02:20:23 <Michael> Grotto ie. Maybe just started.
03:05:05 <Michael> daisy
06:06:51 <JarnoO> wouldn't you see more steam at these temperatures for Oblong?
06:10:59 <ynpvisitor93> Is it snowing?
06:11:35 <JarnoO> looks like it's smoke from the Lone Star fire
06:12:20 <ynpvisitor40> did you see the puny grand at 0314 68% rh has mudh to do with what is seen
06:13:59 <JarnoO> even at low humidities and high temperatures Oblong still puts up an impressive steamplume. Artemisia-style to be precise
06:14:23 <JarnoO> which we can also see at relatively high temperatures and low humidities
06:21:34 <ynpvisitor74> To give Jarnos point about oblong. I was able to see the steamplume from churn with ease and you could totally tell something was happening
06:22:34 <JarnoO> you in-basin or from past experience, #74? For clarification :)
06:22:57 <ynpvisitor74> In-Basin this year. It’s me forest
06:23:16 <JarnoO> morning Forest
06:23:21 <ynpvisitor74> I was just going to get breakfast but wanted to make sure I was t missing anything
06:24:01 <ynpvisitor74> So I will be back in about 30 min
06:24:16 <JarnoO> morning Graham
06:25:03 <GO FOUNTAIN> Morning or afternoon

07:28:12 <JarnoO> morning kc
07:28:32 <Betty> howdy kcmule
07:29:46 <kcmule> mornin mornin
07:32:01 <JarnoO> Bee's very splashy
07:32:22 <ynpvisitor45> Maybe it will go in the morning?
07:33:05 <JarnoO> no idea. Its intervals post-Giantess are all wacky
07:33:35 <JarnoO> needs to get its stuff together at some point
07:40:13 <JarnoO> did the fire subside a bit?
07:40:41 <JarnoO> probably too smokey to see anything I guess
07:42:19 <JarnoO> I think there's a decent chance of getting an LS today. Silver seems to be putting out quite some steam
07:43:59 <Forestbewithyou> Hello Everyone!
07:44:09 <JarnoO> morning again Forest
07:44:22 <Betty> hi Forestbewithyou

07:54:40 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Terry
07:55:25 <Terry> Good morning everybody! Cloudless 70 deg weather here in upstate NY. Perfect! And rare.
07:56:37 <JarnoO> that was some big steam from Giantess while it was windstill
08:04:03 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
08:04:11 <Kevin L™️ > Hi
08:04:30 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Kevin
08:05:40 <Betty> hi CraigC, Terry and Kevin L™️ 🥔

08:12:21 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Dave
08:12:33 <JarnoO> morning Dave
08:12:51 <Dave from B™> Good morning Forest, Good afternoon Jarno
08:14:51 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
08:17:44 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty!
08:20:28 <Dave from B™> I see Graham couldn't sleep last night
08:21:09 <Eric> Morning
08:21:17 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Eric
08:21:25 <Eric> Hi Forest
08:21:26 <Betty> morning Eric
08:21:32 <Eric> Hi Betty
08:21:34 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
08:21:39 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:22:03 <Dave from B™> I figured you would be out hiking this morning
08:22:42 <Eric> I have projects I need to get done
08:22:45 <Eric> at home
08:23:20 <Eric> mixing cement and putting in new deck posts this morning.
08:23:32 <Eric> yeeehaaa
08:23:40 <JarnoO> morning Eric
08:23:46 <Eric> Hi Jarno
08:25:22 <Dave from B™> Replacing old ones or expanding?
08:26:27 <ynpvisitor5> Of window
08:27:27 <Eric> replacing the old deck
08:29:38 <Eric> wonder where Graham is headed to next?
08:30:32 <Dave from B™> Has he checked on F&M yet?
08:30:44 <Eric> Not that I know of
08:31:02 <Eric> Went to Fountain early this morning
08:31:02 <Dave from B™> I bet he will catch Grand and head down basin
08:31:16 <Eric> HK finally got his quiet Grand :-D
08:50:49 <JarnoO> short at 2m25s
08:51:39 <JarnoO> probably will go somewhere between half-way and at the end of NPS' window
08:57:57 <ynpvisitor75> wow is that fog or smoke obscuring the view?
08:58:06 <JarnoO> smoke
08:58:25 <ynpvisitor75> that is what I figured
08:58:58 <Eric> Have we looked toward the fire yet today?
08:59:26 <ynpvisitor59> yes
08:59:37 <ynpvisitor59> to smoky to see anything
08:59:44 <Eric> ahh, thanks 59
09:00:03 <Eric> Thought that might be the case with our visibility here
09:00:22 <JarnoO> morning Laura
09:00:33 <Laura> good morning everyone
09:00:49 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Laura
09:00:55 <Eric> Morning Laura
09:01:17 <Betty> hi Laura
09:02:37 <Laura> Yeah just looked at the Yosemite webcams quickly they are just as bad....three fires in the area
09:03:33 <Eric> Fires everywhere! Anyone had word on the Bridger fire near Bozeman yet this morning?
09:04:10 <Laura> It is so stinking hot in the entire Western US we are just a tinderbox
09:04:46 <Laura> SoCal is going to have Santa Ana winds starting Tuesday so it could get worse fast
09:05:25 <Eric> Yikes...No good
09:05:40 <Eric> Bridger Fire went from Starting Friday to 11k acres yesterday
09:07:40 <Laura> Got that beat. The creek fire south of Yosemite started YESTERDAY and is 35,000 acres already
09:08:19 <Laura> Some people had to be taken out by copter after the fire trapped them near a lake south of yosemite
09:08:23 <Eric> ok...apparently that was a mistakenly reported number NOT 11k, it's only 7k...news sources are now correcting it.
09:08:25 <Dave from B™> Cool temps tomorrow will help Montaan fires
09:08:35 <Eric> Wow...that is nuts Laura
09:08:42 <Eric> I hope so Dave
09:09:18 <Laura> Yeah its scary Eric, the west is a tinderbox
09:10:02 <Laura> Too little rain this winter and then these scorching high temps....I am not looking forward to October when our Santa Ana Winds blow in SoCal
09:11:00 <Eric> Apparently all we have to do is go out and rake our forests :-P
09:11:15 <JarnoO> Turban 0909
09:11:41 <Eric> I assume Graham is at Grand
09:11:42 <Laura> lol Eric
09:13:20 <Eric> This is a nice note for Bridger Fire - "High temperatures Monday and Tuesday are forecasted to be in the 50s, with precipitation predicted."
09:13:29 <Eric> That should knock down fire danger
09:13:35 <Eric> Grotto
09:13:36 <JarnoO> Grotto
09:14:26 <Laura> OK here I go again, which one is Grotto
09:14:54 <Laura> I see two big steam plumes, one behind grand and one to the left
09:15:17 <JarnoO> the one behind Grand is Grotto, the one off to the left is Castle
09:15:34 <Laura> TY
09:15:42 <JarnoO> Castle's plume will stay visible throughout much of the day. It's a big steamer
09:15:47 <Eric> It's all good Laura...ask away, over and over again if needed :-D
09:16:04 <Dave from B™> Eric, I saw that rake post. Some people are so dumb
09:16:12 <Laura> Hey I am learning I at least know where Grand is now!
09:16:18 <Eric> But that reference image down on the right side of this page will help a lot too if you want to stop relying on our bad info :-P
09:16:22 <JarnoO> :)
09:17:05 <Eric> Not just a rake post, Trump has said multiple times, last year and this year that we just need to rake our forests!
09:17:12 <SantaFe108> have I been logged in all night
09:17:19 <Forestbewithyou> Yup
09:17:25 <SantaFe108> dang
09:17:26 <JarnoO> morning SF
09:17:29 <Eric> haha
09:17:36 <Eric> Morning SF
09:17:36 <SantaFe108> hello everyoen
09:17:37 <Forestbewithyou> I know because I logged on this morning at 4 sorta
09:17:42 <Forestbewithyou> Hi SF
09:17:46 <Eric> Hope you had fun at the museum yesterday
09:17:51 <JarnoO> event cycle 0815 ie
09:17:57 <Dave from B™> SanteFe108, wait until you get this month's bill for time in this chatroom
09:18:00 <SantaFe108> Eric, yes good time, but it was very very hot
09:18:00 <Laura> Hi SF, are we ready to cook today
09:18:06 <Forestbewithyou> LOL Dave
09:18:08 <Laura> 108 in Mission Viejo today
09:18:12 <SantaFe108> Laura, unfortunately
09:18:46 <SantaFe108> cannot belive we have to wear dress clothes in 110+
09:19:34 <Kevin L™️ > How was training SantaFe?
09:19:47 <Eric> dang...grand has really been stretching
09:19:53 <Betty> hi SantaFe108
09:20:00 <Laura> What museum were you at SF?
09:20:05 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™️ 🥔, good, more of just showing us where everything is, next month is when we learn stuff
09:20:13 <Eric> Daisy
09:20:14 <SantaFe108> Laura, Southern California Railway Museum
09:20:34 <JarnoO> at least there's the flower accompanying us
09:20:43 <Betty> yeah
09:20:55 <SantaFe108> theyre deciding if they want to have motorman class first or general railway rules class first
09:21:46 <Kevin L™️ > Packing to leave now
09:21:55 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin L
09:22:02 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™️ 🥔, going home?
09:22:06 <Dave from B™> Headed back to the heat!
09:22:18 <Betty> how are the Grandkids doing?
09:22:23 <JarnoO> SF, probably for the better to have general railway rules first before motorman stuff
09:22:25 <SantaFe108> he is glad to join us in the heat :)
09:23:10 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, the thing is the motorman class is for streetcars only and the rules is for heavy rail GCOR stuff so its kinda weird
09:23:21 <Dave from B™> 108, has Kevin L adopted you yet because of your love for trains?:D
09:23:37 <Eric> haha
09:23:42 <SantaFe108> lol
09:23:43 <Eric> Geysers and Trains!
09:24:02 <Eric> It's not that surprising...the love of STEAM
09:24:04 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
09:24:06 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I bet smoke was hard for you in YNP. Sorry
09:24:32 <Eric> It didn't seem very smoky when kevin was in the park
09:24:34 <SantaFe108> lol, our steam locomotive is like a pampered baby
09:24:41 <SantaFe108> since it's the only one we have that runs
09:24:48 <Eric> :-D
09:25:10 <Eric> Portland Rail Museum uses their big boy quite often
09:25:35 <SantaFe108> probably the most unnecessarily complicated train is the metro and san diego light rail modern ones
09:25:57 <SantaFe108> they are built so stupidly complicated there's like 50 buttons to make the AC turn on
09:26:24 <SantaFe108> we were gonna make them part of operations but its too much so now LRV is its own department
09:27:00 <Eric> Our museum picked up the Brooklyn Roundhouse and is working on refurb and install locally
09:27:09 <SantaFe108> very good
09:27:24 <Eric> 102' roundhouse
09:27:33 <SantaFe108> Im glad we don't have to run steam because in this heat the cabs get over 150+ F
09:28:28 <Eric> Yes, I can imagine the cabs are stupid hot when running low speeds
09:28:39 <SantaFe108> Eric, our narrow gauge 3ft barn has a turntable connected to it but it's to the side
09:28:46 <Eric> We have the Freedom Train SF if you are ever in Portland
09:29:02 <Eric> 4449
09:29:04 <SantaFe108> next time I ride the coast starlight :)
09:29:28 <Eric> Yep, stop in PDX and checkout the rail museum
09:29:53 <SantaFe108> if kevin's interested right now we have PE #717 over the pit being worked on
09:29:54 <Dave from B™> Enjoy your Sunday everyone. Off to sweat. Safe travels, Kevin.
09:30:04 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Dave
09:30:08 <SantaFe108> Dave from B™, good luck dave! don't let the heat bite
09:30:22 <Dave from B™> 103 here yesetrday 84 vtoday and 50 tomorrow
09:30:23 <Eric> This is the roundhouse: https://orhf.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Doyles-49-pic-v300dpi-1-e1555702650410-1189x800.jpg
09:30:33 <Eric> Bye Dave
09:30:45 <Eric> I need to go start working on my deck too :-(
09:30:48 <SantaFe108> Eric, wow thats beautiful

10:15:55 <Betty> Thomas says hello to you, Eric
10:16:02 <Eric> Hi Thomas :-D
10:16:08 <Eric> Miss you guys!
10:16:19 <Lori S> oh, right, Bob mentioned early store closings
10:16:25 <Eric> I would send you a bag of tater tots frozen if they could make it :-P
10:17:01 <Lori S> oh hi jarno
10:17:19 <Betty> we talked about Edgefield yesterday, how great the evening was with you :-)
10:17:36 <Eric> ahhh, so sweet :heart::heart::heart:
10:17:48 <Betty> while we had a beer of course, hehehe
10:18:07 <Eric> haha...beer is important :-D Not the best beer in Portland, but fun place.
10:18:30 <Betty> the beer was great in Portland!
10:19:04 <Eric> Grand should happen at 1027
10:19:51 <Eric> Nice to get those Turban calls
10:22:25 <Betty> and we sure liked the beer in Edgefield
10:22:31 <Eric> Nice improbable boils
10:22:56 <JarnoO> should Giantess have entered a series, starting from about today until roughly 40 to 50 days later would be prime time for a follow-up eruption to happen
10:23:10 <JarnoO> Spa 1019
10:23:22 <Eric> Awesome...they are just not known to produce great beers...but it's very hit and miss since different brewers go in and out of there a lot.
10:24:00 <Eric> Cool...hope Craig got video
10:24:13 <Eric> 3m until Grand :-P
10:24:48 <SantaFe108 mobi> I think they decided its going to be motorman's class next time
10:25:24 <JarnoO> Rocket
10:25:26 <Betty> we sure want to visit again if we are in Portland again
10:25:37 <Eric> Nice
10:25:46 <Betty> we will give you a call
10:26:06 <Eric> Awesome...maybe I can hitch a ride to the park :-P
10:26:26 <Eric> Waves on Grand probably about now :-D
10:27:38 <Eric> Oh come on...GO Grand!
10:27:44 <JarnoO> quite surprised Rocket decided to go. With Spa ie you'd think it would be a marathon
10:27:47 <Lori S> Eric, every time i hear waves on grand now, i recalll Korben and his dad leaving me in thrir dust lol
10:27:58 <Eric> haha
10:28:02 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
10:28:10 <JarnoO> Turban 1027
10:28:14 <Eric> Well, prediction fail for me
10:28:19 <Eric> Stupid Turban!
10:28:27 <Forestbewithyou> Every time I hear waves on grand I think about when I was at lonestar and I got a waves on grand call from there
10:28:29 <JarnoO> Grand can still go at this point, though
10:29:36 <Eric> looks like we will be over 7.5h for this grand!
10:29:47 <JarnoO> starting to look like it
10:29:53 <Lori S> Forestbewithyou, that's a bit if a jog lol
10:31:58 <Eric> haha...yes, serious run to Grand from lonestar
10:32:11 <Eric> jump on a raft on the firehole though
10:32:15 <Forestbewithyou> Yea
10:32:37 <Forestbewithyou> Or you know fire up that mach 1 jet plane :)
10:32:40 <Eric> Lion
10:32:43 <JarnoO> Lion ini
10:32:43 <Eric> ini
10:32:46 <Eric> I guess
10:33:27 <Eric> Not sure how fast you could kayak down the firehole from Lone Sar
10:33:29 <Eric> STar
10:34:09 <Lori S> well, you'd need to portage around Kepler so...
10:35:55 <Eric> Almost 5 miles of kayaking and you would have to navigate Kepler :-P
10:36:13 <Eric> meh, real kayakers would shred kepler :-P
10:36:28 <Lori S> eek
10:37:44 <Eric> or get shredded by Kepler :-P
10:38:04 <Eric> Just looking at the drop...serious rock/snag dangers there
10:38:23 <Eric> Probably be faster to just run
10:39:18 <Lori S> or log on to chat :p
10:39:43 <Eric> The firehole looks like it would be the worst kayak trip ever up there
10:39:59 <Eric> Looking at some of the kepler area footage, it's just ugly
10:40:28 <JarnoO> dinnertime
10:40:51 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1152±10m if series continues. Not timing it now because else the food would be cold :P
10:41:04 <Eric> yep, work time for me! Enjoy Grand @ 1046 Hopefully!
10:41:15 <Lori S> enjoy ur dinner
10:41:52 <Lori S> bye jarno & eric

10:50:28 <Forestbewithyou> Oh now that Linda is here grand can go
10:50:31 <LindaG> Lori S, 😊
10:50:40 <Forestbewithyou> I think it was waiting for you Linda
10:50:40 <LindaG> Go grand go
10:51:02 <Lori S> yes, that must be it :p
10:51:12 <Forestbewithyou> :p
10:51:18 <Lori S> and yeah i saw that abt bears.
10:51:41 <LindaG> Lori S, oh ok just saw on google
10:52:12 <Lori S> thx thou and others may want to see it
10:52:14 <LindaG> Wow last two grand were 7hr +
10:52:39 <LindaG> Oh take it back just one
10:53:05 <LindaG> Well gotta give this eats up my data plan
10:53:14 <LindaG> *go
10:53:20 <LindaG> Bye
10:53:24 <Lori S> :(
10:53:29 <Lori S> ok bye
10:54:15 <ynpvisitor58> Maybe it will go past 8 hours
10:55:17 <Forestbewithyou> maybe this will be the day it has 100 bursts :p
10:55:29 <Lori S> not sure who is driving but could we peek tiward the fire?
10:55:40 <ynpvisitor58> My prediction more likely
10:55:50 <Forestbewithyou> Of course mine was a joke
10:56:11 <Lori S> Forestbewithyou, i knew that :p
10:56:32 <ynpvisitor58> If you count every burst during eruption, it could happen :p
10:57:09 <Forestbewithyou> So when it does have more than 2 bursts do they get progressively taller or is there like a "cap
10:57:12 <ynpvisitor58> Not sure there is much of a plume to see yet
10:57:29 <Betty> LC ie
10:57:42 <ynpvisitor58> Sometimes bigger, sometimes smaller
10:57:47 <Lori S> yeah just wondering
10:57:58 <Lori S> no big deal
11:01:38 <Betty> doggie
11:02:57 <Lori S> Betty, where?
11:04:01 <ynpvisitor58> Turban
11:04:45 <Betty> near Inn parking lot, in the meadow. Out of sight atm
11:05:03 <Lori S> oh ok
11:06:23 <ynpvisitor58> 16m Turban, still no Grand. Maybe a Grand start coming up next cycle
11:09:16 <ynpvisitor3> shortest Turban this morning
11:10:34 <Forestbewithyou> Well it will probably erupt right after I leave which is right now talk to you all later
11:11:03 <Lori S> bye forest
11:24:44 <Betty> daisy
11:26:35 <Betty> there was the doggie
11:26:48 <Betty> still taking a nap
11:33:47 <JarnoO> G1Q | 10m19s
11:37:48 <Betty> Graham is back to the hill
11:38:07 <ynpvisitor35> No BHI yet
11:38:14 <Betty> maybe checking F&M later
11:38:26 <Betty> hi Graham?
11:39:05 <ynpvisitor35> Yes G here
11:39:21 <Betty> nice
11:39:50 <JarnoO> slow start
11:40:58 <ynpvisitor105> But nice height
11:41:20 <ynpvisitor35> And a short
11:41:22 <JarnoO> another short
11:44:31 <JarnoO> 2 minutes sharp for this OF too. Did need 27 seconds to finally get going
11:50:23 <JarnoO> Lion soon
11:50:53 <JarnoO> didn't expect it this soon :P
11:51:24 <ynpvisitor23> Jarno, does anyone else ever get a chance to enter a time in GT?
11:51:27 <Betty> haha
11:51:49 <JarnoO> uhmm... when I'm away for dinner and at other times of the day
11:58:10 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1257±5m if series continues. 3m44s
12:02:37 <ynpvisitor103> JarnoO, i put the end time for the previous grotto in the comments of my entry. I put ie since i saw it from grand with trees in the way.
12:03:03 <JarnoO> so Grotto turned off @ 1054?
12:03:18 <ynpvisitor103> Maybe ns would be more accurate
12:04:10 <ynpvisitor102> Hi all, KorbenC here
12:04:13 <ynpvisitor102> Sitting up a thousand or so feet above treeline to cool off:D
12:04:39 <Betty> hi Mountain boy
12:05:07 <ynpvisitor102> 55 is alot better that 75 F
12:06:22 <JarnoO> Craig, abnormally short Grotto end to start interval either way, interesting. Maybe that Spa eruption has got something to do with that - thus instead of a marathon a relay race
12:07:55 <ynpvisitor102> Anything from Bee?
12:08:17 <JarnoO> two South Bubblers
12:08:30 <JarnoO> but otherwise only the occasional splash
12:08:33 <ynpvisitor102> Any response from Bee?
12:08:58 <JarnoO> oh, one observed South Bubbler now
12:09:00 <ynpvisitor102> And what were the ints, GT won't work up here
12:09:36 <ynpvisitor102> Oh
12:09:59 <ynpvisitor102> Well, time to go find lunch of some sort.
12:10:06 <JarnoO> a few seconds ago a splash fully contained within the cone
12:11:32 <JarnoO> it actually looked somewhat promising around 0630 or so, but that didn't last long
12:15:06 <JarnoO> afternoon Siegmund
12:15:28 <Siegmund> doesnt feel like it should be afternoon yet... eyes refuse to open all the way today
12:15:47 <Betty> lol
12:15:48 <JarnoO> sounds familiar here
12:15:55 <Betty> hi Siegmund
12:18:03 <Betty> doggie woke up
12:26:33 <Eric> ahh, deck posts set!
12:27:14 <Eric> wow 8+ h Grand yuck :-(
12:27:36 <Eric> I bet it was a booming start!
12:28:47 <Eric> ohh, even a minute in it was pretty huge.
12:31:33 <Eric> afternoon momie8x
12:31:34 <JarnoO> afternoon momie
12:32:03 <momie8x> is still my morning but hello everyone. :)
12:32:15 <JarnoO> good morning then :)
12:32:20 <Eric> I just use basin time for my greetings :-D
12:32:40 <Eric> People from all over the world here :-D
12:33:10 <momie8x> thats mountain time even though i'm in idaho i am on pacific time
12:34:28 <Eric> I love northern idaho...wanted to get a place in Wallace :-D
12:34:41 <momie8x> i was just sitting at my dining table reminiscing the moment of the 6.5 inidaho
12:35:45 <momie8x> we were at the dining table when it happened was very cool
12:36:23 <JarnoO> OF wants some screen time
12:36:23 <Eric> inidaho?
12:36:38 <Eric> It's shy today Jarno :-P
12:36:45 <momie8x> although my house foundation suffered widening of cracks
12:37:32 <momie8x> forgive my typos..im still on my 1rst cup of coffee
12:40:22 <Betty> OF
12:41:17 <ynpvisitor23> Who took control of teh camera?
12:41:54 <john> I did... saw no one was manning it...
12:41:59 <Eric> The OF monster!
12:42:00 <JarnoO> afternoon John
12:42:02 <Betty> camop I guess
12:42:02 <ynpvisitor23> I was
12:42:08 <Siegmund> dang, stepped away long enough to miss grand
12:42:12 <ynpvisitor23> You will now be on until 4pm.
12:42:31 <john> Hello JarnoO!
12:42:33 <Siegmund> oh - I had already missed it
12:42:40 <Eric> HI John
12:43:24 <Betty> hi DaveM, btw. How are you doing?
12:43:34 <john> Hello Eric! Are we going to see Great Fountain today? :)
12:43:44 <Eric> Not sure...got the zoom out?
12:44:08 <Eric> and the periscope up?
12:44:42 <Siegmund> was thinking mirror suspended from a balloon tethered above Midway
12:44:51 <Eric> That might work
12:44:55 <john> I just saw that we were in the OF window and no one was on... just jumped in for a minute.
12:45:03 <Eric> But technically that is a drone :-P
12:45:09 <Eric> right?
12:45:52 <JarnoO> wouldn't you need a very large mirror for that for it to be visible on cam?
12:46:05 <Eric> on this cam yes Jarno :-P
12:46:18 <Eric> with a really good telescope, maybe not
12:47:25 <Siegmund> that reflective stuff they make space blankets out of is light, can lift a goodly spread of it with a modest sized balloon. Bonus shade for the people parked at midway too
12:48:07 <Eric> reflective enough to see a geyser a couple miles away?
12:48:39 <Siegmund> will need a large defense department grant to investigate that question for you
12:48:51 <Eric> good call :-D
12:50:01 <Eric> lion up
12:50:10 <Eric> or trying
12:55:17 <ynpvisitor46> Water in bhi
12:55:28 <JarnoO> yay
12:55:49 <ynpvisitor46> Bhi 1255
12:56:16 <JarnoO> .
12:56:17 <JarnoO> .
12:56:18 <JarnoO> .
12:56:19 <JarnoO> .
12:56:20 <JarnoO> .
12:56:30 <ynpvisitor46> G here
12:57:02 <Eric> Hi Graham
12:57:09 <Eric> You at Indy?
12:57:44 <Eric> 20h since last aurum too
12:58:08 <Forestbewithyou> Thanks for the text
12:58:17 <Eric> Kitt's with you too!
12:58:19 <Eric> Nice
12:58:29 <Eric> Ryan there as well?
12:59:05 <Eric> Lion
12:59:14 <Eric> turn around :-D
12:59:43 <ynpvisitor46> Saw it
13:00:33 <ynpvisitor53> Kitt is in park?
13:01:06 <JarnoO> :bee:
13:01:18 <JarnoO> dual :)
13:02:40 <Eric> She posted BHI, so I assume so :-D
13:03:35 <ynpvisitor53> Too bad, she said she was staying home
13:04:00 <Eric> Guess she changed her mind
13:04:44 <Eric> I wonder if we will be in this view all afternoon due to disgruntled webcam union grievances?
13:05:35 <ynpvisitor63> IRL, I would pay a lot to have this view right now...
13:05:53 <ynpvisitor63> instead of another day staring at the walls of my house
13:05:54 <Betty> hope someone gets a shower there
13:06:05 <Eric> haha...me too 63 :-D
13:06:24 <ynpvisitor63> the crowd that ran down to Sulfide all got it I think
13:07:05 <Siegmund> doesnt seem to be a bad view
13:07:26 <Eric> No, great for right now...not so great when Grand erupts :-P
13:07:56 <Eric> But it probably won't erupt for another 8h anyway
13:08:12 <Eric> So really we would just missed Daisy and OF
13:08:18 <Eric> miss
13:08:36 <Eric> Thanks to whoever pointed to the hill!
13:09:00 <ynpvisitor53> Cam op labor issues?
13:09:32 <Eric> Sounded like it earlier..maybe they were resolved?
13:10:01 <Eric> But I haven't seen the cam move since then.
13:10:32 <ynpvisitor46> That was nice
13:10:40 <ynpvisitor53> Dave M day, I wonder what’s up
13:12:04 <Eric> Alright...have a good afternoon all, more work time!
13:12:47 <JarnoO> cya Eric
13:18:56 <JarnoO> Indicator: lead=4m39s, total=7m59s; Beehive: 5m24s
13:19:19 <JarnoO> one of the longer Beehives at last
13:39:30 <LindaG> Posted from YNP: (Heads Up) The Lone Star Fire increases to 1,500 acres. The Grand Loop Road between Old Faithful and West Thumb is open today after a closure yesterday due to dense smoke and a growing fire. The road may close at any time due to increased fire activity, smoke, and low visibility.
13:39:47 <Michael> I see I missed a few things. how was beehive?
13:39:57 <LindaG> Posted about 10 min ago
13:40:10 <JarnoO> afternoon Michael, Linda
13:40:27 <JarnoO> Beehive was a good one. Finally one which lasted over 5 minutes
13:40:30 <LindaG> HI Michael, JarnoO,
13:48:55 <LindaG> Bummer no text, or at least I'd didn't get one
13:49:33 <ynpvisitor63> FWIW, I got text
13:50:26 <ynpvisitor63> at 1257 MT
13:50:52 <LindaG> I take it back there was one. My bad 😊
13:51:46 <ynpvisitor69> Fire looks to have grown a lot to tge east
13:52:16 <ynpvisitor69> Mug runoff looks so dry
13:53:09 <ynpvisitor69> Just had another event cycle... going to enter
13:58:57 <ynpvisitor69> Might need a memorial service for mugwump
13:59:21 <LindaG> ynpvisitor69, 😕 oh dear
13:59:49 <ynpvisitor69> Pool looks lower than yesterday
14:00:39 <LindaG> Well it had a good run 😉
14:02:08 <JarnoO> Three Sisters apparantly can drain as far as every vent having their own separate pool
14:03:29 <JarnoO> roar
14:04:44 <JarnoO> also OF time, but no idea if there's a camop on cam after the kerfuffle earlier
14:05:16 <LindaG> JarnoO, what kerfuffle?
14:06:17 <JarnoO> it happened just before the 1239 OF, I'd read the logs for that before I start pointing fingers
14:06:25 <ynpvisitor69> Is Kerfufle a geyser?
14:06:28 <LindaG> JarnoO, ok
14:07:08 <JarnoO> #69, it isn't :)
14:07:50 <Siegmund> give it a year or two, we may find a place to put the name
14:08:24 <JarnoO> how about "Kerfuffle" for MYR-1? Stays in the spirit of Mugwump :)
14:09:02 <JarnoO> per Wiktionary: (chiefly Britain, informal) A disorderly outburst, disturbance, commotion, or tumult.
14:16:27 <Betty> seems smoke cleared a bit
14:23:19 <Betty> OF
14:29:59 <JarnoO> hi Kevin
14:30:43 <Kevin L. I-15> Hi
14:32:48 <Betty> hi Kevin
14:33:01 <Kevin L. I-15> Hi Craig’s truck.
14:33:08 <Betty> Craig is on Mug watch
14:33:31 <Betty> and SteveO?
14:33:51 <Kevin L. I-15> I made friends with Craig’s truck when I was there.
14:34:12 <Betty> how that?
14:35:49 <Kevin L. I-15> I went by and said hi to it.
14:36:25 <Betty> funny
14:36:33 <ynpvisitor69> My truck said it was happy to meet you
14:36:59 <ynpvisitor69> Shhhhh, steveo is napping
14:37:10 <Betty> yeah, every truck wants to bee friends with Kevin
14:39:09 <JarnoO> Aurum
14:39:09 <JarnoO> .
14:39:10 <JarnoO> .
14:39:11 <JarnoO> .
14:39:56 <Betty> whooo
14:40:03 <ynpvisitor69> Aurum
14:41:03 <momie8x> this is the area where they had to do repairs to the board walk due to new activity?
14:42:32 <JarnoO> between Sponge and Doublet - as far as I know they only opened the boardwalk to allow better monitoring and closed it later as activity had decreased
14:46:38 <ynpvisitor333> good dose of smoke for the gazers today
14:53:40 <Betty> time for sleep. Enjoy the rest of your sunday
14:53:54 <JarnoO> cya Betty
14:59:25 <LindaG> Oh missed aurum
14:59:39 <LindaG> But hey there is a replay
14:59:45 <JarnoO> :)
15:00:34 <JarnoO> Giantess runoff is really dark gray. I like it :)
15:04:28 <Eric> Hey all
15:04:36 <JarnoO> hi again Eric
15:04:39 <Eric> :-D
15:04:46 <Eric> Done mowing and weeding :-D
15:05:00 <Eric> Back for my Geyser break
15:07:11 <Eric> Has the cam moved since the Great camop revolution of 1300?
15:07:18 <JarnoO> it has
15:07:22 <Eric> woohoo
15:07:42 <Eric> whoever is doing it, thanks :heart::heart:
15:08:00 <LindaG> 😊
15:09:02 <Eric> Linda for Cam Operator of the Year award :-D
15:09:09 <Eric> Daisy
15:09:40 <LindaG> Eric, not on, but I'll take the award lol
15:09:51 <Eric> ohh :-D
15:09:58 <Eric> You still get my vote Linda

15:10:21 <LindaG> Eric, thx 😄
15:10:25 <momie8x> ty
15:11:16 <Eric> Since it's an imaginary award I made up, I will send you the imaginary trophy through our now imaginary post office :-P
15:13:04 <LindaG> Eric, oh I was hoping there was a cash award lol
15:13:44 <LindaG> Imaginary of course 😄
15:14:03 <Eric> oh yes, I forgot the imaginary million dollar cash award :-P
15:14:09 <Eric> All yours!
15:14:59 <LindaG> Yes! I'm in the imaginary money!
15:15:05 <Eric> :-D
15:15:20 <Eric> I see Graham has found his afternoon napping spot down near the river :-D
15:33:04 <Eric> Wow...Graham posted a pic on FB of the fire from the cabins...that looks horrible!
15:35:38 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy boiling on Giantess
15:35:46 <LindaG> JarnoO, bye
15:37:17 <LindaG> Eric, doesnt look like healthy breathing
15:38:07 <Eric> Bye Jarno
15:38:26 <Eric> No, but apparently they could see flames from the basin yesterday!
15:38:39 <LindaG> Eric, woah
15:42:45 <Eric> Hopefully rain comes in as expected tomorrow and knocks the fire down a bunch
16:24:31 <ynpvisitor56> Any more stuff from Giantess?
16:26:27 <LindaG> Full of water and some runoff with some rim boils
16:26:59 <ynpvisitor56> Any N rim?
16:27:18 <ynpvisitor29> Runoff mats looking dead
16:27:20 <ynpvisitor56> LindaG, hi
16:27:32 <LindaG> ynpvisitor56, hi
16:27:50 <LindaG> The bacteria is reestablishing slowly
16:28:02 <ynpvisitor56> I'd be happy if they were N rim and well susraimed
16:28:07 <ynpvisitor56> Sustaimed
16:28:12 <ynpvisitor56> Sustained
16:28:42 <LindaG> Inhaventbseen rim boils but jarno has said there are
16:28:57 <LindaG> *I havent seen
16:29:07 <ynpvisitor56> Is JO still here?
16:29:17 <LindaG> He left
16:29:36 <ynpvisitor56> :thumbsup:
16:29:49 <LindaG> The runoff area to right is slowly turning orange
16:31:19 <ynpvisitor3> Last OF post should be WC
16:34:42 <LindaG> Is everyone at SB today?
16:35:17 <ynpvisitor3> I don't think many are there based on the report this Am
16:44:52 <momie8x> wow, what were them 3 people up on the hillside up to?
16:45:16 <LindaG> Oh oi missed it
16:45:25 <momie8x> i don't think they were on a designated path
16:45:28 <LindaG> What were they doing?
16:45:35 <LindaG> Oh
16:46:11 <ynpvisitor23> they were on the path to the OF overlook above Geyser Hill..
16:46:25 <momie8x> up on the hill above old faithful walking above a rocky area, came out of the woods above
17:00:49 <ynpvisitor4> Is Forest here??
17:02:32 <ynpvisitor4> Korben here, currently watching the Williams fork, and Cameron peak fire from my campsite, insane
17:03:18 <ynpvisitor4> 46K acres of fire, all billowing over the mountains
17:04:47 <Siegmund> afternoon satellite pass over the lone star fire is out
17:05:05 <Siegmund> has mostly moved SE, only a little NE
17:05:21 <Siegmund> closest approach to the road is about 3/4mi south of Scaup Lake
17:05:50 <Siegmund> but has crossed the headwaters of Shoshone Creek and climbing the Cement Hills, more or less toward 8R3 and the patrol cabin
17:06:26 <Siegmund> I'd be mildly surprised if it burned downhill to the cabin and campsites but not impossible if it isnt well doused tomorrow
17:07:01 <LindaG> 😕
17:08:13 <Siegmund> has not crossed any trail yet - crossed the creek about 3 miles west of where the trail is alongside it
17:08:19 <Siegmund> make that east
17:08:29 <ynpvisitor29> Sunny and 79 degrees now - incredible that snow is predicted by late tomorrow.
17:09:05 <ynpvisitor29> :daisy:
17:09:05 <LindaG> Daisy
17:16:20 <ynpvisitor79> I don't enjoy seeing the park burn
17:41:53 <ynpvisitor79> Excellent!
18:02:26 <SantaFe108> the sky is apocalyptic orange and its sprinkling ashes here
18:03:43 <ynpvisitor79> Watchout for 4 guys on horseback
18:22:33 <ynpvisitor27> how hot is it SantaFe108?
18:28:25 <ynpvisitor79> Good looking pooch
18:33:54 <LindaG> SantaFe108, what fire is by you?
18:54:41 <LindaG> Nice aurum splash
18:54:56 <LindaG> Wow no one on BW
18:55:22 <LindaG> Hi camop
18:55:44 <ynpvisitor79> Hey Linda
19:01:14 <LindaG> OF and daisy are going to compete
19:01:37 <ynpvisitor79> & Riverside & Aurum
19:08:51 <LindaG> OF ie
19:12:54 <Eric> daisy
19:14:43 <Eric> dramatic sunset with the smoke
19:16:26 <LindaG> I hope SantaFe108 is ok
19:17:31 <Eric> Was a fire near him?
19:17:59 <ynpvisitor79> Much better Riverside start than I thought we would get.
19:18:01 <LindaG> Yes look above. I think hes in California
19:41:05 <LindaG> Hmmmm aurum at 5 hrs...I wonder if we'll get lucky 😊
19:43:53 <Kevin L™️ > No you won’t.
19:44:27 <ynpvisitor79> :(
19:44:41 <LindaG> I knew the mention of aurum would bring you forth 😉
19:44:51 <ynpvisitor22> Haha
19:45:26 <LindaG> Kevin L™️ 🌲, is it still having problems?
19:49:47 <LindaG> Wel we lost him 😃

19:58:54 <LindaG> Wow, not good
20:01:18 <Kevin L™️ > Didn’t they tell you not to play with matches?
20:02:40 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™️ 🌲, tell the people at Oak Glen, this is their 2nd fire this summer
20:03:21 <Kevin L™️ > They must like BBQ
20:03:40 <SantaFe108> the smoke plume was very visible from the museum
20:12:17 <Kevin L™️ > Is it hot there SantaFe?
20:12:56 <SantaFe108> was hot idk what it is let me check
20:13:06 <SantaFe108> its 102 rightr now
20:13:40 <LindaG> That's warm
20:14:40 <Kevin L™️ > That is toasty.
20:15:03 <SantaFe108> I was at the musuem yesterday and it was 115
20:19:34 <Kevin L™️ > Bet you are glad you weren’t laying rail.
20:20:07 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™️ 🌲, thats why we work in midnight :D
20:23:27 <Kevin L™️ > They do that at our museum too
20:25:05 <LindaG> That's crazy
20:25:48 <SantaFe108> right now they're working on one of the hollywood card
20:25:49 <SantaFe108> cars*
20:27:22 <Kevin L™️ > That will be fun.
20:27:44 <SantaFe108> our operations teacher said he hit that car once while driving another streetcar
20:27:54 <SantaFe108> flattened its nose and broke off the headlight
20:28:19 <Kevin L™️ > Ouch!
20:28:46 <SantaFe108> lots of accident stories he told
20:29:17 <SantaFe108> I forgot what they're working on right now I think it's the air brakes
20:29:56 <Kevin L™️ > When you drive something like that on the street it is bound to happen.
20:31:40 <SantaFe108> I think he said that somebody put grease all over the rails instead of where they were told and they slipped into the next streetcar
20:33:08 <Kevin L™️ > Bet that felt strange.
20:35:26 <SantaFe108> the moment you realize your brakes don't work
20:38:02 <Kevin L™️ > Boo. Bad Knight.
20:38:35 <LindaG> 😕
