GHP's soon, been too long. :)
09:33:38 <JarnoO> I think it'll take a while. We'd first need to see some promising Bijou slowdowns and quiet periods first before there's a chance of a GHP as far as I know. Compare it with Splendid. For it to have even a remote chance of an eruption I think we'd first need a few false starts
09:34:02 <JarnoO> and preferably a barometer drop
09:34:18 <KorbenC> well.....
09:35:17 <KorbenC> On one of the days Bijou was on very strong adn then it had a slowdown with a quick increase in Giant water elvels with some water about 1/3 the height of the cone.
09:36:00 <JarnoO> I think that's normal activity. You'd want those slowdowns to last for some time
09:36:19 <JarnoO> (don't take my word for it, I'm a Giant platform noob so to say)
09:36:20 <KorbenC> like a 10 minute slowdown? :)
09:38:53 <KorbenC> I have my notes saying "0913 Bijou strong and sustained. 0914 Slowdown in Bijou and increased water level in angled Giant surging. 0921 slowdown continued, Giant angled surging 1/3 the height of the cone and seems to have a little bit more water coming. 0925 Decrease in Giant surging and increase in Bijou power. 0927 Bijou back to 0914 power, no more water seen in Giant as of 0940."
09:38:54 <ynpvisitor79> Mugwump 0902 replay starts at :07 thru. :27 https://youtu.be/nJqwqI8pVT4
09:40:07 <KorbenC> and then it continues "0950 Water back in Giant walking from cage to Daisy." :)
09:41:01 <JarnoO> you might want to put those notes on GT. Would help others at some point I think
09:41:25 <KorbenC> I would, but I didnt put a date on them :P
09:41:44 <JarnoO> :facedesk:
09:42:15 <KorbenC> I know it was after I saw Steamboat again, but before I left, even though that juset eliminates the 1st day :D
09:43:27 <KorbenC> I think it may have been the 10th but IDK :)
09:50:59 <Kat> OF
09:54:26 <KorbenC> Jarno, I cant grab this one
09:55:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Korben, another great train/weather picture from Colorado: https://www.railpictures.net/photo/742927/
09:55:34 <JarnoO> hm, didn't see that last jet after I did /getvideo coming
09:56:14 <JarnoO> as far as the first 0950 video is considered, it can be removed
09:56:26 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, WOW, I have stood up there, too bad I didnt take the photo :P
09:57:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is a good one just south of me: https://www.railpictures.net/photo/744003/
09:57:13 <Katie> Hi all
09:57:19 <KorbenC> Hi Katie
09:57:20 <JarnoO> morning Katie
09:57:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
09:57:50 <Eric> Hi Katie
09:58:00 <Eric> Welcome to Monday :-D
09:58:03 <Kat> Hi Katie
09:58:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> But it IS the last Monday this week Eric.
09:58:55 <Katie> This Monday has already felt like 3 Mondays.
09:59:02 <Eric> Me sitting at 7k ft up the side of Mt. Hood - https://photos.app.goo.gl/tCKnj3FizxSDHigN9
09:59:26 <KorbenC> Eric, nice
09:59:37 <Kat> Nice one Eric
09:59:37 <JarnoO> did you ask that man to be photographed? :P
09:59:37 <Eric> Say hello to my little friend
09:59:49 <Forestbewithyou> lol
10:00:05 <Kat> LOL
10:00:12 <Forestbewithyou> what is his name?
10:00:16 <Eric> I really thought that chipmunk was going to jump on my shoulder
10:01:30 <Kat> bbl all! Have fun
10:01:37 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Kat
10:01:44 <JarnoO> Forest, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSZ3uniC89c
10:02:44 <KorbenC> https://imgur.com/a/Yx0LdOI My hike this weekend. This upcoming weekend we are probably gonna go do Decalibron again :)
10:03:01 <KorbenC> Democrat- Cameron- Lincoln- Bross. 4 14ers :)
10:03:17 <Forestbewithyou> LMAO Jarno
10:04:02 <KorbenC> JarnoO, lol
10:04:50 <KorbenC> I will say though, the back side of Grizzlys isnt class 2 :)
10:05:19 <Eric> Looks nice Coop
10:05:30 <Eric> That snowbank looked like it was at least 4ft tall!
10:05:44 <KorbenC> hahahahaha, do oyu really think I am that small :p
10:06:02 <KorbenC> SB?
10:06:03 <KorbenC> .
10:06:03 <KorbenC> .
10:06:57 <KorbenC> yes
10:06:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like it
10:07:00 <KorbenC> SB
10:07:40 <JarnoO> 0957 E maj per spectrograms
10:07:43 <Eric> Wow...logged too
10:07:44 <KorbenC> yup
10:08:10 <JarnoO> E wc, Korben? How does that work out?
10:08:26 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
10:08:33 <Eric> haha
10:08:43 <Eric> Yes, E is the appropriate moniker
10:09:25 <KorbenC> JarnoO, hahahaha, oops
10:09:31 <JarnoO> I would think E wc would be more appropiate for webcams, as then you'd have Electronic WebCam (shortcut letters capitalized)
10:09:42 <JarnoO> but let's not go that far :)
10:09:50 <KorbenC> dont worry, I only entered 5 eruptions like that in person too :P
10:10:54 <KorbenC> cycle prediction only 1 hour off, final prediction 11 hours off
10:11:56 <KorbenC> Temp Graph didnt look ready at all :p
10:12:39 <JarnoO> probably went on the first real push
10:12:52 <KorbenC> very likely.
10:16:12 <KorbenC> My predictions for the next one...
10:16:52 <KorbenC> Last 5E Prediction: 08/08/2020 9:47:00. Cycle Prediction: 08/08/2020 16:47:14. Average of 5E/Cycle (Final for now) 8/8/2020 13:17:07.
10:17:16 <Eric> I got a portrait of my friend too :-D https://photos.app.goo.gl/WSrYdtYFgvusfG9PA
10:19:53 <Forestbewithyou> nice picture :)
10:21:07 <KorbenC> I wonder if anyone was there, dont think alot of people were expecting it to go this morning :)
10:22:11 <Eric> I wouldn't have been sitting there!
10:22:28 <Eric> Maybe late this afternoon and evening
10:23:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Going to be some unhappy gazers
10:35:37 <LindaG> Oh steamboat
10:49:04 <LindaG> Daisy
10:54:49 <JarnoO> morninig Dan, Stacey
10:55:49 <Eric> Is that steamboat on YMC?
10:56:47 <StaceyM> Morning, Jarno
10:57:46 <JarnoO> not sure, Eric. Would have to take a look at it in a few hours
10:58:00 <KorbenC> Hi Dan and Stacey
10:58:32 <ynpvisitor14> not possible
10:58:51 <LindaG> Eric, seems so
10:58:57 <Eric> ok....but sure is a weird trace on YMC!
10:59:05 <Eric> at the same time SB is IE
10:59:58 <Eric> Never seen one their before...but something is showing a vibration there.
11:00:12 <Eric> haha...they're their there :-P
11:00:43 <Eric> why can't they all just get along and be the same :-P
11:01:07 <LindaG> B950 doesnt have it and it shouldnt
11:01:13 <DanS (working)> Hello to all. Glad JSJ was able to make it to park this year - lots of good observations from Fountain deck.
11:01:24 <Eric> Yep, that definitely points toward an obvious SB
11:01:33 <JarnoO> can't hurt to take a peek at YMC to confirm or disprove SB's visibilty on YMC, #14?
11:01:46 <Eric> Yes, he is a mad skills observer in the LGB!
11:02:22 <JarnoO> morning fish
11:03:01 <Eric> probably just coincidence I guess
11:03:17 <JarnoO> yeah, that's likely where it'll boil down to
11:03:24 <Eric> I assume 14 was you fish :-P
11:03:27 <Eric> assumed
11:03:32 <KorbenC> Hi Fish
11:04:01 <fishynp> YMC is a short-period seismometer that is ~25 km away from SB. There is no way it is recording SB eruptions. It probably wouldn't see it even if it was closer as it is a short-period instrument.
11:04:17 <fishynp> Just like b950 (which is located right next to YNR) can't see it.
11:04:48 <Eric> Thanks fish...chalk it up to coincidence then
11:05:01 <StaceyM> Would YNM show it?
11:05:02 <JarnoO> what's the difference between short-period and boardband?
11:05:06 <JarnoO> broadband*
11:06:01 <fishynp> short-period only is able to record higher frequency signals. Broadband instruments can record a much broader spectrum of frequencies (including lower frequencies).
11:06:51 <JarnoO> Stacey, YNM shows it. In fact, it was, until a few weeks ago, the seismograph we rely on when no-one's at Norris to log Steamboat
11:07:09 <StaceyM> Thanks
11:07:12 <KorbenC> 3 more photos from my hike which I forgot to grab, https://imgur.com/a/ve79dMD
11:07:57 <JarnoO> and should I see higher frequency signals as those from some hertz up to 45Hz or higher still?
11:08:25 <Forestbewithyou> I can tell your dog really wanted some of that food Korben :)
11:08:36 <KorbenC> lol, yup :)
11:09:51 <Eric> Nice shots...how did you dog like the goats? :-D
11:10:00 <fishynp> Steamboat eruptions (and most geyser eruptions) are dominated by high-frequency signals (20-40 Hz). However, high frequency signals die off very quickly as they travel through the earth away from the source. You can only see these at YNM for the most part and a little bit at YNR.
11:10:56 <KorbenC> Eric, it was her 1st time seeing goats, she tried to run away (shes scared of everything), and then she and the goats decided to be friends, litteraly :)
11:11:07 <Forestbewithyou> aww
11:11:08 <Eric> pics?
11:11:50 <LindaG> fishynp, thanks
11:11:51 <fishynp> There are probably higher frequencies in there as well, but one thing to be aware of, all of our permanent seismometers sample at 100Hz (100 samples/second). Because of this, you can't really trust any signal above the Nyquist Frequency (~45-50 Hz) as there is a chance of aliasing.
11:12:49 <JarnoO> thanks
11:12:53 <KorbenC> Eric, of what, the goats?
11:13:54 <KorbenC> if so, you try to get a picture of your dog 75ft away from you walking with the goats while you are trying to climb down the back side of a mountian (which was not class 2, it was class 3 because we went down the wrong way :p) :P
11:15:01 <KorbenC> while also going "why cant I have 4 legs" :D
11:16:47 <Eric> your dog and the goats being friendly
11:17:36 <KorbenC> I will look again, because I know there is one somwhere of us and the goats 10ft away :)
11:18:06 <JarnoO> over time I have noticed that Steamboat tends to only show up from about 10Hz until that Nyquist frequency on YNR, commonly centering between 20 to 40Hz for the remainder of when it's still visible on the spectrogram, with hardly any dent below 10Hz. What causes that?
11:18:54 <JarnoO> same story on YNM
11:18:57 <KorbenC> https://imgur.com/a/PGNE0i4 the red route is the way we were supposed to go :) The blue route is the class 3 route up Grizzly that we went, and then backcountry scrambed over to the actual route :p
11:21:20 <JarnoO> short
11:24:21 <Eric> grand
11:30:31 <JarnoO> 2nd
11:30:33 <Katie> Came back just in time
11:30:52 <fishynp> JarnoO, when we deployed the temporary seismometers close to Cistern and Steamboat, we see a lot more information (like signals in the 1-5 Hz range) but we don't see those at YNM. They are low amplitude signals that don't travel very far from the source.
11:31:16 <fishynp> That may be why you aren't seeing anything under 10 Hz.
11:31:41 <JarnoO> thanks
11:32:13 <JarnoO> how's that research actually going? Haven't heard of it for a while now
11:32:21 <fishynp> It's a pretty complicated system that we don't fully understand yet. Although we are trying. We have a manuscript in preparation now.
11:32:36 <fishynp> Should be coming out in the next month or so.
11:32:40 <JarnoO> nice
11:32:53 <Eric> Nice! can't wait to read that research fish!
11:32:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Any word on when the OF seismo will be fixed?
11:33:08 <JarnoO> I guess it's more complex than OF's plumbing, fish :D
11:33:11 <fishynp> pretty cool images of Steamboat and Cistern plumbing.............
11:33:43 <fishynp> hopefully YFT will be fixed within the next month.
11:34:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thanks!
11:34:44 <fishynp> We have a big research project starting in Yellowstone in the next couple of weeks where we will deploy ~650 seismometers around the park and have a vibroseis truck drive through them to help us image and characterize the upper magma reservoir better.
11:35:14 <JarnoO> I wonder if there are any signs of perhaps old plumbing from which Cistern used to tap when it was a mudpot
11:35:47 <Eric> wow...what a project!
11:35:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Awesome fish
11:36:20 <fishynp> If it's not currently active (i.e. producing seismic signals) we can't see it.
11:36:21 <JarnoO> looking forward to that, fish. Hopefully the weather will co-operate for that truck
11:36:24 <Forestbewithyou> Thats really awesome
11:36:25 <DanS (working)> fish, very ccol. Wonder what surprises will be uncovered.
11:37:27 <fishynp> We will be running the vibe truck during night time hours so hopefully weather will better cooperate.
11:37:37 <Eric> Good luck driving around the park :-P
11:37:45 <Eric> ahh, night hours make way more sense
11:37:54 <JarnoO> makes sense. Low human activity
11:38:07 <fishynp> exactly....and less traffic.
11:38:12 <JarnoO> though it might be noisier around Norris when Steamboat's due :D
11:38:12 <Eric> and they will be able to move somewhere Jarno :-P
11:43:17 <ynpvisitor60> All the jiggling will kill sb and activate giant.
11:43:49 <JarnoO> not Giantess, #60?
11:43:58 <ynpvisitor60> Maybe even the butterflies will take off.
11:45:22 <ynpvisitor60> Giantess lives at walmart. If you have ever been, you understand.
11:46:01 <ynpvisitor2> been to walmart or giantess?
11:46:47 <ynpvisitor51> you can see plenty of boils at Walmart too!
11:46:50 <JarnoO> we don't have it where I live
11:47:33 <fishynp> SB 100% confirmed with Tantalus creek spike. Not to say it was in any doubt.
11:48:19 <ynpvisitor2> bbev might not recognize a SB eruption? ;)
11:48:21 <JarnoO> indeed. Seismograph signals were quite obvious already
11:48:37 <KorbenC> fishynp, and inbasin posted it :)
11:49:04 <ynpvisitor60> It was on GT, so it has to be true.
11:49:53 <ynpvisitor2> yeah, for sure.... heard about a grotto eruption on GT that only happened on webcam but not in the basin.... how cool that must have been
11:54:14 <ynpvisitor60> In basin people must have all been watching mug.
11:57:56 <ynpvisitor2> haha.... heard in basin recently; "what's with everyone and mugwump???"
11:59:16 <JarnoO> semi-rare geyser I guess. And it gives you reason to see the Myriads without having to say you're staring at dirt :)
12:15:15 <ynpvisitor16> Nice to see the world has a new tallest predictable geyser...GO STEAMBOAT
12:15:34 <KorbenC> Steamboat is not predictable.
12:15:57 <ynpvisitor16> What's your definition young man
12:16:06 <KorbenC> It has patterns which can be used to guess when it might erupt, but we dont know when it will go dormant, and there are too many factors there.
12:16:21 <KorbenC> :)
12:16:38 <Eric> uhhh, we don't know when any of these geyser will go dormant Coop
12:16:49 <Eric> That is NOT a factor in predictions :-P
12:17:09 <ynpvisitor16> Plume used to be a predictable geyser
12:17:11 <JarnoO> That's nice. cb dedicated this Steamboat to TomC
12:17:14 <Eric> Steamboat is TOTALLY predictable, right now :-P
12:17:20 <KorbenC> but IMHO, all we do is make guesses, when something like it has a window that is +/- 1 day (if you are lucky).
12:17:34 <Forestbewithyou> That is really nice
12:17:38 <KorbenC> I count predictable as something too the point where the average visitor can see it, and trust it :)
12:17:45 <KorbenC> Hi Dave
12:17:46 <JarnoO> afternoon Dave
12:17:52 <Dave from B™> Howdy everyone
12:17:53 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Dave
12:18:12 <Eric> Wow...Dave is ALIVE!
12:18:15 <KorbenC> Nice that CB did that for Tom :)
12:18:15 <Eric> Hi Dave
12:18:19 <One-s-one> Hey, the Geyser Times entry for Grand says G1Q, but I thought we definitely saw a 2nd.
12:18:27 <JarnoO> we did too
12:18:42 <Dave from B™> Yep...barely....work is nuts....3 nights camping along the Gallatin coming Wed
12:19:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> So the deer are safe now?
12:19:01 <Eric> Nice!
12:19:08 <KorbenC> is someone going to flag it, becuase I thought I saw a 2nd :)
12:19:19 <Dave from B™> haha. Only daytime driving in the Travato
12:19:58 <Dave from B™> IF SB doesn't find a D, this year will set a record for eruptions
12:20:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> When were you going to try to dee it Dave?
12:20:31 <JarnoO> I commented on that entry. Feel free to flag it, but I think a flag is a bit extreme for an otherwise accurate start time. Not quite sure about the rest of the code, but Q did seem likely
12:21:08 <Dave from B™> Kevin, we were hoping it was inplay Wed morning and we would have made a detour. This trip is for floating and eating by the fire
12:21:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Especially since it is in basin
12:21:51 <CraigC> Dave!
12:21:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good luck with it Dave. Is Becca gone now?
12:21:59 <JarnoO> afternoon Craig
12:22:02 <Dave from B™> CraigC!
12:22:03 <KorbenC> Hi Craig :)
12:22:11 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Craig
12:22:11 <CraigC> hey folks
12:22:19 <Dave from B™> We take Rebecca to Missoula next Wed
12:22:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I guess she will miss it this year.
12:23:36 <Dave from B™> If it is in play Saturday we could try on the way home
12:23:56 <Eric> Ahhh, they are doing in person classes Dave?
12:24:04 <CraigC> what is the prediction for it
12:24:18 <Eric> Hi Craig
12:24:27 <Dave from B™> Hey...a prediction can be plus or minus a day and still be a prediction:)
12:24:30 <CraigC> Eric, nice photot
12:24:33 <CraigC> photos
12:24:53 <Eric> If SB moves back toward average, 8/8 @ 11:09 +- 17h
12:24:57 <KorbenC> Dave, next SB right now +/- 100000000 years
12:25:04 <Dave from B™> Eric, so far they are but it could be a combination of online and in class. She will be doing some work at a local high school in Missoula also
12:25:09 <Eric> So I would say if you are at SB on 8/8 you have a decent shot!
12:25:11 <JarnoO> -_-
12:25:31 <Eric> The high schools are opening too???
12:25:38 <Eric> What a vector nightmare.
12:25:45 <Dave from B™> I'll tell the boss to put more food and alcohol onboard:)
12:25:48 <CraigC> hmmmm.... wasn't in any hurry to go back up to YNP, but if you are going, Dave, then maybe I might
12:26:24 <Eric> :heart::heart::heart:
12:26:30 <Dave from B™> CraigC....nothing definite. I will be camping about 40 miles north of your spot
12:27:16 <Dave from B™> I'm still hoping classes get cancelled
12:27:44 <CraigC> my daughter registered at Weber State and it is all online
12:28:34 <Dave from B™> That is the way it should be
12:33:45 <Dave from B™> Is there a study out there that says you can't get COVID if you drink X amount of alcohol. I could be a test subject:)
12:34:54 <JarnoO> wouldn't surprise me if that one guy suggests it could help preventing you from getting that virus
12:35:16 <Dave from B™> That doesn't count
12:36:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Does Apple Beer count?
12:39:14 <Dave from B™> It does in my book
12:50:20 <Eric> only if it has alcohol Kevin :-D Same stuff used in hand sanitizer. Just add a squirt to each cup and you should be good.
12:52:08 <Dave from B™> haha
12:57:50 <Dave from B™> SB is only 4d2h37m behind last year. It has been gaining over the past month
12:58:11 <Katie> Move, bug
12:58:51 <JarnoO> give the dome a wash maybe?
12:59:05 <JarnoO> or spin it, that'd help too :)
13:13:02 <Dave from B™> Nobody talks around here, anymore?
13:13:26 <JarnoO> well, if there's nothing to talk about, then there's little to saty
13:13:28 <JarnoO> say*
13:13:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:13:59 <JarnoO> I might have something in a few hours, though
13:14:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Only 3 hours until Knight time.
13:14:44 <Dave from B™> Game 1?
13:14:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
13:15:01 <Dave from B™> That's right...you are in but just getting seeded for next round
13:15:10 <Dave from B™> Isles are up 1-0
13:15:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Still cheering for them or going to Seattle?
13:16:02 <Dave from B™> Been an Isles fan for 45 years or so. They will always be #1 but I will cheer for Seattlw
13:16:24 <Dave from B™> I guess I'm actually closer to Danver
13:16:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can relate.
13:16:31 <Dave from B™> Denver*
13:16:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lion getting perky
13:17:01 <JarnoO> Lion ini
13:17:43 <JarnoO> Dep
13:17:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A twofer
13:18:19 <StaceyM> For those of you who catch SB more frequently, do you recommend a particular brand of car cover or is it just personal preference?
13:18:57 <JarnoO> vigorous Dep
13:19:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And it is getting ignored.
13:19:51 <Dave from B™> Park on the highway
13:20:12 <ynpvisitor49> Car covers have been proven to trigger eratic SB intervals
13:20:46 <Dave from B™> I'm planning on a Sturday visit...go Friday:)
13:20:57 <ynpvisitor49> I bought one last year and can definitibely say I've seen 5x more SB erruptions with a cover versus without
13:21:03 <KorbenC> Stacey, my advice is just accept that your car and you will suffer in SB prison :p :)
13:21:27 <ynpvisitor49> Also you have to take the cover off if you want to leave
13:21:34 <ynpvisitor49> So you're gonna get slimed eventually
13:23:10 <StaceyM> Well, we were there 2 weeks ago and had the fortune of catching SB twice, so the truck got "double SB-ed". Was looking for something to help, and noticed several gazers/park-enthusiasts had covers. Was looking for input from those of you with more experience.
13:27:15 <Dave from B™> For a cover or how to clean your vehicle?
13:27:26 <StaceyM> Cover.
13:29:43 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1432±5m if series continues. 6m15s
13:31:13 <JarnoO> Oblong ie.
13:31:15 <JarnoO> ..
13:31:16 <JarnoO> .
13:31:17 <JarnoO> .
13:31:18 <JarnoO> .
13:31:20 <Katie (v2)> Check THAT out!
13:31:34 <JarnoO> and BIG!
13:31:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow!
13:31:42 <Eric> holy crap
13:31:48 <Eric> Real oblong
13:31:50 <Eric> send a txt
13:32:10 <DanS (working)> It's back!
13:32:13 <JarnoO> 1330 ns in-basin
13:32:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I nave never seen it erupt like that!
13:32:38 <Eric> I was just typing that Kevin!
13:32:43 <Eric> That was HUGE!
13:32:48 <Eric> and still is
13:33:25 <Eric> I switched to the cam tab here and couldn't figure out what geyser I was looking at!
13:33:39 <JarnoO> definitely not Artemisia-style
13:34:17 <Eric> People are just walking away down there too!
13:34:22 <JarnoO> 2nd burst? :)
13:34:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Glad it was a ranger that saw it. they wouldn't have believed it!
13:34:47 <Eric> They will when we post the video on FB!
13:35:30 <JarnoO> I wish to thank Grotto for that marathon
13:35:46 <JarnoO> rewarded us with 2 Oblongs. Such a champ
13:36:04 <Eric> Not sure it's done Jarno
13:36:19 <Eric> Keep an eye on giant!
13:37:17 <JarnoO> I'd keep an eye on it for the next hour or so. Such power might even reward us with a series, perhaps 45 minutes later
13:37:32 <JarnoO> might be optimistic
13:38:58 <DanS (working)> Best Oblong I've seen for years - now something else to watch for while waiting on Grand.
13:39:25 <Eric> I will put in FB in a moment
13:39:56 <DanS (working)> Steamboat has some competition today.
13:42:27 <Eric> Bullger
13:43:45 <JarnoO> that was a good unexpected treat today
13:44:31 <KorbenC> Mike caught it :)
13:44:39 <Eric> For sure...I hope we have more regular ones to look forward to :-D
13:44:56 <Eric> Giant platform quiet now
13:46:13 <KorbenC> Id be watching Giant some today once Grotto recovers :)
13:46:42 <Eric> Alright...txt if Giant goes :-P
13:47:11 <JarnoO> in light of this second eruption today - When Oblong restarted in 1996, it first had a series of two followed by 1 to 3 eruptions a day at usually 11h to 13h intervals
13:47:30 <JarnoO> and it did that immediately, with no slow build-up either
13:51:09 <JarnoO> white X
13:51:40 <JarnoO> and back
13:53:55 <JarnoO> a geyser about 180° from this view wants attention
14:04:26 <Dave from B™> wow...that's a lot of people
14:12:01 <LindaG> Dave from B™, hi
14:12:09 <KorbenC> Jarno, start was 1407
14:12:16 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
14:12:17 <Dave from B™> Hi Linda
14:12:52 <Katie (v2)> LC
14:16:03 <JarnoO> how's Oblong doing?
14:16:26 <Eric> someone sleeping at Aurum? :-P
14:19:03 <KorbenC> JarnoO, its breathing a little bit :)
14:19:04 <JarnoO> not so much for Oblong
14:19:05 <Katie (v2)> Oblong steamy - Lion due - will come back soon
14:20:21 <LindaG> Wow that was so emo long, couldnt miss that!
14:20:32 <LindaG> *some oblong
14:27:16 <Dave from B™> Time to replace temp crown with the real one and then wash the van. Have a great evening everyone!
14:27:30 <LindaG> Dave from B™, bye
14:27:37 <Forestbewithyou> By Dave
14:27:41 <JarnoO> cya Dave, good luck
14:27:42 <Forestbewithyou> Bye*
14:36:14 <KorbenC> :lion:
14:36:42 <ynpvisitor85> does Lion have repeated Initials now?
14:36:56 <KorbenC> what do you mean?
14:37:05 <ynpvisitor85> nothing
14:37:23 <KorbenC> Lion has 1 initial, that following eruptions.
14:37:41 <ynpvisitor85> yes, forget it
14:39:31 <ynpvisitor81> how are people walking away? I don't get it.
14:40:19 <LindaG> It's a full moon 😉
14:40:33 <ynpvisitor81> :lol::lol::lol:
14:40:38 <Katie (v2)> still considerable steam at Oblong
14:41:55 <ynpvisitor85> many people have an itinerary of seeing as many geysers not erupting as they can in a day
14:42:03 <LindaG> Lol
14:42:10 <Forestbewithyou> LOL 85
14:42:25 <Forestbewithyou> I remember when giant erupted for me people legit left it and went to watch riverside
14:42:25 <ynpvisitor81> :lol:
14:42:30 <ynpvisitor85> "when does this erupt?" "within 20 minutes" "that is too long, we have to go see others not erupting"
14:43:39 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1541±5m if series continues. 3m33s (aka the most average eruption as far as duration is considered)
14:54:57 <KorbenC> INDY
14:54:57 <KorbenC> .
14:54:58 <KorbenC> .
14:54:58 <KorbenC> .
14:54:58 <KorbenC> .
14:55:01 <KorbenC> 1450 ie
14:55:31 <KorbenC> nice
14:55:34 <Katie (v2)> Thanks, Korben. Asleep at the wheel...
14:57:31 <ynpvisitor94> https://youtu.be/BN9cONxYtrE todays Oblong 1330
14:57:51 <KorbenC> I havent gotten a txt yet?
14:58:52 <ynpvisitor85> ynpvisitor94, that's a really nice mugwump
14:59:24 <Katie (v2)> Just sent text since no one else did
15:00:17 <KevinS> What's that? Indicator. Bee likely in 20 min or less. Oh nice... gotta go. That's too long. (Was a real conversation I had)
15:00:25 <Kitt> thanks Katie
15:00:37 <KorbenC> KevinS, did you see it while you were in YNP?
15:00:49 <KevinS> Yes I did.
15:01:02 <KorbenC> good for you :)
15:01:16 <Ryan> Is the indicator erupting?
15:01:21 <KorbenC> Thx for the 2 txts :)
15:01:23 <KorbenC> Hi Ryan
15:01:23 <Ryan> I was not sure after the third text message....
15:01:39 <Katie (v2)> Second text is whack - I sent the first one
15:01:48 <ynpvisitor48> You all just do not understand people and their priorities.
15:02:04 <ynpvisitor94> text sent
15:02:19 <KorbenC> those people on the BW are gonna get soaked soon :)
15:02:21 <Ryan> Someone send a fourth just so we are sure its erupting.
15:02:32 <Kat> Thx for text
15:02:42 <ynpvisitor3> That is usually your thing Ryan
15:02:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My favorite was that Ranger on the hill talking about it. "Some people think that OF and BH are connected because BH erupts before, during or after OF."
15:02:55 <Ryan> At least mine are for different events....
15:03:01 <ynpvisitor118> Thank You
15:03:02 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, hahaha
15:03:22 <Ryan> I just got three texts for the same event
15:03:37 <KorbenC> Bee
15:03:38 <ynpvisitor3> the scandal of it all...
15:03:38 <JarnoO> :bee:
15:03:40 <ynpvisitor48> Anyone thanked Dave for his sacrifice?
15:03:40 <ynpvisitor92> Wow 3 texts.got em.thanks.
15:03:51 <JarnoO> two times lucky
15:03:58 <KorbenC> someone send 3 more txts :P
15:04:02 <Katie (v2)> I sent the first. Second is wrong. Third reinforced first (but wasn't me)
15:04:20 <ynpvisitor48> weeeeeee
15:04:20 <Kitt> yay Bee
15:04:22 <ynpvisitor3> now Ryan can send his
15:04:44 <ynpvisitor92> They worked. Yay. Better than none by far
15:04:54 <KorbenC> nice lighting
15:05:15 <KorbenC> can we zoom out too get full height?
15:05:29 <ynpvisitor3> we have full height
15:05:47 <ynpvisitor3> great cam work
15:05:51 <ynpvisitor94> ynpvisitor85, Do you actually see mugwump in that video
15:06:42 <Kitt> Very nice Beehive
15:06:45 <Ryan> That is a full 150ft
15:07:02 <Eric> JIT!
15:07:02 <Ryan> Approaching 155.
15:07:05 <Kitt> yay, bee shower
15:07:07 <ynpvisitor92> Looks like no wind
15:07:30 <Ryan> For reference, the horizon above BH is 140ft.
15:07:45 <Eric> Not a foot over 153!
15:08:15 <Ryan> ....154 >:)
15:08:18 <ynpvisitor30> how is that reference calculated?
15:08:28 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor30, math ;(
15:08:31 <KorbenC> ;)**
15:08:44 <ynpvisitor92> Just for reference how was that tree line height above the cone determined
15:09:03 <Eric> really long string!
15:09:08 <Kitt> the cam is on top of the inn, so you are above bee when viewing
15:09:12 <Forestbewithyou> LOL Eric
15:09:15 <ynpvisitor48> Google did it.
15:09:16 <Eric> and a micro helicopter
15:09:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> SWAG
15:10:01 <ynpvisitor85> log rhythms
15:10:10 <KorbenC> another way you could in theory do it is just calculate the number of pixles Beehive's cone is on your screen and then since you know the cones height you can just multiply that porportionaly to get the height, doesnt matter the zoom becuase your cone pixels will change :) you dont even need the height of the trees
15:10:18 <Kitt> sorry number 30, sometimes people don't understand when you are wanting a serious answer
15:10:22 <Eric> You would have to know the current zoom level of the cam to make a guess at height, which you could do if you knew the width of the benches :-D
15:10:57 <KorbenC> Eric, you dont have to know the current zoom, you just have to know the height of the cone IRL, the height of the cone on screen and the height of the water.
15:11:18 <KorbenC> it doesnt matter what level of zoom you need, becuase when you zoom out the cone takes up less pixles.
15:11:43 <Eric> well, you cannot get close enough to the cone to measure it...but you can measure the bench :-D
15:11:43 <Kitt> which the other day I pointed out that I thought the cone was 3.5 feet tall, but I was told the other side was a different number
15:12:09 <Kitt> thanks again Katie for the text
15:12:18 <ynpvisitor30> and then looking down on it makes it look smaller? bigger?
15:12:33 <ynpvisitor85> makes it sad
15:12:37 <Katie (v2)> My pleasure, Kitt. :)
15:12:39 <Eric> hahaha
15:12:54 <Eric> still laughing 85
15:13:00 <ynpvisitor85> :)
15:13:39 <ynpvisitor92> Be nice to have some in basin measurements at the baseline compared to screen visuals
15:14:19 <ynpvisitor92> Anyway. Back to work. Thanks for the texts
15:15:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Anybody got a 200 foot Philly Rod?
15:15:42 <Eric> does laser distancing work on geyser columns?
15:16:32 <Eric> If you know your baseline, and can measure from your spot to the top of the column, pretty easy to work out height from there.
15:17:18 <Eric> But technically, I think if you know the benches exact length, you could pretty easily measure the height too.
15:18:13 <Eric> but maybe skew angle affects that measurement?
15:19:46 <KorbenC> I might be changing this weekends hiking plan from DeCaLiBron over too Elbert :)
15:20:44 <KorbenC> Elberts route is about the easiest Class 1 there is, but highest point in CO and thats 10.5 miles above treeline :)
15:21:18 <kc (working)> not a lot of switchbacks if I recall
15:22:07 <kc (working)> made it a slog
15:23:45 <LindaG> Well I'm two for two today. Missed oblong and beehive.
15:23:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is a lot shorter if you don't use the switchbacks Korben.
15:24:12 <ynpvisitor81> Sorry, LindaG!!
15:24:46 <ynpvisitor85> replay looks just the same on a screen
15:25:45 <Eric> I did that this weekend, took the climbers route on a hike instead of the long switchbacks :-D
15:25:51 <Eric> Straight up baby
15:26:11 <Eric> You end up a stone climbers hut, one of 3 on Mt. Hood.
15:35:59 <LindaG> ynpvisitor81, 👍I did watch replay
15:38:04 <KorbenC> Hi Graham
15:38:11 <GO OBLONG> good afternoon/evening
15:38:22 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
15:39:11 <ynpvisitor85> Joe has great video of the O
15:39:18 <GO OBLONG> looking forward to another Oblong eruption this evening
15:39:26 <GO OBLONG> did I miss anything else?
15:39:35 <GO OBLONG> yeah I saw the one Eric posted
15:39:38 <ynpvisitor85> just steamboat
15:39:43 <GO OBLONG> yawn
15:40:00 <GO OBLONG> i see it went up to 98 eruptions in the last 2 years, bumped up one
15:40:03 <ynpvisitor85> twice a week now, bleh
15:40:39 <GO OBLONG> could get over 100 as the long disturbance interval of 2018 iwas Aug
15:42:25 <ynpvisitor85> is a 4-day interval in August a sign of a DISTURBANCE?
15:42:26 <LindaG> GO OBLONG, hi
15:42:32 <GO OBLONG> i see Tara is posting, I wonder if she was at SB. not listed tho
15:42:52 <GO OBLONG> no 85
15:43:27 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor85, a D interval would likely be double digits :)
15:44:18 <GO OBLONG> the next 4 intervals to drop off GT will be 20 14 14 and 17 days
15:44:26 <GO OBLONG> lst interval that long was Apr 2019
15:45:28 <ynpvisitor85> do intervals associated with Disturbances have to be longer? If so, why? Because they have? Or what?
15:46:28 <GO OBLONG> SB doesnt like disturbances. so usually people in the park notice that theres a disturbance going on and SB doesnt recover water as quickly, resulting in one or more long intervals
15:46:45 <KorbenC> Long itnervals dont mean D, D's tend to mean long itnervals, all 4 D's in this cycle, bumped the intervals up too 10+ days, it seems to get "Zapped" I believe is the term :)
15:47:44 <GO OBLONG> there also seems to be a winter slowdown but nt as dramatic as a disturbance
15:48:11 <KorbenC> GO OBLONG, winter seismic signals are also lot weaker, but that doesnt affect intervals :)
15:49:10 <KorbenC> the seismologist say tahts likely because of all the frozen water around, which could be a result of the winter slowdown because it has to work harder.
15:49:21 <GO OBLONG> has anyone checked signal strength and following intervals?
15:50:28 <GO OBLONG> i dont know if the frozen water means it doesn refill as fast?
15:52:36 <GO OBLONG> oh, I see Tara was around yesterday so hopefuly she went to SB
15:52:52 <JarnoO> Korben, OF was 1547, not 46
15:55:14 <GO OBLONG> big black cloud there
15:57:59 <ynpvisitor85> roar
15:58:26 <Katie (v2)> It's trying or last gasping...

16:51:34 <LindaG> 🙂
16:52:09 <GO OBLONG> game didnt end with the right result :(
16:52:31 <LindaG> 😕
16:52:33 <Eric> I think the last closed interval was 11h 42m for Oblong, so keep your eye on it tonight.
16:52:36 <kc (working)> so now what happens, not familiar with this round robin stuff
16:53:14 <ynpvisitor102> Mugwump 1636 https://youtu.be/q_sBGSaIm1E

17:14:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like an outie to me.
17:17:18 <KorbenC> thats cool, last 2 OF's (not including this one) had the exact same duration, that doesnt happen too often
17:18:33 <LindaGt> Kevin L™ 🌵, what's your temp today?
17:19:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Pretty cool today. 106° right now.

17:21:50 <GO OBLONG> 3-5" frecast here and winds may 30-50mh depending on track
17:21:50 <KorbenC> 75 is new?
17:21:58 <ynpvisitor75> 75 is old
17:22:07 <KorbenC> new to the chat**
17:23:16 <LindaGt> GO OBLONG, I think 3-6 inches in some areas here have been predicted
17:23:31 <LindaGt> 60+ wind gusts
17:25:06 <GO OBLONG> stay safe
17:25:19 <LindaGt> U too
17:25:22 <GO OBLONG> we have had some outer bandstorms ths afternoon, raning now

17:26:20 <LindaGt> I brought in all my monarch caterpillars 😃
17:28:31 <KorbenC> one of you better get me a video :p
17:28:54 <KorbenC> Hi kc
17:29:01 <Forestbewithyou> LOL I second Korbens request LMAO
17:29:05 <GO OBLONG> its just rain, go stand in a shower
17:29:06 <kcmule> howdy
17:29:23 <Eric> watch the news Coop, I am sure lots of reporters are out there trying to find the perfect angle of wind/damage ratio :-P
17:29:25 <ynpvisitor75> LOL
17:29:41 <GO OBLONG> hi kc ..... hockey to watch now
17:29:54 <KorbenC> my brothers planning to go look at apartments for college this weekend, and then my dad and I are gonna go try East Ridge on Elbert, either gonna leave the house at like 2AM, or go out and sleep the ngiht before.
17:30:35 <KorbenC> we should be able to make it up the 4 wheel drive road, which cuts off some distance
17:30:59 <kcmule> shootouts in postseason = barf
17:31:57 <JarnoO> (and some 21585 entries more)
17:32:59 <GO OBLONG> i am not a fan of them so far .. haha
17:33:30 <GO OBLONG> oohh i remember seeigBrillant Pool
17:34:34 <GO OBLONG> mine was in 1997 ... so keep working at it JarnoO
17:35:03 <JarnoO> there's now the whole 1996 log available on GT. Might start with 1997 this week or next week
17:35:24 <GO OBLONG> thanks JarnoO, thats great
17:35:38 <JarnoO> need to relax for a few days until the call of the 1997 log is irresistable :)
17:36:04 <GO OBLONG> Tara put a bunch of the 1997 Splendid eruptions in GT
17:36:06 <Eric> Wow...well done Jarno!
17:36:40 <GO OBLONG> 4 Sep 1997 was one I put in :)
17:38:14 <JarnoO> took about 2 weeks to do the log excluding long breaks inbetween times where I worked daily on that log (a few times a whole month in a day or so)
17:38:36 <GO OBLONG> ooh and SPiteful and F&M that day ... good one
17:38:52 <JarnoO> oh well. Enjoy those 1996 times. Off to take a shower
17:39:37 <LindaGt> KorbenC, I'll get one if all the trees swaying out my window
17:40:01 <GO OBLONG> thanks JarnoO
17:40:29 <KorbenC> LindaGt, :)
17:41:33 <LindaGt> KorbenC, I'll post on facebook
17:42:30 <ynpvisitor75> grand
17:42:47 <Eric> booooom
17:42:52 <Eric> is it grand ini?
17:43:03 <Forestbewithyou> I think it is an ini maj
17:43:03 <ynpvisitor75> ;)
17:43:03 <GO OBLONG> and bugler
17:43:10 <Eric> and OT
17:43:23 <Eric> why not have Giant go too?
17:43:40 <ynpvisitor75> and Sawmill
17:43:50 <Eric> ohh, that sounds good as well
17:44:09 <Eric> triple threat...The bugler, OT & Sawmill
17:44:54 <Eric> The bugler's hole just sounds kinda obscene though
17:45:07 <ynpvisitor75> LOL
17:45:25 <ynpvisitor75> there are kids here
17:45:25 <Forestbewithyou> OH brother
17:45:36 <Forestbewithyou> yea Eric keep it G
17:46:29 <Eric> I just said it sounded obscene...it's like when your parents are doing taxes and say the F word over and over again....you are not supposed to repeat it!
17:48:38 <ynpvisitor75> did this just become a group therapy session?
17:57:32 <DanS (working)> Looks like a troop of ants heading for Castle
17:57:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dark cloids
17:58:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum has been ignored today
17:58:36 <Eric> Sorry, everyone, I will try harder to watch my potty mouth!
17:58:49 <GO OBLONG> its splashy
17:59:07 <Eric> Yes, that looks nice Graham
18:00:28 <GO OBLONG> Castle interval is odd
18:01:51 <GO OBLONG> 15h18m
18:05:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Big Aurum splash
18:09:15 <JarnoO> I see what you're up to, cam. I come back and you drop out. Tsk tsk
18:31:30 <ynpvisitor75> long interval with no mug entry
18:31:50 <JarnoO> probably had a few false starts
18:32:27 <ynpvisitor75> Tina noted a surge yesterday
18:32:28 <LindaGt> Lighting is bad also, hard to see
18:32:49 <LindaGt> From cam anyway
18:33:23 <GO OBLONG> no Aurum yet
18:33:23 <ynpvisitor75> 34 mins, probably one false push
18:33:39 <GO OBLONG> splashing better now
18:33:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Aurum splashes.
18:33:57 <LindaGt> 🙂
18:34:40 <ynpvisitor75> dooblay poo
18:38:44 <Eric> still no aurum???
18:38:49 <Eric> booo
18:50:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Will go during OF
18:52:31 <GO OBLONG> some nice rain now
18:56:54 <JarnoO> Fluffy stretching time
18:59:13 <JarnoO> Castle 1833 maj
18:59:49 <JarnoO> I think we missed a minor during that 17h interval
19:00:11 <GO OBLONG> that figures .... we are waiting for a non-interested OF
19:00:37 <GO OBLONG> and were watching Aurum splashing when Castle started
19:02:47 <GO OBLONG> of
19:02:49 <GO OBLONG> finally
19:04:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> What a game. Knights up 1-0 end 1, down 3-1 end two, won 5-3.
19:06:36 <LindaGt> Looks nice on static
19:11:40 <GO OBLONG> no Aurum yet
19:12:31 <JarnoO> I hope one day GT will properly support the ≤, ≥ and ± characters just like it already does <, > and ~
19:13:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am looking for jumper cables Graham.
19:21:58 <JarnoO> Korben, Isaias a hurricane once again
19:22:01 <KorbenC> That was a nice 5 mile walk, which ended up with the storms getting revenge on me chasing them :P
19:22:25 <KorbenC> JarnoO, I saw, rapid intensification :)
19:22:31 <JarnoO> Steamboat today was measured at "only" 279 feet
19:22:47 <KorbenC> pft, restarts are taller than that :P
19:23:16 <KorbenC> I have seen a 326 ft restart :P Taller than an eruption, its slacking
19:27:13 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy Grotto Fountain should the system be fully recovered before nightfall
19:27:23 <KorbenC> Bye Jarno
19:28:03 <KorbenC> JarnoO, if you havent noticed I did all the OF's today so that you can take a break
19:31:47 <KorbenC> nice looking Oblong steam
19:32:16 <GO OBLONG> lots of steam lit up
19:34:24 <KorbenC> GO OBLONG=Emily, or GS?
19:41:05 <DanS (working)> Grotto Fountain?
19:41:58 <ynpvisitor43> That's about the right spot for it. Everything is pretty steamy though.
19:42:08 <KorbenC> GO, can we zoom in too see water if it is ie?
19:48:56 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
19:49:10 <KorbenC> Make sure to keep an eye on Oblong tonight, Sir. Camop :)
19:54:14 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi
19:56:48 <KorbenC> Rside
19:58:42 <ynpvisitor43> That was a pretty dramatic burst of steam. Not like its timid puffs at the treeline.
19:59:25 <DanS (working)> Humidity has gone way up.
20:01:54 <GO OBLONG> no Aurum yet
20:13:04 <GO OBLONG> Morning interval just hit 1 year
20:13:32 <KorbenC> yup
20:25:49 <KorbenC> OF
20:26:00 <KorbenC> OF seems to be having long, short itnervals this weekend
20:26:58 <GO OBLONG> that was not really a long or short interval
20:28:14 <KorbenC> by long/short I mean, 80 minutes, 100 minutes, ect.
20:28:43 <KorbenC> that OF looked medium :)
20:29:38 <GO OBLONG> see ya
20:29:40 <GO OBLONG> well that does it for me, i was waiting for OF but since it went early I am quitting
20:29:48 <KorbenC> Bye Graham.
20:29:55 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Graham
20:29:58 <KorbenC> Thanks as always for driving.
20:30:10 <DanS (working)> g'night
20:48:11 <KorbenC> I am gonna head out for the night, bye all.
20:49:00 <DanS (working)> Daisy
20:49:58 <DanS (working)> g'night - I'm out too
20:52:35 <Forestbewithyou> I am out too good night everyone
23:26:54 <ynpvisitor82> WOW what a Clear Night
23:29:38 <Michael> Should be lots of moonlight too. Wish I could be out there wandering around.
