05:52:33 <Look> Of
06:20:08 <Look> G looks hot, boiling
06:32:27 <KorbenC> wow, I would not be at all suprised if G went today
06:32:29 <KorbenC> boiling
06:32:38 <Forestbewithyou> Morning Korben!
06:32:50 <Look> KorbenC, morning its linda
06:32:56 <Look> Forestbewithyou, hi
06:33:00 <KorbenC> Hi Linda, Forest
06:33:11 <Look> KorbenC, I was thinking the same thing
06:33:26 <Look> But it is cold
06:35:37 <KorbenC> Is JO here, becuase in my 5 years of watching hurricanes I have never seen a disturbance form above africa moving into africa :P
06:36:21 <Forestbewithyou> Uhh what Korben
06:36:27 <Forestbewithyou> Also I forgot to say... Morning Linda
06:36:31 <Look> Havent seen him, yet
06:36:37 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
06:36:38 <KorbenC> Hi Jarno
06:36:43 <Forestbewithyou> He has been summoned sorta
06:36:43 <JarnoO> wow... Giantess looks active, even taking steam into consideration
06:36:58 <KorbenC> Jarno, yeah, lots of boiling episodes
06:37:04 <Forestbewithyou> which disturbance is it Korben?
06:37:04 <Look> JarnoO, it does
06:37:07 <JarnoO> Korben, you mean #3?
06:37:40 <KorbenC> yeah, I might be wrong but ive not seen one up there :P
06:37:48 <KorbenC> and its not remnants of Paulette either
06:38:00 <Forestbewithyou> Oh I see it
06:39:25 <KorbenC> but it does seem that the Atlantic (the true Atlantic not gulf and Caribbean) is just going to stay conductive for long and slow development
06:39:43 <JarnoO> Korben, it's the circle of li... disturbances :)
06:39:59 <KorbenC> lol
06:41:15 <Orbi> About what time does the SB temp logger upload each day?
06:41:48 <KorbenC> what is it now, 0900? But I am probably wrong
06:42:24 <JarnoO> Good question. Yesterday it was around 0600 MST, with data points to 0500 MST
06:42:41 <KorbenC> wow yeah, I was way off :)
06:43:23 <JarnoO> so around 0700 MDT there should be new data. Unless the whole system fails again and they pick a new upload time :P
06:43:37 <Orbi> Ty
06:45:06 <Grotto> Typing this so I can see on the map where Rubble is.
06:46:14 <Grotto> We dont like Rubble.
06:47:29 <JarnoO> oh c'mon fog bank. Go away... please?
06:52:08 <KorbenC> JarnoO, you jinxed it :)
06:52:28 <Kat> This looks fun - Not!
06:52:48 <JarnoO> at least we can still see steam above the fog, so not all bad
06:53:43 <JarnoO> new logger data
06:53:59 <JarnoO> well... for Constant/Whirligig that is
06:55:07 <Look> Looks like G steam is growing
06:55:27 <JarnoO> and Opalescent, Porkchop, Gray Lakes, Tantalus Creek and Vixen Soil. Nothing from Nuphar and Echinus
06:55:36 <JarnoO> and Steamboat's data just popped in as well
06:56:08 <JarnoO> water temperature reached Ā±30Ā°C just after 0300 MST
06:59:24 <Kat> Wow!
06:59:40 <Kat> Clouds in the basin!
07:03:48 <Look> Kat, hi
07:04:20 <Look> This is take the car in day. Hope it's not terminal.
07:06:24 <Kat> Hi Look,
07:11:02 <Look> Kat, oh its linda
07:11:29 <Kat> Look, I knew that haha
07:11:33 <LindaG> Pretty view
07:11:46 <LindaG> Kat, šŸ˜Š
07:12:09 <Kat> Did you have a good day yesterday? Go birding?
07:14:10 <LindaG> Yup had good day, but no birding
07:16:57 <Kat> Definitely fogged in :)
07:19:23 <LindaG> Oh my goodness
07:20:00 <Grotto> I am sure Giantess is in there.
07:20:11 <Kat> I could take a nap! Hahaha
07:20:29 <Grotto> The video of the start is astounding.
07:20:42 <Kat> G was putting out some nice steam earlier but couldn't see
07:21:35 <LindaG> Kat, when I saw before fog it looked hot and boiling
07:21:58 <KorbenC> Wow, I thought that if I left the fog would leave, I guess not
07:22:14 <LindaG> Kat,, maybe it's ready again just for you
07:22:39 <Kat> Check it out!
07:22:52 <LindaG> Yup
07:23:04 <LindaG> Its rising
07:23:42 <Kat> Don't know if anyone is in basin could be at SB
07:23:49 <LindaG> I lost track of what's what
07:25:16 <LindaG> Yikes good luck gotta go, looks calmer now
07:25:30 <JarnoO> cya Linda
07:25:30 <Kat> See you soon!
07:25:41 <KorbenC> LindaG, bye!
07:25:56 <Kat> Morning JarnoO and Korben
07:25:57 <LindaG> What do you do in your spare time? Why I stare at steam. Lol
07:26:06 <KorbenC> Kat, hi
07:26:09 <Kat> Hahahahaha
07:26:47 <LindaG> šŸ˜ŠšŸ‘‹
07:28:01 <222> Looks like fog to me
07:28:26 <Kat> A bit of steam and fog
07:33:50 <KorbenC> Well, I should probably get going to school.
07:34:05 <Kat> Have a good one!
07:34:43 <KorbenC> Save Giantess for me this afternoon :)
07:37:01 <Kat> See what I can do! :)
07:53:26 <Forestbewithyou> WElp I am off to school as well
07:53:28 <Forestbewithyou> be back later
07:53:34 <JarnoO> cya Forest
07:53:40 <Forestbewithyou> audios
07:56:09 <Kat> Forestbewithyou, Bye
08:21:51 <JarnoO> Riverside
08:30:24 <Michael> Not a lot of predictions (or even double intervals) to work with this morning.
08:32:53 <Kat> Very fogged in the AM
08:34:24 <JarnoO> Dep trying things
08:34:48 <Kat> Trying :)
08:34:52 <Michael> At least we'll get the moon back in a week or so.
08:35:43 <Kat> That would be nice
08:36:14 <Kat> Looks like haze and smoke
08:42:59 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
08:43:10 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi
08:43:18 <SantaFe108> hi kevin
08:43:44 <Michael> Hi Kevin
08:43:54 <Mike J> It's a hokey smaze.
08:44:28 <Mike J> You put your left spark in, you take your left spark out, you put your left spark in and shake the smoke all about.
08:44:28 <sparekitty> it's smokey in much of Montana this/last week.
08:45:45 <Grotto> Smoketember
08:45:49 <Mike J> Things finally cleared up here in Phx, just in time for heat to raise and the ozone level to go unhealthy.
08:46:01 <Mike J> Good title Grotto
08:46:37 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We have 2 more days showing over 100Ā° but going down after that!
08:47:24 <Mike J> We always run a little hotter Kevin. No days below 100 in the 7-day forecast.
08:49:38 <Eric> Morning
08:50:14 <JarnoO> morning Eric, Graham
08:50:27 <Eric> Hi Jarno
08:50:37 <Michael> Looks like "normal" in PHX dips below 100 on September 18.
08:50:56 <Michael> Morning Eric and G.
08:51:07 <Eric> Hi Michael
08:52:27 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I am just looking forward to the Rainbow Canyon trips.
08:57:32 <Mike J> True Michael. But normal hasn't applied here for quite a while. (I guess that's true everywhere.)
08:57:57 <Kat> Of 0852
08:59:03 <JarnoO> 0852:00 to be precise
08:59:51 <Kat> OK 0852:00
09:00:49 <Kat> :p
09:01:05 <JarnoO> looks like Rocket
09:02:30 <Michael> I could believe it. That was a pretty distinct steam plume.
09:02:53 <JarnoO> and there's Bulger
09:03:37 <JarnoO> Bulger minor
09:06:13 <JarnoO> good steam above Giantess
09:08:29 <JarnoO> that's promising
09:08:38 <JarnoO> also looked like Dome was trying something
09:09:03 <JarnoO> guess not the for Dome
09:17:08 <JarnoO> morning kc
09:26:26 <Him!> JarnoO, do you know anywhere that I can read about Giantess? Sput Article maybe?
09:27:32 <JarnoO> aside from the Geysers of Yellowstone there's also GOSA Transactions 6, of which the first article is an analysis of Giantess' behavior
09:27:58 <KorbenC> sorry, I was reading thorugh yesterdays chat logs and had too :)
09:28:51 <JarnoO> okay... okay... Duly noted. Payback will be sweet. Some day
09:29:21 <KorbenC> haha, you still have to get me back for the "Why do you make OF getvideos?"
09:29:31 <Michael> But that article doesn't really give enough information to make predictions... :)
09:29:45 <JarnoO> I'm letting it stack, Korben >:D
09:29:54 <KorbenC> haha
09:30:14 <JarnoO> >:ā…®
09:30:43 <KorbenC> Your gonna find me in YNP and shove me into Giantess ;) or Sawmill :P
09:31:05 <KorbenC> Lots of forced steam, and very steamy runoff though right now.
09:32:15 <Eric> Coop you are cruel
09:32:26 <Kat> Predictions on the board!
09:32:29 <KorbenC> Eric, haha, at least I try to be funny with it :)
09:32:50 <KorbenC> oh, he will get me back some day, I am sure of it :D
09:34:10 <KorbenC> Just botted SWARM up for the interval, and its already breaking on me :)
09:34:24 <Eric> Will be interesting to see what kind of mode we are in for Giantess....I hope it's Mode 3 :-D
09:34:44 <KorbenC> Giantess looks really good, lots of runoff
09:35:29 <Eric> I am really curious to see YFT when we get another Giantess
09:35:56 <Eric> Wish Seismo was closer to Giantess and more isolated.
09:38:47 <Mike J> I remember reading a while ago about the geyser hill wave (or something like that.) Seems I also remember that being somewhat discouraged on this discussion board. But, in those discussions, was there any comments about its effect on Giantess (assuming it was a real thing.)
09:39:59 <JarnoO> the first Giantess did erupt while LS was ie
09:40:14 <Eric> haha
09:41:34 <JarnoO> I do still think some regular change takes place in geysers around the time of a wave, with LS being the example of that, but that perhaps it has assumed a different shape or is fairly disorganized
09:41:38 <Michael> I never warmed up to the Geyser Hill Wave. IIRC, it claimed a window of opportunity a few days on either side of Little Squirt/SMAX. But it's been years since I read TSB's article.
09:42:21 <JarnoO> at least perhaps not in the "classic" form
09:42:27 <Eric> Wow...I didn't realize how consistent LS intervals where until now.
09:42:43 <Mike J> Thanks Michael. I know that, even at the time, there was some question. But, with Giantess taking a stroll through the hill, I may try to see what I can find.
09:42:47 <Michael> Do some of the past Giantess eruptions in GeyserTimes have a seismogram attached?
09:43:21 <Forestbewithyou> Hi all
09:43:43 <Eric> Not that I know of Michael, but I would love to see them if someone finds them.
09:44:47 <Eric> You were serious about LS and Giantess...any links to this WAVE theory?
09:45:41 <Eric> Is it in Transactions 6 too :-P
09:46:08 <JarnoO> I'll have to do some reading myself if Transactions containing anything about the wave are up for download
09:47:35 <Eric> Transactions #4
09:48:46 <Mike J> I've got "The Geyser Hill Wave in 2002" in Transactions VII.
09:48:51 <Eric> Evidence for the Geyser Hill Wave and Diurnal Effects on Geyser Hill During the 1980s
09:49:11 <Eric> Also Graphical and Interpretive Descriptions of the Geyser Hill Wave
09:53:00 <Kat> Smoke looks bad
10:00:22 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> There is that Perry Mason music again.
10:00:41 <Kat> I hear it! Cam being released!
10:00:59 <Kat> Have a good afternoon!
10:01:08 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Youn too.
10:01:10 <SantaFe108> thanks kat
10:01:17 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Kat
10:01:30 <Eric> Thanks and bye Kat
10:01:40 <Kat> SantaFe108, all are welcome - weird AM with the fog and smoke
10:01:41 <SantaFe108> cya kat
10:02:02 <Kat> bbl - and then driving for Graham tomorrow
10:02:57 <Kat> It's been like a full-time job lately ! But I love it!
10:03:31 <Kat> oh and the pay stinks! LOL
10:03:35 <SantaFe108> :(
10:04:03 <SantaFe108> employee fell off the Orlando Starflyer from 225' up
10:04:09 <Eric> I love this comment on Yellowstone Insider: "Does anyone know where I go to see steamboat geyser predicted time to erupt? I know we talked to a ranger this summer and he gave us a website that would give like 40 min notice before it erupted. Now we canā€™t remember that website!! Thanks so much!"
10:04:20 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Don't they pay you double on Tuesday Kat?
10:04:32 <SantaFe108> Eric,:lol::lol::lol:
10:04:38 <SantaFe108> lmao
10:04:44 <Eric> If anyone has that website address, please share :-D
10:04:49 <Kat> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, yeah - just like you KevinL
10:06:03 <SantaFe108> I have a prediction, it will erupt at āˆž:āˆž Ā± āˆž
10:06:14 <Kat> Who gets a 40 minute notice on SB -Hahaha
10:06:23 <Kat> SantaFe108, lol
10:06:48 <SantaFe108> wait you guys don't get a phone call from Mr. Yellowstone? he told me SB will erupt!
10:07:10 <Kat> SantaFe108, I need his number please
10:08:14 <Grotto> That belief by visitors is causing some major headaches in Norris.
10:08:34 <Eric> Katie has the patients of a saint on YIH :-P
10:08:41 <Kat> SantaFe108, I love sprinkler - i was so happy when I first saw it
10:08:56 <SantaFe108> Kat, glad to hear :)
10:09:18 <SantaFe108> tourists seem suprised when unpredictable geyser turns out to be unpredictable
10:09:34 <Eric> or patience :-P
10:09:49 <Grotto> Visitors arrive with "predictions" and get very upset when it doesn't erupt during that prediction. More often than not they take it out on the Norris regulars.
10:10:02 <Forestbewithyou> Funny story... 9/10 times we walked past Sprinkler and it was going my mom asked me "what is that geyser" and every time I would reply "for the ____ time its sprinkler" It became a running joke this year
10:10:14 <SantaFe108> Forestbewithyou, Sprinkler, geyser of the year :)
10:10:27 <Eric> Club at batons to the head Grotto?
10:10:44 <SantaFe108> tourists act surprised when they can't see other geysers besides OF when their trip plans have 1 hour at UGB then 10 hours at grand prismatic
10:10:51 <Grotto> I could be wrong but I think that's how we get banned from Yellowstone.
10:11:03 <Eric> No I meant them to you :-P
10:11:39 <Eric> No, I get it...I have had my share of Norris time.
10:11:52 <SantaFe108> I got lucky with my SB
10:11:55 <Eric> Thankfully most of it early on
10:12:02 <Grotto> I think that would be easier to manage.
10:12:11 <Eric> People had not had time to make up crap about SB predictions.
10:12:43 <Eric> Pump!
10:13:03 <Eric> I find it amazing how adamant people are about their ignorance too
10:13:05 <Grotto> Somehow the notes on GT are being interpreted as predictions. And I think some of the stuff we talk about here was getting picked up as predictions for the general public to follow.
10:13:31 <SantaFe108> seems to happen alot :p
10:13:38 <Grotto> Wow, Giantess looks hot today.
10:14:38 <Grotto> Regardless of how they get the info, they show up at Noprris upset that the info was wrong.
10:15:20 <Eric> Yep, can't solve stupid.
10:15:39 <SantaFe108> and sometimes they get angry if you tell them "I don't know"
10:15:51 <Grotto> I do know that the park rangers recommend GT to visitors to know whats going on with geysers.
10:16:07 <Grotto> GT isn't set up for that.
10:16:21 <Eric> Yep, which is fine for many people.
10:16:24 <SantaFe108> suprised they don't recommend their own yellowstone app?
10:16:46 <Grotto> SantaFe108, my personal favorite is "How long have you been sitting here?" it's most often a setup to be made fun of.
10:17:10 <Eric> That question gets asked about every 5m
10:17:20 <SantaFe108> Grotto, oof hits hard
10:17:21 <Eric> Arty
10:17:25 <Eric> ie
10:18:04 <Grotto> It is a bit nicer at Decker. Then they start off with "Are you watching for Steamboat?" or "What are you waiting for?" which allows the discussion to take a very different path.
10:19:09 <Eric> That is good...some people actually do stand and listen to the conversations and then ask meaningful questions. It happens.
10:19:57 <Eric> If someone doesn't have the patience to stand and watch for a bit before asking a question, I don't really have the patience to answer questions is my general rule.
10:20:00 <Grotto> It is not the guests' fault, but comments like "Oh wow he's gonna be here when it goes!" when they see you with a folding chair and a book get kind of rough when you've been there for 30+hrs and you know very well you may not see it.
10:20:14 <Volcanoverse> like, is it smoke? *hideing*^^
10:20:44 <Eric> Meh, I just ignored 60% of the people talking.
10:21:29 <Grotto> Honestly I don't correct things like that. If someone says "smoke" I just respond to their question and use the word "steam". They get the jist and its much gentler on both parties.
10:23:25 <Volcanoverse> thats true. well at the end you can get just tired of that for sure.
10:24:42 <Grotto> Indeed. The Norris-o-philes deal with a lot while they are there. My hat is off to them.
10:25:07 <Grotto> It's everyone's personal choice - but I wonder if SB will ever not be worth it.
10:25:50 <Eric> The Norris people sit up against the railing where it's hard to get to them. They are pretty well insulated and let the back of the pack take the brunt.
10:25:56 <Volcanoverse> well i was never there, but i know at least all the default questions from another place. might be more grounded if i could see it in person :)
10:26:10 <SantaFe108> next time I go to ynp I might skip even trying to see SB since every time I go I only get 4 hours at UGB and miss everything
10:26:30 <Eric> If it's in window...go SF
10:26:41 <Eric> It is still the tallest active geyser in the world
10:26:57 <SantaFe108> true
10:27:04 <Grotto> Eric, don't forget that they often spend time there when it is not in window to check up on activity.
10:27:24 <SantaFe108> people are shocked when they hear ive never seen Daisy Riverside Castle, BH, etc.
10:27:26 <Grotto> They are usually alone for that. No pack to take the brunt.
10:27:44 <Eric> Yes, but in that case they don't have chairs and aren't bothered as much.
10:28:12 <Grotto> After 3 years I am sure it is getting tiring.
10:28:21 <Eric> Anyway, I know they get lots of chat...but I would switch places with them in an instant if I could :-P
10:28:41 <Eric> Small price
10:29:28 <Grotto> To each their own. I think they are paying a fairly big price, personally.
10:29:44 <Eric> Well, that is for them to weigh, not me
10:31:23 <SantaFe108> hello linda
10:31:45 <LindaG> SantaFe108, hi
10:31:51 <LindaG> Hi all
10:31:55 <Mario> Beehive sure seems to be slowly lengthening its intervals lately
10:31:56 <Eric> Hi Linda
10:31:57 <Mario> Hi Linda
10:32:07 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi
10:32:16 <Eric> Hi Mario
10:32:18 <LindaG> šŸ‘‹
10:32:26 <Eric> 3d doesn't seem slow to me!
10:32:26 <Mario> Hey Eric
10:32:38 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
10:33:01 <Mario> rapidly lengthening... :(
10:33:56 <LindaG> Hi Forestbewithyou, Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, Mario, Eric,
10:37:17 <Michael> Eric, I sent my Giantess seismogram screenshot collection to the listserv.
10:37:19 <SantaFe108> nice one OF
10:39:19 <Eric> I saw that Michael, thanks.
10:39:45 <Eric> One point, the seismograph has been pretty much broken for the last year, not a calibration issue.
10:39:48 <KorbenC> Michael, I didnt know you went to Princeton :D
10:45:48 <KorbenC> I guess I should probably put YFT up on SWARM
10:47:38 <Eric> Still much less smoke in the UGB then here!
10:47:58 <Michael> Yes, I even have the T-shirt somewhere. (And a lifetime craving for Hoagie Haven)
10:48:54 <SantaFe108> hi janro
10:49:17 <Eric> 7 dead and 60 people unaccounted for in Oregon fires so far :-(
10:49:31 <Eric> Morning Jimbo :-P
10:50:58 <Forestbewithyou> Lunch time
10:51:57 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Linda & SantaFe, UP derailment caught on cam at 0749. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNvU59Ld8aA&ab_channel=VirtualRailfan
10:52:05 <Yep I'm Nep> Hello Eric.
10:52:16 <KorbenC> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, what aobut me!? :P
10:52:22 <Michael> Here too. And I should sneak in a tour of the weeds in the yard too.
10:52:29 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> You too Korben.
10:52:57 <KorbenC> WOW
10:53:00 <KorbenC> thats crazy
10:53:57 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We ended up spending about $5000 on the Zion property to clean out fire hazards this year. Felt that was better than a fire.
10:54:15 <Eric> holy crumoly
10:54:16 <KorbenC> The cars just bounce left and right, and it started smoking, just insane.
10:54:36 <Eric> That could have been way worse!
10:54:57 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Yes. Good thing it was going so slow.
10:55:26 <KorbenC> yeah, that would be alot worse if it was moving 70MPH or something like that
10:55:39 <SantaFe108> jesus christ kevin
10:56:27 <SantaFe108> that railfan mustve been surprised
10:56:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I would say so.
10:57:10 <KorbenC> FLOWER!
10:57:12 <Eric> That engine was shoving gravel
10:57:16 <Eric> margarita
10:57:38 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I was riding a sheetrock train once and we put 250,000 pounds of sheetrock on the ground. It was strange.
10:57:41 <SantaFe108> gravel margarita sounds great
10:58:19 <SantaFe108> good job :daisy:
10:59:53 <Eric> Will be kind of cool to have a front row seat to watch them lift the engines off that bridge!
11:00:10 <Eric> That is going to take a really, really big crane or two
11:01:41 <SantaFe108> grand should be nice
11:04:10 <SantaFe108> bh looks healthier
11:04:37 <LindaG> Splash
11:05:10 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Wish we had someone feeding Turban times.
11:05:39 <LindaG> Where'd they all go?
11:05:57 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Probably to the boat.
11:06:14 <ynpvisitor> No feeding the wild things.
11:12:08 <KorbenC> Hopefully that are all only sentanced to one or two days in SB prison this time :D
11:14:01 <KorbenC> Giantess runoff is very dark again
11:14:22 <JarnoO> as it was yesterday and the afternoon ereyesterday
11:15:26 <Eric> Wow...serious backup heading into the park from West
11:15:49 <SantaFe108> wow thats alot of people
11:16:02 <Eric> Ya, you don't usually see a backup there
11:16:04 <KorbenC> JarnoO, to me it looks even darker tan yesterday today
11:16:34 <SantaFe108> usually heading into park cam is empty
11:16:52 <Eric> Is it unusual for trains to derail on straight aways like that one?
11:16:57 <JarnoO> that might be because much less sunlight is reaching the surface. Though I wouldn't exclude more activity this morning. It was quite active before the wind strengthened
11:17:20 <Eric> or where they switching tracks and got hung up?
11:17:40 <KorbenC> JarnoO, :thumbsup: maybe the wind will calm down afternoon :)
11:17:45 <KorbenC> down in the afternoon*
11:18:01 <SantaFe108> trains can derail anywhere anytime
11:18:09 <KorbenC> Ive progressed to stage 4 Lindavitis, I guess just start leaving words out of sentances now :D
11:18:22 <KorbenC> I guess I will just start*
11:18:43 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Probably was a track defect Eric. It is double tracked so it may have derailed on a crossover switch
11:19:15 <JarnoO> I'm hoping more on some periods of quiet between sustained winds. That's also what happened with the previous Giantess. That one went when the wind calmed down a tad before it increased again
11:19:30 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
11:19:53 <KorbenC> Maybe we will get some form of bombogenesis :)
11:20:15 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We have an e time on Grand now. Pushing 7 hours
11:21:52 <JarnoO> sigh... today the temperature reached a record 86Ā°F for this month (it had never become any higher than that in the entire history of accurate measurements in September). Of course my room responds with 77Ā°F temperatures, because why not. :/
11:22:24 <KorbenC> is your Airco on?
11:22:31 <JarnoO> yep
11:22:38 <KorbenC> wow
11:22:46 <SantaFe108> thank god for AC
11:23:09 <KorbenC> maybe you need 2 aircos? :P
11:23:27 <JarnoO> probably am going to let it run overnight so that it cools some
11:23:42 <JarnoO> Korben, I doubt the circuit breaker would like that
11:24:16 <KorbenC> you could put a bunch of freon in your room ;)
11:24:42 <JarnoO> no thanks
11:24:45 <JarnoO> morning Jeff
11:24:54 <SantaFe108> hi Jfef
11:24:57 <KorbenC> Hi Jeff
11:24:57 <Jeff> Hey JarnoO
11:25:05 <Jeff> Hi santafe
11:25:13 <KorbenC> sorry you had to get home so quick :(
11:26:03 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Jeff
11:26:13 <SantaFe108> hi For
11:26:17 <SantaFe108> est
11:28:30 <JarnoO> the breaker is currently at Ā±6.5A of its maximum rated 16A, and that's only my room. Another airco would mean I'd be pushing it to Ā±11A for the entire group my room is on and I have no idea what else is running on said breaker. And I don't want any shortcuts, either
11:29:57 <Eric> Thanks Kevin...now I am stuck watching another live cam feed :-P
11:30:40 <Eric> wow...almost 3k people watching that cam feed!
11:32:11 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> A derail on a cam like that is like a Giantess on this cam.
11:32:13 <Forestbewithyou> Well we almost had that many people watching when giantess erupted for the first time :p
11:33:28 <JarnoO> Grand
11:33:29 <KorbenC> boom
11:33:29 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Yea!
11:33:59 <Forestbewithyou> Nice
11:43:02 <Eric> Will be interesting to see them lift those engines!
11:45:21 <JarnoO> b1 done
11:46:16 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, what derailed?
11:46:33 <SantaFe108> train on kansas city santa fe jct
11:46:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> UP train
11:46:45 <LindaG> Ah
11:46:59 <Forestbewithyou> alrighty time to head out to class. Talk to you all kater
11:47:02 <Forestbewithyou> later
11:47:37 <JarnoO> cya Forest
11:47:47 <SantaFe108> bye fost
11:49:19 <LindaG> KorbenC, id have that stage 4 lindavitis looked at if I were you. šŸ˜„
11:52:23 <Grotto> Boy Giantess looks hot.
11:55:17 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, oh wow caught right on camera, huh
11:55:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Yes
11:55:40 <JarnoO> SE rim boils
11:58:10 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, The crane arrived
11:58:13 <SantaFe108> nice
11:58:49 <LindaG> Or at least
11:58:53 <LindaG> One
12:02:07 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> This one is early. My OF alarm just went off
12:03:00 <Eric> Well, parts of the crane Linda :-D
12:03:19 <Eric> The ballasts for the big crane take up 2 low boy trailers!
12:03:41 <Eric> It's going to take them many truckloads to bring in all the crane parts.
12:03:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Going to be big cranes then.
12:04:09 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Was that one of those OF minors?
12:04:18 <Eric> Yes, there are tracks directly below the engines, so they are going to have to stretch
12:05:59 <LindaG> I wish our cam was as good as these train cams
12:07:58 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They are usually very good. Pretty soon there should be a bunch of guys in white helmets show up.
12:09:25 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> BTW those yellow machines are tampers. They pack the ballast (rocks) around the ties and level the track.
12:13:13 <Eric> Big boy crane incoming on cam
12:14:58 <LindaG> Here they come
12:15:34 <Eric> The arm on that crane is as thick as a car!
12:15:43 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Probably be more than one of those show up. I suspect that they will use one in front and one in the rear and put the engines on the good track.
12:19:27 <LindaG> News spreads fast 3,601 watching now
12:20:18 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> If they move that crane watch the wheels. They all steer with a varied ratio for turning. The boom rides free and the dolly hold it it and will move under it.
12:20:20 <Eric> Not positive there is a good track Kevin...will be interesting to see what happens.
12:21:58 <Eric> Doesn't look like they know exactly where to place the cranes
12:22:00 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> It derailed to the right so the other track should be good enough to move the derailed items.
12:22:27 <Eric> Also note, the train derailed right on the state line
12:22:42 <Eric> So the derailment is currently in two states
12:23:02 <JarnoO> Lion ini
12:25:01 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That is funny Eric. Twice the paperwork with the PUC.
12:25:08 <Eric> Wow! Those cranes are not big enough...bringing in a third bigger crane!
12:26:18 <Eric> My guess is they are bringing the engine down if they need something bigger
12:26:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They are gonna need a bigger boat!
12:33:38 <Eric> Virtual Railfan himself is reporting FYI
12:34:53 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1342Ā±5m if series continues. 7m27s
12:51:49 <LindaG> Now theres two erics, geyser and rail
12:52:46 <LindaG> Cya later
12:57:58 <SantaFe108> hi forsest
12:59:32 <Eric> Yep, I like big cranes and I cannot lie!
13:00:11 <Forestbewithyou> Hello SF... Apparently the sun is starting a new solar cycle and we are in a minimum right now
13:00:17 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Crane operators are fun to watch. Also a good grader operator.
13:00:30 <SantaFe108> p
13:00:32 <SantaFe108> o*
13:02:05 <Eric> FYI, there are 2 cams there, second is PTZ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aNc8iVY-r8
13:03:17 <Eric> Interesting note...the only double deck 4 rail bridge in the world!
13:26:55 <ynpvisitor> Look at all those hondas that are going no where.
13:29:12 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> The bummer is that any vehicle in a derailed car is destroyed.
13:30:06 <JarnoO> it's a car train?
13:31:01 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Yes. Those are called autoracks and hold 10-15 vehicles per car.
13:31:26 <KorbenC> Ryan just sent an email to listerv.
13:31:43 <KorbenC> lol
13:31:51 <JarnoO> interesting. Here they commonly aren't covered up and there are 8 to 10 vehicles per car
13:31:54 <ynpvisitorat> no action from Bee today?
13:32:10 <JarnoO> so far only some splashing in the cone
13:34:52 <JarnoO> well played, Ryan, well played. I didn't even notice that typo in the subject header
13:35:46 <Grotto> I saw something else when I looked at the subject line. I bit my tongue, however.
13:40:06 <JarnoO> ahem... The left side of the static frame is only for professionals. Honestly
13:41:24 <Grotto> Haha, Ryan's comment is far more professional than my initial intepretation.
13:43:50 <JarnoO> Lion ie
13:43:55 <JarnoO> Bee post-eruptive
13:44:14 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Glad we got OF.....
13:47:33 <JarnoO> there's actually some Bee steam drifting into frame @ 1340
13:58:21 <SantaFe108> wait i miss BH
13:58:25 <SantaFe108> nooo
13:58:34 <KorbenC> SantaFe108, we all did
13:58:52 <SantaFe108> my GT never updated
13:58:55 <SantaFe108> KorbenC, OF?
13:58:58 <SantaFe108> was it OF
13:59:00 <KorbenC> yup
13:59:02 <SantaFe108> :p
13:59:05 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We got OF though. :P
13:59:22 <SantaFe108> atleast we know it's alive though
14:00:16 <SantaFe108> its been a long time since aurum
14:01:25 <KorbenC> 1 hour 30 mintues into homework, about 1/2 way thoguh :) Ah, I love studying for math tests :)
14:01:54 <Forestbewithyou> Whats funny is that is exactly what I am doing as well.. I have a math test tomorrow
14:02:16 <Forestbewithyou> speaking of which I have to go to a meeting with my teacher... Be back later
14:02:38 <SantaFe108> cya forest
14:03:57 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Last test I took I flunked. Should have studied harder. Unfortunately it was a blood test.
14:04:35 <KorbenC> I hate to say it, but I am LMAO
14:05:06 <SantaFe108> i should proabbly be studying
14:06:09 <KorbenC> What math class are you taking this year SF?
14:06:26 <SantaFe108> not for math but im in math 3
14:06:46 <KorbenC> math 3? thats a thing?
14:06:56 <SantaFe108> yes
14:07:17 <KorbenC> whats that equivililent too? Pre Calc, Calc 1, Calc BC/AB, ect?
14:09:10 <SantaFe108> I don't know I just transferred to this school from a completely different one with a different system and they just threw me in whatever
14:09:38 <KorbenC> I might be able to piece it together if you have an example of what your learning?
14:09:59 <SantaFe108> its all review right now
14:10:34 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
14:10:38 <KorbenC> becuase ive never heard of "Math 3"
14:11:18 <SantaFe108> ive had a very rough and bumpy road through school, a couple transfers and life tragedies has made it very hard
14:14:12 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Nice CP and KCS units. Need to change my diapers after that horn.
14:14:27 <SantaFe108> hi Linda
14:14:36 <LindaG> Oh I like the CP train
14:14:36 <KorbenC> Per google, California does nto use the same math names as CO does, Math three doesnt have a CO equivilent :P
14:14:59 <SantaFe108> hm interesting
14:15:07 <Eric> KCS engines where pretty!
14:16:08 <SantaFe108> beautiful KCS
14:17:00 <LindaG> SantaFe108, very stylish šŸ˜Š
14:17:05 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I notice the Fuzz showed up.
14:17:13 <LindaG> Yup
14:17:24 <SantaFe108> :P
14:18:12 <LindaG> So what does KCS stand for
14:18:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Kansas City Southern
14:18:44 <LindaG> Thx
14:18:50 <SantaFe108> i fhoe
14:18:53 <SantaFe108> hi forest*
14:19:03 <Forestbewithyou> Hi SF
14:22:20 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, ah I couldnt read the name on my tablet, too small
14:23:17 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> There was even a CP Pacman grain hopper in there.
14:23:50 <SantaFe108> just realized that I needed to click play on the wc for like 10 minutes
14:24:04 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
14:24:37 <LindaG> I do that a lot
14:24:54 <SantaFe108> another symptom of lindavitis?!
14:29:04 <KorbenC> OK, that last bit of homework is finally done!
14:29:12 <KorbenC> now I have an hour of geysers before walk time :D
14:30:35 <SantaFe108> nice
14:34:30 <Eric> Being on that VirtualRail webcam is like sitting at SB!
14:34:48 <Eric> Every 5 seconds someone comes on and asks the exact same question!
14:34:50 <KorbenC> Eric, its not that boring! ;)
14:35:01 <KorbenC> LMFAO
14:35:07 <SantaFe108> Eric, "when is this predicted to erupt???"
14:35:38 <Eric> What happened? Is the engineer ok? What caused this?
14:35:51 <KorbenC> Speaking of which, does anyone ahve the link to the transaction 6 article?
14:36:07 <Eric> Also, they brought in a 4th crane so far, a wheel one brought in on a flat car across the bridge.
14:36:19 <SantaFe108> http://www.gosa.org/transactions/GOSA_Transactions6.pdf
14:36:22 <Eric> Also, the cars that didn't derail have been dragged backwards.
14:36:34 <KorbenC> SF has it bookmarked by now, lol
14:36:38 <Eric> I have heard it has some great Sprinkler info
14:36:51 <SantaFe108> it has a whole article for sprinkler
14:37:09 <SantaFe108> but its saved in my history so whenever I type "gosa" it autofills it
14:37:36 <Eric> So they are still waiting on a 500 ton crane inbound for that derailment. Not sure I have ever even seen a 500 ton crane!
14:38:53 <SantaFe108> my wc is very stuttery
14:39:19 <Eric> They are preppiing up the pulley block on cam 2
14:43:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> You can switch cams by clicking on the "suitcase" with arrows Eric.
14:45:13 <SantaFe108> cadlt
14:45:41 <KorbenC> late ie, already major
14:45:56 <SantaFe108> wow suprised that nobody even got it
14:46:01 <SantaFe108> its super far along
14:48:10 <SantaFe108> and daisy too
14:54:33 <KorbenC> Well, I am going to go for a walk.
14:54:47 <SantaFe108> cya korben good luck :thumbsup:
15:00:45 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Looked like a KCT GP35 and a K&O GP 38 there SantaFe.
15:01:33 <SantaFe108> nice kitty
15:02:43 <SantaFe108> lion itself just quit the chat
15:03:03 <Eric> holy smokes...big crane on cam now!
15:03:07 <Eric> it's HUGE!
15:03:40 <Eric> At least 22 gigantic wheels, if some of them aren't doubled up more!
15:03:57 <SantaFe108> the big man arrives
15:05:31 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> And now a word from out sponsor. (Which means Aurum will erupt.)
15:06:21 <SantaFe108> Aurum is like a tourist, always shows up for OF
15:07:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Wonder what that crane costs per hour.
15:10:14 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> This is how we do it in Nevada. https://www.railpictures.net/photo/321585/
15:10:38 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, I like that pcituye
15:10:40 <SantaFe108> picue
15:10:45 <SantaFe108> picture**
15:16:34 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Cam dumped me
15:16:48 <SantaFe108> :p
15:17:01 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Got it back
15:17:08 <SantaFe108> :)
15:17:14 <Forestbewithyou> Yay!
15:17:44 <Eric> A lot Kevin! 500 ton mobile crane has got to be super expensive to bring in. Pretty specialized.
15:18:08 <Eric> I am guess there is a day rate as it's so slow to move. maybe $20k/day
15:18:18 <Eric> and takes multiple crews to setup
15:19:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I am sure UP has an on call contract.
15:20:03 <SantaFe108> lol UP just posted 150 years on new york stock exchange today
15:20:40 <JarnoO> locomotive: "150 years on the stock exchange? Here, have a derailment."
15:21:03 <SantaFe108> :lol:
15:28:17 <JarnoO> oh lol... Guess I'm not fully awake yet. Wrong formatting of /getvideo there
15:28:48 <SantaFe108> spash
15:56:01 <JarnoO> I'm off for the day. Enjoy Giantess should it go
15:56:23 <Greg> Hi and Bye JarnoO

16:07:25 <SantaFe108> lots of folks standing by BH I wonder if it is a tour
16:09:46 <Eric> sorry, haven't really been here all day...too busy watching big cranes :-P
16:10:13 <SantaFe108> who else do we pay to say "Pump!"
16:10:16 <LindaG> I was just watchin
16:10:27 <Eric> They just brought in a cutting torch it looks like to separate the something from car.
16:10:50 <Eric> They disconnected the back lift.
16:13:14 <LindaG> Eric, oh camera 2 was wondering how you saw all that
16:13:53 <Greg> What are you guys watching?

18:17:11 <KorbenC> Hi Laura!
18:17:20 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Laura
18:17:43 <Laura> Hello Korben, Forest, SF
18:17:44 <SantaFe108> glad to have some sprinkler fans :)
18:21:14 <KorbenC> Laura, how are you?
18:25:19 <SantaFe108> hello Rich
18:25:28 <KorbenC> hi Rich
18:26:08 <Laura> OK, Korben. Still a lot of smoke in SoCal, but OC is not too bad today
18:26:12 <Rich> Evening SantaFe108, KorbenC
18:26:24 <haze is us> very nice 2nd on Grand, thanks for the 1726 hint
18:26:35 <Laura> Watching the situation at Mt. Wilson very closely, the Bobcat fire is getting really close
18:26:49 <Rich> still a lot of smoke in WA.
18:26:56 <haze is us> what state?
18:27:03 <Laura> California
18:27:09 <SantaFe108> :( stay safe Laura, love from Riverside
18:27:19 <Laura> Specifically i am from SoCal
18:27:43 <SantaFe108> haze is us, no problem
18:27:43 <Laura> The Mt. Wilson observatory in LA is in danger from the fire
18:28:23 <haze is us> I will look that fire up
18:29:29 <Laura> Cameras atop Mt. Wilson, lots of smoke http://hpwren.ucsd.edu/cameras/wilson.html
18:29:45 <SantaFe108> Laura, an apocalyptic scene
18:29:49 <haze is us> looks awful, only 3% containment
18:30:13 <Laura> It's burning in really rough terrain in the San Gabriel mountains
18:30:26 <Laura> Hard to get crews up to fight the fire
18:30:41 <haze is us> is your town close by?
18:30:50 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Those bobcats will do it to you for sure.
18:30:53 <Greg> OF
18:31:16 <KorbenC> NOPE
18:31:18 <Greg> -OF
18:31:19 <SantaFe108> looks like it died :p
18:31:21 <Laura> But the firefighters are up there prepared to defend the observatory and they have a lot of firefighting equipment up there including a huge tank with a high capacity pump to supply water
18:31:32 <KorbenC> SF, you know what that means for us?
18:31:42 <SantaFe108> delay?
18:32:29 <KorbenC> ding ding
18:32:32 <Laura> haze is us, no, I live in OC about fifty miles south. But I"m a native angeleno and a science geek and the observatory has a big place in the early history of astronomy
18:33:00 <SantaFe108> well ill use the restroom in the mean time
18:33:08 <Laura> Specifically I live in Mission Veijo
18:33:11 <haze is us> hopefully it can be defended
18:33:13 <Laura> Viejo
18:33:19 <haze is us> all around it, maybe not so much
18:34:09 <Laura> If you really want to see the apocalypse go back to that Mt. Wilson camera in two hours. Wildfires at night are terrifying
18:34:40 <Laura> Optical effects make the fire look much closer than it might really be
18:35:06 <SantaFe108> back
18:35:12 <Rich> wb
18:35:16 <SantaFe108> thansk
18:36:22 <SantaFe108> cmon
18:38:01 <Greg> OF
18:38:14 <KorbenC> that looks real :)
18:38:20 <Laura> For example in this pic it probably look like Mission Viejo is about to burn down, but the fire is actually at least a couple miles away from the edge of the city at this point https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Santiago_fire_seen_from_Mission_Viejo_October_2007.jpg
