06:11:54 <LindaG> G, morning, nice SB
06:27:43 <Rice> So my daughter just tried to text me she was in Zoom, but in came through as in Zion. I asked her how the river and canyon were.
06:27:59 <KorbenC> hahahaha
06:28:04 <Rice> She didn't think it was a funny as I did!
06:28:19 <KorbenC> how not? thats hillarious!
06:29:24 <Rice> Now I wish I was in Zion, and am a little sad.........
06:32:03 <KorbenC> Rice,
06:36:37 <KorbenC> for JO (sicne I suspect hes here), Atlantic 90/90 and D2 is going gto be a failed invest.
06:37:17 <LindaG> Morning Rice, KorbenC,
06:37:23 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
06:37:46 <LindaG> I wish I were in Zion too
06:38:06 <LindaG> Or Yellowstone or Grand Canyon....
06:38:35 <KorbenC> or all 3? :P
06:41:10 <KorbenC> LindaG, are you running until Kat takes over at 0700?
06:42:50 <KorbenC> Hi Dun
06:42:51 <Forestbewithyou> Good Morning everyone
06:42:56 <KorbenC> Forest**
06:43:00 <Forestbewithyou> DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!
06:43:11 <Forestbewithyou> :)
06:46:46 <G> What to do today...
06:48:23 <KorbenC> G, G!
06:48:29 <KorbenC> G as in Giantess
06:49:47 <Forestbewithyou> HI Kat
06:50:02 <KorbenC> Hi Kat
06:50:21 <Kat> Hi !
06:51:16 <Kat> Is Joe here?
06:52:24 <KorbenC> Kat, I do know that hte cams been on OF for a long time
06:52:47 <Kat> OK thanks
06:55:54 <G> Giantess had 2 boils in 30m when i sat there
06:56:17 <Kat> Nice
07:08:27 <cb> Good morning all
07:08:42 <Kat> Morning all
07:09:05 <Semi-Centennial> Good morning, cb.
07:11:59 <G> Morning cb...whats the plan today?
07:12:09 <G> I am heading to Fountain
07:13:09 <Rice> LindaG, Yea Any National Park would be fine.
07:13:20 <cb> I hear there was some...dicussion yesterday about E times and I'd like to clarify that we LOVE accurate E time data! We are NOT opposed to that at all. The E times pulled from the YNM and YNR are fantastic and get to word out many who might not get a chance to see SB. It is the E times based only on the YNR that caused such a problem
07:14:18 <cb> Hey G... coming your way I think. or kayaking
07:15:26 <Forestbewithyou> hi cb
07:15:33 <G> Ok, headed out. Bye
07:15:35 <cb> The E times are so helpful to many at SB AND in the UGB and we thank you all for posting what you do!
07:15:54 <Kat> :)
07:16:34 <cb> Hey Forest. You get that hatband cleaned up yet? :)
07:17:22 <Forestbewithyou> Not yet... I am planning on doing that this weekend.
07:18:43 <cb> It was the mess up with the YNR only E times that caused many to come out in the night to see it and it wasn't erupting or miss it as they thought it had already erupted. I hope this clarifies some misunderstandings
07:20:38 <JarnoO> thanks for clarifying
07:20:53 <Semi-Centennial> Would waiting for an in-basin report help on your end in any way?
07:20:56 <Kat> cb, Much appreciated
07:21:28 <Semi-Centennial> We don't wish to cause any unneeded stress.
07:21:41 <KorbenC> Hi Jarno
07:21:45 <KorbenC> Hi cb
07:22:30 <KorbenC> cb, thx for clarifying Ryans "statements" :D
07:22:35 <cb> Semi-cent... no, not really! I would only wait if it ONLY shows up on the YNR. There are just to many variables with the YNR only posts. weather, construction, etc
07:22:35 <KorbenC> It is much appreciated
07:23:20 <KorbenC> cb, that I can do :)
07:23:47 <Semi-Centennial> Thank you, cb. The clarifications help. I know there are some who are trying to right some wrongs and may be trying a bit hard.
07:24:22 <JarnoO> ah, like so. So if YNR were to be the only seismograph working, then wait until the Tantalus gauge updates or some extra information becomes available
07:24:27 <cb> And then the ? or A on the post is good. Problem with that is many "newbies" to GT don't understand those additional icons... That was some of the problem earlier
07:25:05 <KorbenC> Makes sense, if im not 100% sure, I will try to maybe add a longer comment hoping that they read it :)
07:25:11 <Semi-Centennial> Are the reports of large numbers of visitors referring to GT true?
07:25:17 <cb> yes JarnoO!
07:25:24 <JarnoO> :thumbsup:
07:25:33 <KorbenC> Morning Jarno
07:25:35 <cb> Love your Giantess reports! TY!
07:25:45 <JarnoO> no problem :)
07:26:03 <KorbenC> cb, where are you going today?
07:26:28 <cb> Yes, visitation has not slowed down much...
07:27:36 <Semi-Centennial> We are sorry if our activities here cause any issues in the basin. The details of yesterdays... discussion... were confusing but it was clear the something may be going on in part from camchat activities.
07:28:04 <Semi-Centennial> If that is happening, is there anything we can do here to help?
07:28:25 <cb> I think the most frustrating thing is some social media person PREDICTING SB with a 3 hours window. That is awful to try to explain and I hear they are using my GT posts to do this. Thats frustrating
07:29:17 <KorbenC> they are WHAT? I mean, making a guesstimate +/- 24 hours I could see, but predicting it to a 3hr window is just, nope :)
07:29:42 <Semi-Centennial> Oh my.
07:29:46 <JarnoO> within a 3-hour window is absolutely ridiculous. Ā±24h can still be explainable, especially if it has been somewhat consistent in that range, but otherwise, yuck
07:30:56 <cb> Semi... I think your doing a great job.. It does get frustrating to try to explain that it is not predicable and that the info on social media is inaccurate, but when they read my own post to me with a different inflection and interoperation.... THAT is just weird!
07:31:25 <KorbenC> haha, that is odd :)
07:31:26 <Kat> Not good - creates issues for so many!
07:32:58 <KorbenC> thx much for the update, say hi to Bill for us.
07:33:45 <cb> I just wanted to take the time to clarify our stance and that all of us gazers are just trying to share info the best way we can. E time, WC time, in basin times! It's all good!
07:34:01 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:34:06 <Forestbewithyou> :thumbsup:
07:34:10 <Semi-Centennial> Thank you. I think the concern was that those 'predictions' were coming from here.
07:34:15 <Semi-Centennial> Have a good day.
07:34:26 <JarnoO> we appreaciate it, cb, enjoy your day
07:35:47 <cb> I was told it is from someone on a Jackson Hole FB page.... I don't get on FB so not sure... Anyway, I hope this helps and everyone stay out of the smoke! It's BAD here!
07:36:04 <Forestbewithyou> Oh no!
07:36:42 <cb> Exit,,, stage right! Have a good day and thanks for listening!
07:36:44 <Kat> Looks bad - be safe
07:36:45 <JarnoO> I really hope some rain falls sooner rather than later. This is no fun for sure!
07:36:57 <JarnoO> cya cb
07:36:58 <Forestbewithyou> Bye cb.. Have a great day
07:37:12 <KorbenC> cb, cya, have a wonderful day.
07:37:16 <Kat> cb, Thanks - have a fun day
07:37:30 <cb> you too!
07:38:15 <JarnoO> Dep?
07:38:45 <JarnoO> not sure. Looks like heavy overflow
07:39:03 <Kat> Hard to see
07:40:02 <JarnoO> MC ie
07:40:15 <KorbenC> School time!
07:40:23 <Kat> KorbenC, bye
07:40:23 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Korben
07:40:28 <JarnoO> cya Korben
07:40:37 <KorbenC> Sned text if Giantess goes
07:40:54 <JarnoO> then you can use it as a background :)
07:42:00 <Kat> Wish we could see G more clearly
07:43:26 <JarnoO> boils
07:44:49 <LindaG> Morning all
07:45:02 <JarnoO> morning all
07:45:06 <Kat> LindaG, Hi Linda
07:45:13 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
07:45:51 <JarnoO> would this help with trash problems in Yellowstone?
07:46:38 <Kat> Might create new jobs :)
07:48:56 <JarnoO> looks like Dep's going for round two in an attempt to erupt
07:49:30 <JarnoO> hm, was :P
07:49:51 <JarnoO> still full by the looks of it. Weird
07:49:52 <Kat> :p

07:56:19 <Kat> Forestbewithyou, cya later
07:56:35 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, bye
07:57:10 <JarnoO> SE rim
07:57:20 <JarnoO> actually, N rim
08:01:07 <JarnoO> today might be the first day of real attempts. Even historically, sub-5d intervals are rare unless you had an aborted eruption preceding
08:01:17 <JarnoO> sub-6d*
08:02:43 <Kat> Craigs down there somewhere!
08:03:16 <Kat> Looks like Daisy steam
08:06:36 <Michael> Lion's going
08:08:01 <LindaG> It's also a good reminder that we are not alone šŸ˜³ other people are reading the chat
08:08:33 <Kat> So true Linda
08:16:05 <Michael> Someone duplicated that lone bison out in the field.
08:16:18 <SantaFe108> hello Kevin

08:26:19 <Take the Long W> Yeah, but I used that one before
08:26:34 <LindaG> Where the buffalo roam?
08:26:47 <TaketheLongWay > Supertramp
08:26:57 <Kat> and the antelope play all day!
08:27:05 <TaketheLongWay > Holmium on the Range would work too
08:27:07 <Kat> Love Supertramp!
08:27:22 <LindaG> Where seldom is heard....
08:27:44 <Kat> LOL

08:34:35 <CraigC> Morning
08:34:51 <SantaFe108> hI Craig
08:34:51 <JarnoO> morning Craig. I see you're having fun downbasin
08:35:15 <CraigC> Yep
08:35:52 <CraigC> I believe daisy erupted in the last half hour, some runoff
08:37:01 <JarnoO> Kat mentioned she thought she saw Daisy steam @ 0806
08:37:42 <JarnoO> 0803*
08:38:06 <CraigC> JarnoO, you might want to look at my sb video i loaded yesterday.... some cool stuff going on if you look
08:38:27 <JarnoO> I saw the first part with that third vent throwing rocks. Amazing
08:41:14 <lori lurking Je> Morning all. Just popping in. Was the new winter 2020/2021 Xanterra info already mentioned?
08:41:28 <JarnoO> morning LLJM
08:41:42 <SantaFe108> hello LLJM
08:42:13 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hey Lori.
08:42:55 <Eric> Morning all
08:43:02 <JarnoO> morning Eric
08:43:08 <SantaFe108> Helo eric
08:43:20 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Done watching trains Eric?
08:44:45 <KorbenC> Done with class one :)
08:44:52 <KorbenC> I love it when teachers let us go early :D
08:45:02 <SantaFe108> hello Korben
08:45:07 <KorbenC> Hi SF
08:47:10 <CraigC> JarnoO, did Eric or someone share it here?
08:47:29 <Eric> haha, was just rewinding the KC feed to see the first train go across :-D
08:47:32 <JarnoO> not sure who it was, but it was shared here
08:47:32 <KorbenC> Craig, thanks for the SB video, I saw it on FB, Spectacular start.
08:47:46 <Eric> Hey Craig, Yep, I shared your SB video
08:47:53 <Eric> here
08:48:24 <SantaFe108> CraigC, that SB video was incredibly intense
08:48:26 <Eric> Really cool center "vent" type action too.
08:48:47 <Eric> You had anymore discussions with anyone about that center column?
08:48:47 <SantaFe108> I especially liked the restart video too, that was cool to see NV and SV just stop like that and restart
08:52:49 <CraigC> Eric, i talked to someone last night... she said they had seen before
08:52:58 <forestbewithyou> Hey Craig
08:53:07 <SantaFe108> hi Forest
08:53:17 <forestbewithyou> Hey SF
08:55:53 <Eric> Did they suggest vent or something else as the cause?
08:57:51 <CraigC> forestbewithyou, hey dude
08:59:18 <CraigC> Eric, my guess is a vent that typically blows steam maybe, and when water and debris recycle back down then it bliws out tgat stuff
09:00:21 <JarnoO> Teddy has gotten a nice eye in daylight imagery recently. Still needs to fully clear it, but it's there
09:00:42 <forestbewithyou> What catagory is it up to now?
09:01:06 <Michael> update out any minute now.
09:01:12 <JarnoO> advisory is yet to be released, but NHC says it's now a major hurricane
09:01:15 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Bully!
09:01:21 <forestbewithyou> Oh jeesh
09:01:53 <Eric> Thanks Craig
09:02:00 <SantaFe108> glad that water doesn't exist for half the year where I live šŸ˜Ž
09:02:00 <JarnoO> it's out, actually. 105kt
09:03:02 <JarnoO> and even the NHC says 105 could be a little conservative, with UW-CIMMS ADT and SATCON reporting values of 120 and 111kt, respectively
09:03:36 <JarnoO> wouldn't be surprised if it were to reach category 5
09:04:09 <JarnoO> Sally post-tropical
09:04:41 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, scary :(
09:05:13 <JarnoO> Bermuda won't like it, that's for sure, but otherwise only large swells so far
09:05:24 <Michael> No news on the Gulf of Mexico system. Maybe it gets an official identity this afternoon.
09:05:47 <SantaFe108> I don't know much about weather but sounds bad
09:05:53 <JarnoO> might require a special advisory if it organizes quickly
09:06:26 <SantaFe108> worst weather ive seen was being in a hailstorm blowing horizontal, while in a small metal livestock barn in kansas
09:06:29 <JarnoO> SF, as long as Teddy stays away from land, impacts should be minimal. No need to worry
09:06:33 <Eric> Going to rename this chat room to the Geyser/Rail/Weather Nerd fan club :-P
09:06:44 <SantaFe108> Eric, :D
09:06:52 <Bhoffer> lol
09:07:14 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, during that hailstorm my kansas relatives called me and told me it was a tornado but then after it passed the said just kidding
09:07:17 <SantaFe108> really freaked me out
09:07:19 <forestbewithyou> Good idea Eric :)
09:07:22 <Eric> I would take a light tropical storm right now please.
09:07:39 <SantaFe108> Eric, I would also take a crumb of rain
09:07:43 <Eric> I would need a LOT more widgets :-P
09:07:47 <forestbewithyou> I think you would prefer a heavy downpour
09:07:56 <forestbewithyou> that sustains for a period of time
09:08:12 <Eric> I think light tropical storms provide pretty good downpours :-D
09:08:23 <SantaFe108> not sure heavy downpour would work where I live we have alot of flash floods
09:08:29 <Katie> I would love for CA, OR & WA to get soaked and start exporting something other than smoke!
09:08:42 <Michael> Talking about the weather helps pass the time while few geysers are erupting. :)
09:08:42 <SantaFe108> every time it rains hard helicopters have to rescue people
09:08:42 <forestbewithyou> Maybe a tropical depression...
09:08:45 <Eric> Sorry...our smoke sucks
09:09:12 <SantaFe108> I hope Laura is ok Bobcat fire is really close to Los Angeles area
09:09:30 <forestbewithyou> welp I have to go... ttyl
09:09:38 <JarnoO> cya Forest
09:09:39 <SantaFe108> forest, cya later
09:09:48 <Eric> New fire in Beaverhead I see
09:10:35 <SantaFe108> :(
09:11:01 <Eric> Been going for a few days and small, but really blazed up last night
09:13:42 <SantaFe108> El Dorado was being closed in then it broke containment and exploded into a new valley by Angelus Oaks
09:19:01 <Michael> Funny to see the Arcadia Wilderness Park as a waypoint for the Bobcat fire. I remember spending an afternoon there gazing up into the mountains.
09:22:34 <Katie> Getting some interesting smoke-filtered light
09:24:59 <JarnoO> Lion
09:31:29 <JarnoO> time to make dinner
09:31:46 <JarnoO> Next Lion @ 1028Ā±5m if series continues. 3m22s
09:44:29 <Katie> Bah!
09:44:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> :p
09:50:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Bonnet coming to the loop SantaFe
09:57:15 <Chancellor> looks like lots of smoke today
10:00:46 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> There is that Perry Mason music. Guess I better fasten seatbelt.
10:02:40 <Eric> Kevin is here...time for Giantess!
10:03:33 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> The cam will probably break.
10:03:56 <Eric> :-D
10:04:11 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Or derail
10:04:16 <Eric> haha
10:04:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Well that is a surprise
10:05:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> It even beat the OF window!
10:05:59 <Michael> Nice way to start of the shift!
10:09:59 <Eric> Nice...thanks guys!
10:10:04 <Eric> watched the replay :-D
10:10:11 <SantaFe108> back
10:10:22 <SantaFe108> oh no I missed aurum
10:10:45 <Michael> NPS castle prediction is a mystery to me. Maybe they have an E time up their sleeve.
10:10:49 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> And a bonnet.
10:11:25 <SantaFe108> NPS has a warbonnet?
10:12:00 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> On the loop DantaFe
10:12:14 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, oh ok
10:12:36 <SantaFe108> I sorta have a plan for a trip to a thermal area by me
10:12:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Salton Sea?
10:12:57 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, bingo
10:13:03 <SantaFe108> the "New Mud Pots"
10:13:30 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Watch out for giant snails
10:13:40 <SantaFe108> some of the coolest looking mud pots ive seen from videos and pictures, with these 10 ft tall cones
10:13:41 <Eric> meaner than bison?
10:13:55 <SantaFe108> some of them are trrue "mud volcanoes"
10:14:14 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They eat bison Eric
10:14:40 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, don't worry I doubt they will challenge the world anytime soon
10:14:59 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> :)
10:16:00 <SantaFe108> heres a nice picture of one of the big cones erupting mud
10:16:01 <SantaFe108>
10:16:34 <Eric> OF ie
10:16:45 <SantaFe108> uhh oh
10:16:47 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> You can pickup some good dates there too SantaFe
10:16:54 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, :lol:
10:17:16 <Eric> Take a nice mud bath :-D
10:17:29 <Eric> heard it's good for your complexion
10:17:58 <Eric> You can take a red sulfur bath in Red Boiling Springs tennessee!
10:18:10 <SantaFe108> :) I wouldn't be suprised if people have done it, its competely unprotected
10:18:13 <Eric> Stinkiest bath you will ever take :-D
10:18:23 <SantaFe108> just a dirt road then bam! giant cones erupting hot mud
10:18:39 <SantaFe108> the mud cones remind me of Monument geyser basin
10:18:41 <Eric> Well, there is a giant thermo complex out there too :-P
10:18:49 <SantaFe108> yeah true
10:19:16 <SantaFe108> best geyser cone might have to go to Union, that thing looks sick
10:19:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Have you seen Thermos Bottle Geyser?
10:20:14 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, not in person but its incredibly cool
10:20:26 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Worth the hike.
10:21:09 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, although the geysers at Monument are all asleep/very very weak It has some of the coolest cones in the world
10:21:42 <SantaFe108> isn't there a theory that the cones are underground plumbing and the soft soil eroded away around them?
10:22:30 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> First part of the hike is easy. 2nd part is straight up but interesting.
10:25:20 <SantaFe108> last time I was at yellowstone my sister went to a hike but did not know there was 1000 ft elevation change of just switchbacks
10:25:28 <SantaFe108> she regretted everything :lol:
10:26:41 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I'll bet. This one just goes up. No switchbacks but it could use some.
10:31:55 <Eric> My video of thermos bottle from last spring -
10:32:52 <SantaFe108> last time I hiked it was pure pain because I did it the day after midnight trackwork
10:33:18 <SantaFe108> Castle Rock trail in Big Bear Lake
10:33:28 <SantaFe108> takes you up to a massive granite outcropping
10:34:23 <SantaFe108> My sister wants to do the PCT at some point so she's trying to build up her hiking skills
10:34:47 <SantaFe108> we have friends in Oregon who can resupply her up there which is nice
10:36:02 <Eric> Nice...good luck to her! If she needs anything at the Cascade Locks stop, just yell SanteFe
10:36:16 <Eric> I would be happy to be a trail angel :-D
10:36:40 <SantaFe108> :) that would be nice :D
10:36:50 <SantaFe108> She wants me to come along with her but im not sure I can do it
10:37:21 <Eric> Start walking around your block every day...daily walking is the key to building up your endurance
10:37:44 <Eric> So many people up on the hill for mid September!
10:38:02 <Eric> I thought crowds where supposed to die down by now!
10:38:08 <SantaFe108> there is a very popular hill hike on Mount Roubidoux by my house I sometimes do
10:38:36 <SantaFe108> if I want i can hike from my house to the beach 60 miles
10:38:44 <SantaFe108> there is a trail most of the way
10:40:10 <Eric> You can mail resupplies to destinations too SF, Cascade Locks is a typical resupply stop. There is a hostel there that takes supplies by mail and then you get a shower and bed for the night too.
10:40:32 <SantaFe108> thats really cool
10:40:58 <Eric> Cascade locks has PCT days every year...coolest long distance hiking event I have ever been to.
10:41:45 <Eric> 3 day long hiking party :-P With about every ultra light hiking company in existence there as vendors handing out free stuff.
10:42:01 <SantaFe108> wow thats big
10:42:03 <Eric> Bummed they had to cancel this year :-(
10:42:22 <Pocket> Giantess SE rim
10:42:55 <Eric> utt ohh, someone trying to sneak in here and take Jarno's job :-P
10:43:20 <Pocket> Someone needs to keep an eye out there while he is gone. :)
10:43:39 <SantaFe108> those people are getting close to that bison
10:43:44 <SantaFe108> off the path too
10:44:13 <SantaFe108> good he walked away, bison doesn't have time for paparazzi
10:44:13 <Eric> They are fine
10:44:37 <Eric> wow nice. 7ft burst on Black Sands
10:44:41 <SantaFe108> I wonder where the other 2 went there were 3 this morning
10:44:49 <Eric> Would have loved to see that
10:44:56 <SantaFe108> Eric, woah just saw the note, incredible
10:45:07 <SantaFe108> wb Jarno
10:45:26 <JarnoO> nice note on Black Sand Pool
10:45:43 <SantaFe108> for sure
10:47:30 <JarnoO> Turban 1046
10:47:34 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ,
10:48:00 <SantaFe108> LindaG, omg!
10:49:50 <LindaG> Hopefully no one was hurt
10:51:17 <Eric> Yes, that would surprise me if that wasn't human triggered
10:51:18 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Those are common there
10:51:49 <JarnoO> F&M event cycle 0955
10:57:10 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, nice 4 minutes into your shift and auru shower up, it's an omen
10:57:24 <LindaG> *aurum showed
10:57:55 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I was just about to move the cam to OF when it went.
10:58:19 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, it likes that spot
10:58:43 <Eric> What time is giantess predicted?
10:59:05 <Eric> How many years have you guys been sitting here?
10:59:37 <JarnoO> it's now in window whenever the wind calms. If the wind increases, it isn't in window
10:59:43 <Katie> Where is the website that predicts Steamboat eruption in 40 minutes?
10:59:45 <LindaG> 3pm +/- 7 days
10:59:48 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Is something supposed to happen here?
10:59:56 <Eric> wind says 1mph Jarno :-P
11:00:05 <Eric> good one Kevin
11:00:10 <KorbenC> on my lunch break :D
11:00:16 <SantaFe108> hi Korben
11:00:35 <JarnoO> Turban soon
11:00:35 <Eric> Still haven't found it yet Katie...but I will keep looking :-D
11:00:55 <SantaFe108> where is F&M button!
11:01:45 <JarnoO> Lion appears end of series
11:01:49 <Eric> I like that prediction Linda :-D
11:02:02 <LindaG> Eric, šŸ˜Š
11:02:03 <Eric> Giantess predicted at 3pm +- 24h
11:02:06 <KorbenC> is Kat still running the cam?
11:02:08 <KorbenC> Or is Linda?
11:02:17 <Eric> Kevin is our driver today Coop
11:02:22 <SantaFe108> yes
11:02:23 <LindaG> Neither, try again
11:02:42 <KorbenC> Kevin!
11:02:45 <Eric> sorry +- 12h
11:02:47 <KorbenC> Oh right, its after 10AM :D
11:03:03 <Eric> That is now my prediction for all geysers :-D
11:03:09 <Eric> 3pm +- 12h
11:03:11 <LindaG> šŸ”˜found the button, hit it
11:03:29 <KorbenC> LindaG, did you steal my F&M and Beehive button again?
11:03:41 <JarnoO> Lion end of series

11:11:54 <LindaG> Oh more icons to play with
11:12:26 <KorbenC> Yellowstone Button,
11:12:27 <KorbenC> :)
11:13:09 <SantaFe108> can't wait for the new MG video on our geyser buttons
11:13:32 <JarnoO> haha
11:13:50 <LindaG> šŸ˜ƒ
11:14:01 <LindaG> Dont tell MG
11:14:01 <KorbenC> hahaha, dont temp it!
11:15:35 <SantaFe108> looks like MG's Whale Watching & Long John Silver's Food Reviews is back to talking about earthquakes instead of giantess
11:18:02 <JarnoO> decent steam on Giantess for a little bit
11:18:47 <JarnoO> just about not a Turban delay
11:20:49 <LindaG> Bacteria looking good on G
11:21:09 <JarnoO> where's the barometric pressure gone in the weather widget?
11:21:38 <SantaFe108> hello Pam
11:22:11 <Pam> Hellow SantaFe108 and all! Just popping in to check the status on Giantess!
11:22:26 <Pam> Well, good grief...I really do know how to spell Hello...
11:22:41 <Michael> video reenactment of the Beehive button:
11:22:43 <LindaG> Pam, chat is possessed
11:23:10 <SantaFe108> Michael, dont tell our secrets!!!!!
11:23:11 <Pam> LindaG, hahaha!! I thought it was my fingers...
11:23:19 <JarnoO> morning Pam
11:23:40 <Pam> Morning JarnoO.
11:23:45 <LindaG> Pam, šŸ˜Š
11:24:19 <Eric> 3pm +- 12hN/A
11:24:27 <Eric> what the!
11:24:32 <Eric> chat is possessed!
11:24:39 <Eric> BP N/A
11:24:42 <LindaG> Pam, we all thought so too but there are too many of us for it to be a coincidence lol
11:25:08 <Eric> I think it's a typing virus and Dave infected us all!
11:25:33 <Pam> Well, washed mine this AM so can't do anything with them. Headed to the park tomorrow so I guess decide on the way whether to go to Mammoth via OF, lol.
11:25:35 <Eric> Dave is not here to defend himself, so I think it's fine to blame him!
11:26:11 <Michael> Darn uf Dace, it;s all your failt!
11:26:22 <Eric> Yes, stop at UGB...hopefully Giantess will go for you :-D
11:26:22 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Usually his fault anyway
11:26:22 <Pam> Hahaha....
11:26:27 <SantaFe108> hello Hope
11:26:29 <Eric> Exactly Michael
11:26:34 <KorbenC> Eric, he infected Linda and then it mutated into lindavitis, symptoms include blsiters on your fingers, excessive mis-type, bad humor, and leaving words randomly of sentnaces
11:26:41 <KorbenC> randomy out of setnances*
11:26:47 <RebelBotanist> Hey there! Also who is Santa Fe?!
11:26:47 <KorbenC> randolmy and sentances
11:26:52 <KorbenC> randomly*
11:26:53 <Pam> Well, coming from N Idaho on I90 so it's a few hours out of the way...but needs must.
11:26:56 <SantaFe108> korben is showing symptoms! GET HIM
11:27:05 <KorbenC> Hahahaha
11:27:08 <Eric> Who is anyone really
11:27:28 <KorbenC> wb Hope, btw
11:27:40 <SantaFe108> what a horrible time, covid and lindavitis!
11:27:46 <Pam> Will it help if we wear gloves when we type?
11:27:50 <RebelBotanist> We're all just flesh bags with brains...
11:27:57 <LindaG> This is a brand new art form, predicting giantess
11:27:59 <Eric> brains optional
11:28:12 <Michael> Ssh! Don't remind the zombies!
11:28:24 <Eric> mmmm, brains
11:28:33 <JarnoO> don't forget the living skeleton inside the bag!
11:28:36 <SantaFe108> predicting giantess is easy: 3pm, +/- āˆž minutes
11:28:44 <SantaFe108> covers it all
11:28:50 <Eric> You just need +- 12h SF
11:28:58 <RebelBotanist> Best geyser basin to hide out in for zombie apocalypse, go!
11:29:05 <RebelBotanist> And why?
11:29:12 <LindaG> The two times it erupted dep had big eruptions, but ya gotta catch dep
11:29:16 <SantaFe108> RebelBotanist, shoshone because union is there
11:29:34 <Forestbewithyou> Hello
11:29:38 <Katie> RebelBotanist, Norric, lots of thin crust over boiling acidic water for zombies to fall through/into
11:29:41 <Eric> who hides from zombies??
11:29:45 <SantaFe108> or you can go to monument, paint yourself grey, stand up straight and the zombies will think you are a geyser cone!
11:29:51 <Michael> Can't remember were Crypt Spring is...
11:29:52 <KorbenC> Hope, Nprris beucase it has SB and alot of acid :)
11:29:56 <KorbenC> Norrix
11:30:01 <KorbenC> Nirrid
11:30:04 <Forestbewithyou> ^^^
11:30:05 <KorbenC> Norris*
11:30:17 <KorbenC> Hi Forest
11:30:32 <Forestbewithyou> Or maybe like Shoeshone because it is quite the walk and so far away
11:30:35 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
11:30:45 <RebelBotanist> I think you'd have to dismantle boardwalks to make defensible positions.
11:31:01 <KorbenC> actually, yes, shoshone because then I can catch enough trout to survive :0
11:31:03 <RebelBotanist> Also, basins with huckleberries nearby for food.
11:31:07 <SantaFe108> build a fortress out of boardwalk planks at SB middle deck
11:31:48 <LindaG> Oh yum, who said huckleberries?
11:32:10 <Forestbewithyou> Maybe you can make friends with the bears and use them as your zombie army :)
11:32:12 <SantaFe108> if you're at west thumb you can try fishing
11:32:15 <KorbenC> :grand:
11:32:16 <SantaFe108> to survive the zombies
11:32:17 <Forestbewithyou> I mean bear army
11:32:23 <Eric> So does YNP have huckleberries or wild blueberries?
11:32:24 <Eric> Granbd
11:32:26 <RebelBotanist> Or maybe old faithful and beehive could be used to jettison zombies into the air.
11:32:36 <LindaG> Oops I have monarchs to release. Brb
11:32:47 <Michael> grand
11:32:53 <Eric> RebelBotanist might know
11:33:03 <SantaFe108> On this episode of brawls of Yellowstone: Bears VS Zombies, with special star guests: Gazers!
11:33:13 <JarnoO> I would opt for Fairyland Basin. Tremendously difficult to get to, but if you manage to set up some form of sustainable camp there you should be somewhat safe
11:33:39 <JarnoO> uhm... Graham... Are you sure Grand is Graceful? :P
11:33:42 <Eric> I think Fairyland would be have all kinds of zombies falling into your valley.
11:33:53 <Forestbewithyou> whoops
11:33:54 <RebelBotanist> There are huckleberries and I think I've seen the tingleberries!
11:34:31 <Eric> I need to do more hiking in YNP!
11:35:11 <Eric> If you like wildflowers Rebel, you should join the Oregon Wildflower Facebook many awesome PNW flower shots!
11:35:14 <Michael> i vaguely remember Shoshone having a blueberry patch nearby.
11:35:30 <Pocket> The fall into Fairyland is likely to dismember the zombies, though.
11:35:37 <Eric> People mistake wild blueberries for huckleberries often around here.
11:36:14 <KorbenC> Well, time for class again
11:36:32 <Eric> some really good botanists on that FB group too
11:36:35 <Pam> Thanks for the "prediction" on to run errands. TTYL.
11:36:40 <SantaFe108> KorbenC, cya korben
11:36:44 <Eric> cya Pam
11:36:48 <SantaFe108> cya pam
11:37:08 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Pam and Korben
11:37:10 <JarnoO> cya Pam
11:37:15 <JarnoO> and cya Korben
11:37:31 <RebelBotanist> Those kind of websites are dangerous to me... And as far as huckleberries, they are the same genera as blueberries (Vaccinium). Our huckleberries out east are in the general Gaylusacia.
11:42:16 <RebelBotanist> Dumb question to orient myself, the big stream plume is Grand, right?
11:42:25 <Pocket> Yes
11:42:32 <Pocket> Hard to see through the smoke. :(
11:42:47 <RebelBotanist> Yay!! Got one right!
11:43:07 <JarnoO> Bulger
11:43:37 <JarnoO> b1 done
11:43:45 <JarnoO> 2nd unlikely at Ā±12m
11:43:55 <Forestbewithyou> Speaking of which it looks like Graham caught part of a bulger minor series
11:45:31 <JarnoO> appears Q
11:45:41 <JarnoO> G1Q | 11m07s
11:45:41 <SantaFe108> yeah
11:49:08 <Eric> Yes, but wild blueberries and huckleberries are quite a bit different, most people don't realize that.
11:49:55 <RebelBotanist> People like berry food and tend not to notice big plant differences. Overall, people are pretty plant blind.
11:50:01 <Eric> You will be inundated and get to keep up on all your latin if you join that group :-P
11:50:32 <RebelBotanist> I'm off Facebook for personal reasons for a bit, but as soon as I get back on they're the first add.
11:51:01 <Eric> But watch out, if you mention an invasive with your head!
11:51:22 <Eric> well, they kindly ask you to remove your invasives from their group.
11:51:25 <RebelBotanist> Not if I'm studying them!
11:51:41 <Eric> It's a wildflower group, not an invasive species group
11:51:53 <Eric> You would have to start your own invasive FB group :-P
11:52:08 <RebelBotanist> General rule is invasives are bad, but if you post their impact on natives you're usually Gucci.
11:52:34 <Eric> Sometimes the difference between invasives and wild are sooo minute.
11:52:59 <RebelBotanist> And natives can act invasively!
11:53:23 <Eric> not sure that is possible :-D If they are native, they are not invading :-D
11:53:46 <Eric> But I know what you mean
11:53:56 <Eric> Alright...errand time...bbl
11:54:06 <SantaFe108> cya Eric
11:54:11 <Michael> I use the word "aggressive" to describe those native plants.
11:54:16 <Eric> BTW, I get a ton of alpine flora...which I LOVE!
11:54:28 <RebelBotanist> That's also a favored term!!
11:54:30 <Eric> yes, aggressive is fine for those.
11:54:42 <RebelBotanist> I'm in love with Campunala!
11:54:45 <SantaFe108> Where I am is alot of invasive mustard and it kills everything
11:55:20 <Eric> I love Pussy Paw - Cistanthe
11:55:39 <RebelBotanist> You can have a satisfying day pulling a lot, but the seed bank is hard to delete.
11:55:49 <Michael> I live in the land of Amur honeysuckle. Everything else is fighting for second place until Japanese buckthorn gets here...
11:55:50 <SantaFe108> but in the mountains there is a lot of silver lupine and Oregon sunshine which are pretty
11:56:52 <RebelBotanist> Oooof, I feel that deeply... Invasives suck.
11:57:28 <Eric> I love alpine lupine too...fields of it in the blast zone of Mount Saint Helens.
11:58:04 <RebelBotanist> There's a lot in Iceland. I loved it! And there are so many lupine species!
11:58:15 <Eric>
11:58:20 <Eric> Ok...really gotta go now!
11:58:27 <Michael> See you Eric.
11:58:29 <SantaFe108> cya eric!
11:58:39 <RebelBotanist> Hnnng and bye!
11:59:22 <JarnoO> cya Eric
12:05:44 <LindaG> I did not
12:06:23 <Michael> I see hints of steam over Artemisia.
12:07:18 <JarnoO> :daisy:
12:07:51 <RebelBotanist> How are the butterflies?
12:08:16 <Rustic> Daisy
12:08:41 <LindaG> Me? I have two females that are having trouble maintaining altitude
12:09:05 <LindaG> Sometimes if I keep overnight then they are ok
12:09:43 <RebelBotanist> So are they coming in again? And dumb orientation question, we're aimed at Daisy, yes?
12:10:00 <Katie> Yes - Daisy
12:10:03 <LindaG> Yes that's daisy
12:10:11 <RebelBotanist> Thanks!!
12:10:34 <Forestbewithyou> Yo necesito ir a mi clase de espaƱol ahora... Audios todos
12:10:48 <Forestbewithyou> :)
12:10:51 <LindaG> RebelBotanist, yes I took back in, I'll try again. If not tomorrow.
12:11:17 <JarnoO> wind is now favorable for Giantess

12:14:34 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> It seems to like me
12:14:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Saw two hummingbirds last night Linda
12:15:42 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, nice, i saw one this afternoon, so not gone yet
12:16:32 <LindaG> I escorted 5 chipmunks off my property and it was quiet. Yesterday I had two more šŸ˜³
12:16:45 <RebelBotanist> They're still active in Maryland and have been feeding on my parent's suet feeder.
12:17:08 <LindaG> RebelBotanist, hummingbirds or chipmunks?
12:17:15 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> You need HK to come to your place Linda.
12:17:25 <LindaG> Lol
12:17:26 <RebelBotanist> Hummingbirds, shoulda specified šŸ¤Ŗ
12:18:05 <LindaG> RebelBotanist, I've never seen a hummingbird feed off of suet, so I thought maybe an adventurous chipmunk
12:18:40 <LindaG> One chipmgotta into the outside wall and was chewing
12:18:54 <LindaG> *chip got
12:18:57 <RebelBotanist> To be fair, this is my dad birding with post chemo brain šŸ™ƒ

12:19:57 <LindaG> RebelBotanist, as long as he enjoys himself
12:20:30 <LindaG> I never really thought about hummingbirds and suet, I guess its possible
12:21:03 <RebelBotanist> Tiny seeds for tiny beaks!
12:21:24 <LindaG> I'll have to Google it
12:21:36 <JarnoO> N rim
12:21:38 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ>
12:21:39 <LindaG> Lots of birds improvise
12:22:22 <RebelBotanist> That's why I love crows and Ravens!
12:22:35 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, hehehe my sister gave her boyfriend one, they are pretty funny
12:25:06 <JarnoO> N rim
12:25:09 <JarnoO> fairly strong
12:26:16 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I wonder if I could do one of these for a bobcat.
12:30:52 <JarnoO> N rim
12:30:53 <JarnoO> strong
12:31:17 <JarnoO> wow... am kinda surprised it didn't go on that one
12:31:33 <Pocket> Keep an eye on it.
12:31:41 <Pocket> It sometimes takes several.
12:32:12 <JarnoO> at least the wind has calmed down a touch, so fingers crossed
12:32:16 <5757> Viewer on bench started sitting up straighter then
12:33:18 <Pocket> That would warrant a note at least.
12:33:38 <Pocket> Looked to be about 1ft tall and 4-5ft wide and sustained.
12:36:27 <JarnoO> still little participation from the SW rim, though. Not that it's needed
12:36:30 <JarnoO> Dome ie static
12:37:19 <Pocket> Now the age old question: is Dome reacting to Giantess or vice versa.
12:37:25 <SantaFe108> hello forest
12:37:29 <JarnoO> is also initial
12:37:34 <Forestbewithyou> Hello
12:37:45 <Forestbewithyou> Or should I say HOLA!!!!
12:38:00 <JarnoO> Kevin, could you include Dome in this view as well?
12:38:58 <RebelBotanist> Dumb question, what leads to the assumption/knowledge (sorry if bad phrasing) that Dome and Giantess react to one another?
12:39:26 <Pocket> Most things on the hill are connected to Giantess.
12:39:39 <Pocket> When Giantess does... just about anything... other things will respond.
12:39:46 <Pocket> will = can
12:39:47 <Katie> I don't think there is such an assumption, with regard to the view request - but Dome is in eruption, we can see it on the static cam
12:40:49 <Pocket> Beehive in particular has been seen to have a connection with Giantess, even heavy boiling spells can affect Beehive.
12:40:55 <JarnoO> my thinking is that Dome and Giantess are related to, but not dependent on the action of one another
12:42:07 <Pocket> It would not be a stretch if an initial eruption of Dome trigger boiling in Giantess given the current state of affairs. Or vice versa
12:42:08 <5757> Pocket - is that because it's a stronger connection, or just because BH is so well-observed?
12:42:44 <JarnoO> or, rather, not fully dependent on what each of them does. It's imaginable that an exchange of function to Dome could adversely affect the overall activity of Giantess, but I have my doubts it's the only reason why Giantess does this or that
12:42:47 <Pocket> BH was obsevred to respond to Giantess in the 1990s, specifically during a dormancy BH erupted repeated after Giantess was induced into heavy boiling spells.
12:42:53 <5757> I would guess that the actual connection is just as strong with other nearby features
12:43:21 <LindaG> ,monarchs on the way to mexico
12:43:40 <Pocket> To lesser data points, BH has been observed to have measurably taller and more powerful eruptions when Giantess shows signs of life (June 2014 comes to mind).
12:43:44 <5757> we just don't have nearly as much data about eruptions of (for example) LS, or for that matter dome
12:44:01 <JarnoO> one of those induced Giantess boiling episodes actually induced an eruption in May 1990
12:44:10 <Pocket> It very well could be, 5757.
12:44:32 <JarnoO> so 5 kilograms of dry ice might've been a bit too much for Giantess to not erupt
12:44:57 <Pocket> I think the inductions were attempts to prove the connection. The giantess eruption was an unexpected bonus.
12:45:23 <Pocket> I know the person who did it was stunned to feel the thumping, haha.
12:50:13 <Pocket> The odd recent behavior by Beehive also suggestions a connection of some sort.
12:50:31 <RebelBotanist> So, presumably they're connected via plumbing, potentially along joints in the rock. Has anyone mapped the joints and faulting?
12:50:41 <Michael> What odd recent behavior by Beehive?
12:51:19 <Pocket> Intervals on GT show Beehive erupting at either 24 or 48 hour intervals, with almost nothing in between.
12:51:40 <Pocket> Given those were in day time, I am not sure we are missing any night ones.
12:52:34 <Pocket> RebelBotanist, not sure if the Hill was mapped. Some features are located on fractures that are visible on the surface because the features are in a straight line.
12:52:58 <Pocket> Also, has anyone else noticed that there are no large permanent features in the middle of the Hill
12:53:27 <Pocket> Its only on the outside edges...
12:54:21 <Michael> There's a nice article about Beehive's diurnal tendencies in Transactions I. It's a strange behavior but not a new one.
12:54:58 <Pocket> I should have been more specific. That behavior seemed to develop very suddenly after quite a while of consistent behavior.
12:55:06 <RebelBotanist> Would there be any features where fractures aren't visible from the boardwalk due to viewing angles (I haven't had enough time to look at that between getting exercised between geysers).
12:55:45 <Pocket> Its only strange in that its recent - not unheard of.
12:55:56 <Michael> Going for a walk. That should be enough to get Beehive going at least.
12:56:22 <Pocket> RebelBotanist, yes. Nor are the fractures always linear.
12:57:03 <RebelBotanist> Has anyone flown a government sponsored UAV or a flight over the hill at high enough resolution to see fractures?
12:57:08 <Pocket> I do believe you and Ryan saw one from the air in Norris last October. Northern extent of Porcelain Basin?
12:57:44 <RebelBotanist> Oh you are right! Now I'm gonna have to check the resolution on that.
12:58:01 <RebelBotanist> I generally enjoy remote sensing and the like A LOT.
12:58:39 <Pocket> Anything like that would have been visible on the Hill. I dont think any aerial photos showed any fractures or joints on the Hill that were not already known.
13:00:07 <RebelBotanist> I guess that's when seismo data or ground penetrating radar have a place, but I just have horrid visions of plopping through the crust with a for and boiling away
13:01:08 <Pocket> The central part of the Hill between Sponge, Giantess, Plume, and Depression is a large corroded sponge. There is no boardwalk there because there is no solid ground.
13:01:28 <smoke> What did they learn with all the boxes they had out in the last year or 2? Locked up in some research lab I am sure.
13:01:56 <Pocket> Several features have recently broken out near (or almost under) the BW by Sponge.
13:02:08 <Pocket> Smoke, that data was compiled into a report on OF.
13:03:02 <smoke> The Bison know where it is safe to walk.
13:03:39 <Pocket> RebelBotanist, the area near Sponge has several features either buried over or sintered over. Every so often a new one opens up. Soemtimes violently via a steam explosion. Usually gradually (like the thing in Nov 2018)
13:04:46 <RebelBotanist> Do certain areas make new features more often?
13:05:02 <Pocket> Yes.
13:05:44 <Pocket> The region around Sponge, Doublet, and Aurum over to Giantess routinely does. Not sure when the last time something new broke out outside of that region of the hill. Likely Plume's second vent in 1972.
13:06:16 <Pocket> The Dwarves may also be that way but we dont pay enough attention.
13:06:25 <JarnoO> not GHG-14, Pocket?
13:06:29 <RebelBotanist> And presumably that correlates with better piping (feel free to correct my terminology)? But that area is just a spongey thing, ya?
13:06:35 <smoke> Norris are has all kinds of stuff
13:06:55 <Pocket> JarnoO, I lose track of the numbers. Which one is that?
13:06:56 <5757> as does Myriad
13:07:24 <Pocket> Yes, Norris is notorious for being extremely variable. Porcelain in particular changes at very high rates.
13:07:33 <JarnoO> GHG-14 is a feature west of Plume, near the Plume end of the railing
13:07:36 <RebelBotanist> Do those have abundant visible fractures? I didn't even think to look
13:08:03 <JarnoO> not sure exactly when it developed, but 2013 floats around in my head
13:08:04 <RebelBotanist> Sorry if I'm asking dumb questions.
13:08:20 <SantaFe108> not dumb at all
13:08:23 <Pocket> Ah, I wasn't aware that was "new". I thought those holes were already there and have just gotten more energy after Plume died.
13:08:37 <JarnoO> I can check for you
13:08:59 <Pocket> Please do. I was under the impression that area was still fairly stable all things considered.
13:10:14 <JarnoO> per Geysers of Yellowstone, 5th ed.: "UNNG-GHG-14 is a jagged hole a few feet to the left of Plume Geyser (14). In an area where erupting springs have come and gone repeatedly through the years, its development began during 2015."
13:10:28 <JarnoO> no idea where 2013 came from, maybe that was GHG-13
13:10:57 <Pocket> Huh, I vaguely remember that hole in 2009.
13:11:29 <Pocket> Maybe it was another hole.
13:11:36 <JarnoO> maybe that was another feature that was later geyserited over
13:11:57 <Pocket> Even still, that zone is variable. Plume was just an expression. Albeit a large one.
13:12:19 <JarnoO> I guess the area around Plume is also a feature-prone area, as is the Dwarfs perhaps
13:12:54 <Pocket> Odd such a large feature managed to develop there and then stop like that.
13:13:30 <Pocket> All the other large features on the hill capable of erupting like Plume at least show signs of having been around a long while even if their behavior is extremely erratic.
13:14:27 <RebelBotanist> As a mapaholic, it would really be cool to see a heat map of feature formation frequencies. But then i guess that gets to the question of "what's new versus a new expression of an old feature?*
13:14:42 <JarnoO> probably developed under just the right circumstances. Perhaps Plume's plumbing had existed for a long time already, but had become much less active before it was tightly packed in by other activity unrelated to that
13:15:26 <Pocket> JarnoO, that both vents developed during steam explosions is interesting. Must have been well sealed over. RebelBotanist, I think most everything is an expression of old features.
13:15:28 <RebelBotanist> Would activity be sinter deposition or the small earthquakes jiggling the innards?
13:17:07 <Pocket> Long term energy shifts which cause a feature to stop erupting allow the vents at the surface to dry out, decay and crumble, and be filled in. In the case of plume with Giantess' runoff going over it I could see the loose fill being sintered over.
13:17:34 <Pocket> Similar to the Sloth Chandelier, RebelBotanist. I've seen that photo.
13:17:58 <RebelBotanist> I want a sloth chandelier...
13:18:25 <Pocket> I left out the first word. I believe Ryan's photo calls it the Sh*****g Sloth Chandelier.
13:18:39 <RebelBotanist> Ohhhhhhhh that's me...
13:19:00 <RebelBotanist> Gotta ruin non bulb photos
13:19:42 <Pocket> Thermal features can sinter over the same way that loose conglomerate was cemented by flowstone.
13:19:57 <Pocket> Except thermal features are pressurized.
13:20:33 <RebelBotanist> I have many more thoughts now...
13:21:04 <Pocket> Oh no. Send my apologies to Ryan.
13:21:42 <RebelBotanist> Hehehe, and who's the human behind the name pocket? šŸ˜‹
13:22:08 <Pocket> Not someone you have met.
13:22:29 <RebelBotanist> Facebook know?
13:23:19 <Pocket> Don't believe so. I just have looked through Ryan's flickr several times. The Chandelier photo stuck out.
13:24:18 <RebelBotanist> It's how I entertain myself underground šŸ¤Ŗ
13:25:24 <Pocket> The photos which show geology are my favorites of his.
13:25:40 <Pocket> The ones with the stop sign cielings are cool
13:26:42 <RebelBotanist> The magical visual overlap between mud cracks and baggage
13:26:47 <RebelBotanist> BASALT
13:28:27 <Pocket> Do you keep him in line down there?
13:29:11 <RebelBotanist> The answer is very much yes and very much no. I am a chaos agent.
13:30:27 <Pocket> Atta girl.
13:32:07 <smoke> Loose change is a proven feature killer.
13:32:08 <Pocket> So why the Rebel Botanist?
13:33:24 <Pocket> Ope. Gotta run. Nice talking everyone.
13:34:20 <smoke> Rebel Botanist's claim smoking that a large leaf causes cancer, while smoking a small leaf cures everything.
13:35:11 <JarnoO> Castle ie
13:38:15 <RebelBotanist> I have claimed this... But botanist by passion and career, and rebel because I'm not a normal geyser human commodity from what I've gathered.
13:38:22 <Forestbewithyou> I will brb
13:38:38 <SantaFe108> cya jarno and forest
13:39:05 <LindaG> There is no normal here šŸ˜Š
13:40:01 <RebelBotanist> I ask not the normal questions, like science too much, and can get overwhelmed by some geyserland drama
13:40:24 <LindaG> But I guess I should only speak for myself lol
13:41:54 <Pocket> Try not to lean into it too far. Most everyone has good hearts.
13:41:55 <RebelBotanist> That's all we can soak for!
13:41:58 <Pocket> (I have not left yet.)
13:42:10 <RebelBotanist> SOAK DAM PHONE
13:42:16 <RebelBotanist> SPRAK
13:42:23 <RebelBotanist> SPEAK.
13:42:40 <Pocket> You and Linda must be related.

13:43:28 <RebelBotanist> It's been a lifelong problem...
13:45:28 <SantaFe108 mobi> Castle doing alot better than last time
13:46:48 <LindaG> RebelBotanist, I feel for you
13:47:21 <LindaG> My excuse is cause I'm on a tablet
13:48:01 <RebelBotanist (> I'm fine on a keyboard, but swiping is a pain. My phone doesn't learn Hope-isms fast enough, and it doesn't keep up with scientific terms enough. Oh, and I'm sloppy swiping I guess?
13:48:25 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Computer or drug Linda?
13:48:39 <SantaFe108 mobi> lol
13:48:48 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, šŸ˜³
13:48:57 <LindaG> Lol
13:49:08 <SantaFe108 mobi> does anyone remember the day of the start of the lindavitis outbreak in this chat
13:49:19 <SantaFe108 mobi> korben misspelled linda like 10 times in a row
13:50:13 <LindaG> SantaFe108 mobile, probably the day I started as camop šŸ˜‹
13:51:08 <SantaFe108> would be nice to find it
13:51:19 <LindaG> Although I think Dave started it
13:51:32 <RebelBotanist (> I once texted Yeasty 12 times when I was trying to type YAY!
13:51:58 <LindaG> RebelBotanist (Computer), lol
13:52:00 <SantaFe108> Dave's car started a war with the deer
13:52:40 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Dave was indeed the first. Davespeak was the term.
13:53:12 <LindaG> RebelBotanist (Computer), for a while I had English and French keyboard. But French kept getting turned on by accident. So auto correct was in french.
13:53:12 <SantaFe108> davespeak and lindavitis same? we need to do the research
13:53:36 <LindaG> SantaFe108, I think sošŸ˜Š
13:53:49 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, this castle was a lot better than the last one
13:54:24 <RebelBotanist (> Don't hit deer with government vehicles! And LindaG, that's awesome! I took a lot of French in high school, but I'm working on Rosetta Stone Spanish to visit my friends in Cuba for work!
13:54:51 <SantaFe108> can we peek sprinkler
13:54:59 <JarnoO> SF, it already looked better from the first time we saw it ie
13:55:27 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, true
13:55:33 <LindaG> RebelBotanist (Computer), that's great. The French drove Joe crazy and I finally figured out how to un-install
13:56:24 <SantaFe108> wow sprinkler is off, suprising
13:56:34 <SantaFe108> or is it very short
13:56:38 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I have been known to speak French to some of my mechanical items.
13:56:50 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, šŸ˜„
13:58:41 <RebelBotanist (> Mechanical items like Wookie screams, I've learned.
13:59:18 <SantaFe108> if we catch sprinkler from the start ill be impressed
13:59:29 <LindaG> I'm good on a regular keyboard
13:59:52 <LindaG> SantaFe108, I dont see it at all
14:00:26 <SantaFe108> LindaG, hoping to see it from the start instead of ie like usuall
14:00:44 <JarnoO> Sprinkler
14:00:52 <SantaFe108> :)
14:01:02 <LindaG> Waiting
14:01:23 <LindaG> The remit is
14:01:33 <LindaG> Yikes
14:01:39 <LindaG> There it is
14:01:41 <SantaFe108> nice job sprinkler :thumbsup:
14:04:08 <SantaFe108> nice job daisy
14:18:38 <Kat> Hi all!
14:18:46 <JarnoO> hi again Kat
14:19:05 <SantaFe108> hi Kat
14:20:09 <Kat> Hi - went to doc - probable torn rotator cuff! MRI next! :(
14:21:02 <JarnoO> ouch
14:21:29 <RebelBotanist (> Oh no, busted shoulders suck.
14:22:18 <Kat> Indeed- fell awhile back coming up my deck steps! Don't like the thought of surgery - but the everyday pain stinks!
14:23:16 <Kat> State of FL has a new law - they will only give 3 days of pain meds! Seems mean to me!
14:24:28 <JarnoO> probably done to combat medication abuse
14:24:50 <Kat> I get it - but it makes everyone else suffer!
14:25:05 <LindaG> Kat, Jersey was cracking Down also, people that really need it cant get it
14:25:21 <Kat> sucks!
14:25:37 <JarnoO> splish splash
14:25:54 <Kat> The thing is they have a registry so they can identify abusers easily!
14:26:34 <Kat> Well, I've put up with it for awhile -I'll be OK
14:26:38 <JarnoO> apparantly such registry wasn't enough. Else I reckon that law would never have been heard of
14:27:18 <Kat> Don't make me go off on the state of FL! Hahaha
14:27:49 <Kat> Can't wait to move from place!!
14:28:39 <Kat> I'm gonna move North so I can go birding with Linda Hahaha
14:29:17 <LindaG> Kat, šŸ˜ƒwhoohoo
14:29:25 <Kat> Less smoke I see - a good thing
14:29:46 <Kat> LindaG, I can just hop on the ferry and meet you!
14:30:18 <Kat> The FL heat is too much for me
14:31:01 <LindaG> Kat, that would be fun
14:31:37 <LindaG> Kat, I'd never survive down there
14:33:21 <Kat> Barely hanging on some day! I sooo miss the seasons
14:35:28 <LindaG> Yeah just when you are sick of one season the next one comes along
14:36:17 <JarnoO> conewalkers on Giantess?
14:36:26 <JarnoO> or are they authorized?
14:36:37 <LindaG> Oh dear yes
14:36:41 <SantaFe108> can we check
14:36:49 <LindaG> We are usually told
14:36:54 <5757> that's a crazy spot
14:37:06 <SantaFe108> that is super fragile area
14:37:06 <JarnoO> maybe give the VEC a call, they should know who's allowed and who isn't
14:37:18 <SantaFe108> seconded
14:37:28 <Kat> Zoom
14:37:37 <SantaFe108> hm
14:37:37 <RebelBotanist (> Just popping back from coding, as far as opiods go after shoulder surgery, I only got 4 days of medication for repairing my torn labrum. BUT they did give me a TENS unit for electrostimulation pain removal. That worked wonders!!!
14:37:54 <Kat> We would have gotten notice if they are doing something officia;
14:38:14 <JarnoO> looks like they are authorized personell. They were off the boardwalk a few weeks earlier at Bee and LC
14:38:22 <LindaG> They are authorized
14:38:27 <LindaG> I called
14:38:33 <SantaFe108> :thumbsup:
14:38:41 <Kat> WE didn't get a notice - they woud have taken the cam
14:38:48 <LindaG> But they did have vests
14:38:52 <JarnoO> now, wouldn't it be funny if Giantess were to suddenly start
14:39:11 <5757> bet thumps would get their attention
14:39:12 <JarnoO> (yes, I have a dark type of humor)
14:40:09 <Kat> OK - should have gotten notice hough
14:40:19 <LindaG> Kat, agree
14:40:48 <JarnoO> maybe it's different under the new superintendent
14:40:52 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, you think it would be like Langford's description of them running down the hill
14:41:04 <Kat> Maybe someone did something earlier and they are checking it out???
14:41:29 <Kat> Bad example for folks on the BW
14:41:45 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> VEC was aware.
14:42:42 <JarnoO> that I agree with, Kat, but you have to do your research in one way or another. In chilly winter it wouldn't be feasible I think
14:44:04 <LindaG> They do look official
14:44:23 <JarnoO> I wonder what they're doing there in the first place. Are they just looking or actually grabbing samples or so? Or is it USGS mapping of rock types?
14:44:58 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I assume they are looking at changes since the last eruption
14:45:49 <Kat> I sent an e-mail to Dave Krueger and Carolyn to let them know we were not notified. Miscommunication I'm sure
14:47:02 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They probably weren't aware Kat. Not uncommon for this to happen.
14:47:14 <Kat> Are these the folks you saw?
14:47:31 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> No
14:47:38 <Katie> Thanks for calling, Linda. I think best to error on side of reporting.
14:47:47 <JarnoO> they're still at Giantess I think
14:47:57 <Kat> Yep - thanks
14:48:12 <SantaFe108> nice spalsh aurum
14:48:22 <Kat> :)
14:48:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Got the attention of the Ranger.

15:06:13 <LindaG> CraigC, that's what happens to me. First I reboot and if that doesnt work I reinstall
15:06:50 <CraigC> :(
15:06:57 <SantaFe108> does it not update when you refresh it swiping down?
15:07:16 <JarnoO> for me the problem usually resolves itself after a while. Just means I don't have the latest data for some time before it finally stops reporting a syncing error
15:09:12 <SantaFe108> im glad the app allows you to log entries offline and have them show up when you get internet, very helpful when I had no cell in UGB
15:10:34 <CraigC> It finally loaded wooohooo
15:11:01 <LindaG> šŸ˜ƒ
15:11:05 <SantaFe108> CraigC, šŸ„³šŸ„³šŸ„³šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰šŸŽ‰
15:12:04 <Kat> Yeah!!!
15:15:02 <Eric> Back for Giantess!
15:15:27 <JarnoO> Teddy 120kt (low-mid-end cat.4), +15kt from last advisory
15:16:02 <JarnoO> now forecast to be a high-end cat.4 by 12 hours
15:16:36 <JarnoO> but wouldn't be surprised if it were to intensify into a low-end cat. 5 by that time
15:17:25 <LindaG> Eric, wb
15:17:41 <SantaFe108> hi Eric
15:18:02 <JarnoO> Aurum

15:19:26 <LindaG> Wow 2 aurums for kevin
15:19:48 <Eric> and again...I just missed Aurum :-P
15:19:52 <Craig M> aurums cuts off so abruptly
15:20:09 <Eric> Thanks for the rewind Jarno
15:20:26 <Eric> I can't even remember your original nickname on here now :-D
15:21:01 <SantaFe108> what do you mmean
15:21:12 <CraigC> 99999999999999
15:21:19 <Eric> Jarno started off with a nick like yours SF
15:21:23 <SantaFe108> craig are you alright
15:21:27 <Eric> Hi Craig
15:21:56 <Eric> Dome?
15:21:57 <CraigC> Eric, hey man
15:22:01 <LindaG> Eric, oh that's right he did and then we switched to real names
15:22:04 <Eric> ahh, we are in series
15:22:29 <Eric> Craig, great video footage of SB my friend
15:22:47 <CraigC> Eric, thanks
15:23:32 <Eric> I saw a video from Decker...that has to be one of the best SB I have ever seen
15:23:37 <CraigC> 3c in berserk mode
15:23:44 <JarnoO> nice
15:23:48 <SantaFe108> who pissed it off?
15:24:02 <Eric> Can we spin to Mug?
15:24:21 <CraigC> Seems 3c is crazy when mug isnt erupting
15:24:23 <Eric> Haven't caught one in a while
15:24:29 <SantaFe108> feels like its been days since we've looked at myriads
15:24:32 <SantaFe108> hello Mario
15:24:41 <Eric> Hi Mario
15:24:53 <Mario> Hi SantaFe and Eric
15:25:09 <Mario> And everyone šŸ˜„
15:25:15 <CraigC> 3c usually only does the crazy bursts the first few at the start of a new set
15:25:37 <Eric> camop MIA or loves the Hill :-D
15:25:50 <Eric> No crazy 3c for us
15:25:53 <SantaFe108> kevin?
15:26:05 <Eric> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
15:26:22 <Mario> Any fun going on the Hill today? Is BH quiet today?
15:26:37 <CraigC> They are just small bursts now
15:26:41 <SantaFe108> Mario, giantess boiling alot
15:27:51 <CraigC> I'll head back down basin in a few mins
15:27:58 <Eric> Yes, Giantess seems ready to go
15:28:22 <SantaFe108> sponkler
15:28:59 <CraigC> Sponkler maj ini?
15:29:06 <5757> sponkler is a great geyser name
15:29:11 <Mario> Awesome
15:29:28 <Mario> Go Giantess!
15:29:33 <SantaFe108> CraigC, yes make sure to cover your car ;)
15:29:59 <CraigC> My truck has a new coating of sb
15:30:18 <SantaFe108> rip
15:30:35 <JarnoO> Craig, it looks like Grotto has been ie at all times I've seen it thusfar. Might be marathon
15:31:08 <SantaFe108> the marathons are all rigged grotto wins every time
15:32:53 <CraigC> Some decent spa action this morning, but never saw any huge bursts
15:33:20 <SantaFe108> CraigC, ive never seen spa what is it like
15:33:34 <Craig M> Like the best geyser in yellowstone imo
15:33:38 <CraigC> Seemed to be winding down same time as riverside erption
15:34:18 <CraigC> Craig M, yeah, it is fun to be so close to something so explosive
15:34:47 <Craig M> Spa to tree height is crazy to behold
15:35:57 <SantaFe108> if I want to see spa what should I look for?
15:36:11 <Eric> Water erupting from the ground SantaFe
15:36:31 <CraigC> Lol
15:36:39 <SantaFe108> Eric, i figured that
15:36:46 <JarnoO> This is fun:
15:36:48 <CraigC> Both vents boiling
15:36:59 <JarnoO> "NPS also installed a logger today."
15:37:06 <SantaFe108> :O
15:38:11 <CraigC> Maybe they will install one at fm, too. Wgere2are they now?
15:38:28 <JarnoO> so might just be they have a new logger person
15:38:53 <Eric> ohhh, new logger!
15:39:24 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> If he got Aurum would that make him a lucky logger?
15:39:33 <Craig M> @SantaFe if grotto is in marathon check the water levels of Spa
15:39:40 <JarnoO> he did find the gold, Kevin :)
15:39:51 <SantaFe108> Craig M, got it :thumbsup:
15:40:28 <Craig M> Giantess looking relatively calm right now
15:41:01 <JarnoO> there was a windy spell a few minutes ago. Probably cooled the pool by a few degrees
15:41:26 <Katie> Dome
15:41:52 <Eric> I have a hard time believing that a heat source like giantess could be highly affected by the wind.
15:42:02 <Craig M> My thoughts exactly
15:42:15 <JarnoO> person off the boardwalk at Dep, already on boardwalk
15:42:32 <Eric> If anything, I would think it would help with surface tension.
15:42:35 <SantaFe108> :(
15:42:41 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Did you see the first train over the bridge Eric?
15:42:44 <JarnoO> I guess they're doing a logger roundup of some sorts
15:42:52 <Eric> Yes...the ballast train :-D
15:43:09 <Eric> I saw the second one too, on track 75 with 5 power units
15:43:22 <Eric> Also saw the first KCS train over track 74 :-D
15:43:32 <Eric> am I nerdy now :-D
15:43:51 <SantaFe108> arent we all
15:43:57 <Eric> I know the difference between track 74 & 75 :-D
15:44:01 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I thought it was funny that one of the first group over was a UP rail train.
15:44:28 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> But where are track 13 & 14?
15:46:12 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> It brought back a lot of memories. We would do night work a lot on crossings a lot so as not to mess up traffic.
15:53:39 <JarnoO> 3C
15:59:10 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Controls released
15:59:49 <SantaFe108> thanks kevin
16:01:54 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Great timing. The BNSF Heritage unit just went by on Santa Fe Juntion cam 1!
16:02:06 <SantaFe108> :O
16:02:47 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Led by 2 KCS and a BNSF SD40 tailing it
16:02:59 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, nice mix of units
16:03:29 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> New Heritage unit. First time I have seen it.
16:03:39 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, me too
16:06:27 <Rustic> :daisy:
16:06:48 <SantaFe108> nice job daisy :thumbsup:
16:07:09 <Eric> margarita!
16:07:37 <Eric> Where is our RebelBotanist when we need her :-P
16:08:40 <Forestbewithyou> AHH I AM DONE FOR TODAY!!!
16:09:03 <Eric> Nice...congrats Forest
16:10:33 <SantaFe108> good job Foresdt
16:11:21 <Craig M> I hate watching the UPS truck circle my house
16:12:26 <KorbenC> Done with work today.
16:12:39 <SantaFe108> good job Korbem
16:12:46 <Forestbewithyou> Congrats Korben
16:13:07 <KorbenC> OK, Ill press the Giantess button next time its in view :D
16:13:29 <JarnoO> Korben, Forest, Teddy low to mid-end cat. 4 at 120kt
16:13:39 <JarnoO> up 15kt from previous advisory
16:13:56 <KorbenC> JarnoO, :thumbsup:
16:14:04 <KorbenC> I see the other one is still 90/90
16:14:12 <SantaFe108> lion had a little spritz
16:14:35 <JarnoO> probably will be Twenty-Two tomorrow if not this evening
16:14:59 <Forestbewithyou> Thanks Jarno
16:15:01 <KorbenC> Dome
16:16:17 <Mario> Korben youā€™re the best! 30, 29, 28...
16:17:37 <KorbenC> If it works
16:17:42 <KorbenC> I will roll over dead
16:17:57 <SantaFe108> how much time do we have left
16:18:02 <KorbenC> none
16:18:12 <KorbenC> dangit, I thought that might have worked :P
16:18:31 <SantaFe108> maybe it needs time for the button's signal to travel from CO to ynp
16:18:39 <JarnoO> you first need to decrease the overall wind before you press the button
16:18:45 <JarnoO> it's like a puzzle
16:19:07 <SantaFe108> I know we need to press the wind button to toggle off
16:19:10 <KorbenC> OMG, my dad just introduced me to "Chicken in a biscit crackers" I am going to go into a joyfull comatose, that is the best cracker I have ever had.
16:19:30 <Forestbewithyou> Nice
16:19:34 <KorbenC> It does seem like it tried to go around 1231
16:19:41 <Splendid> Great mix of salt and sugar on them.
16:20:06 <SantaFe108> hello lc
16:20:25 <Mario> Those crackers are addicting once you get started
16:20:43 <SantaFe108> chicken in a biscuit is a gateway cracker!
16:21:02 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Good crackers.
16:21:54 <Eric> haha, I love chicken in a biscuit and my wife hates for me :-D
16:22:17 <KorbenC> The box is almost empty :P
16:22:27 <Eric> chicken in a biscuit, summer sausage and some good english cheddar stacked up is so yummy!
16:22:36 <JarnoO> Kevin, maybe you found a purpose for that male hen. Homemade chicken in a biscuit :)
16:22:48 <KorbenC> Jarno, haha.
16:22:53 <Eric> That is chicken in a casket :-P
16:22:54 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Swiss is good also
16:23:23 <Eric> I do like swiss too, but English Coastal Cheddar FTW!
16:23:43 <SantaFe108> I bet all these pings make people think its giantess but when they come on its just yummy crackers
16:23:55 <Eric> haha
16:24:01 <Eric> very yummy crackers
16:24:06 <JarnoO> Giantess pings would be 11 closely spaced pings from me at least
16:24:08 <Eric> giantess hasn't gone yet!
16:24:17 <Eric> sorry to disppoint
16:24:23 <Eric> disappoint
16:24:33 <Mario> Giantess does seem to like Thursdays
16:24:59 <Mario> Oh and also Wednesdays
16:25:11 <Eric> Better then Wednesday for Sure!
16:25:19 <Katie> I can differentiate Giantess dings from chat dings, especially if Jarno is on. He rapid fires dots like a gatling gun
16:25:21 <Eric> Nobody likes Mondays
16:25:28 <JarnoO> haha, Katie
16:25:41 <Eric> haha, if giantess goes, we have multiple people rapid firing :-D
16:25:59 <SantaFe108> if Giantess goes it will sound like a warzone
16:26:18 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We stop here on the way to and the way back from Yellowstone.
16:26:25 <JarnoO> I found out that spacing pings too closely leads to the ping not being played, while spacing them too far makes it look like a regular conversation :)
16:26:49 <SantaFe108> we need a super ping
16:27:15 <KorbenC> If Giantess goes, im doing /alert, whatever that does :) If it even does anything/is real :P
16:27:28 <Forestbewithyou> Eric is about to throw a fit :)
16:28:13 <JarnoO> a train horn super ping would be fun :P
16:28:26 <SantaFe108> which horn would we use?
16:28:48 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Nathan P5
16:29:28 <JarnoO> I'd say one of the American ones. European horns are more like car horns but on steroids :)
16:30:28 <SantaFe108> I nominate a Leslie RS3L being the horn of Santa Fe #108 itself
16:31:39 <SantaFe108> hello Betty
16:31:41 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That would work.
16:32:05 <Betty> hi SantaFe108, Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, JarnoO, KorbenC, Forestbewithyou, Eric
16:32:06 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> A Cumbres & Toltec whistle would be good too.
16:32:12 <SantaFe108> next to Giantess they have to put a [W] sign :lol:
16:32:23 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> :)
16:32:39 <KorbenC> Hi Bettu
16:32:41 <KorbenC> Bettr

16:38:34 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, what a beefy whistle
16:42:31 <KorbenC> was it long or short? sorry, I had to go put the steak on
16:42:43 <JarnoO> long
16:42:48 <JarnoO> 1636:56
16:42:53 <KorbenC> thx JO
16:44:51 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy Grand and perhaps the Giantess

16:45:53 <SantaFe108> oh ok :thumbsup:
16:46:31 <Mario> Bye Jarno
16:46:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Ironically one of the derailed train cars has Yellowstone graffiti on it. They just showed a closeup.
16:46:59 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, what is on it?
16:50:53 <Eric> Nice Horn Kevin!
16:51:22 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Just says Yellowstone

16:54:01 <SantaFe108> air is poisonous in yosemite
16:54:04 <LindaG> šŸ˜’
16:54:21 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> No wonder. Look at the cam:
16:54:59 <Eric> Yep, looked like here a few days ago!
16:55:46 <KorbenC> SF, thx for doing GT while ive been working on school work.
16:55:54 <SantaFe108> KorbenC, np

17:08:56 <KorbenC> AB
17:10:59 <KorbenC> can we zoom on Giantess for a minute when we get a chance?
17:13:44 <Betty> grand
17:13:46 <KorbenC> Wow, spectacular timing
17:13:47 <SantaFe108> nice
17:15:33 <LindaG> šŸ˜Š
17:16:57 <Eric> Linda is Pro!
17:17:14 <Eric> We have taught her all we can, she is no longer a pad1 learner!
17:17:15 <LindaG> Not me
17:17:17 <Eric> padwan
17:17:24 <Eric> or whatever it is :-P
17:17:29 <Eric> ohh, who is driving?
17:17:45 <LindaG> Daven I think
17:17:58 <LindaG> *M
17:18:16 <Eric> ahh, he is like an old Jedi :-D
17:18:22 <Eric> Wise in his years.
17:18:36 <LindaG> Eric, a geyser zen master
17:18:43 <Eric> Exactly
17:18:50 <LindaG> šŸ˜Š
17:19:40 <Eric> BTW, if you are listening Dave, they are going to upgrade the streaming server we are using here to support Low Latency HLS, not sure of timeline yet.
17:20:04 <LindaG> Interesting that there are no #s
17:20:15 <Eric> I will probably cook up some new ffmpeg recipes for recording if people are interested
17:20:48 <LindaG> Ohhhh nice
17:20:57 <Eric> Yes, I like the forced name request we are using now
17:21:01 <LindaG> We love to record
17:21:22 <Eric> gives people an opportunity to personalize their name :-D
17:21:39 <Eric> or just type some random string of characters :-D
17:22:49 <LindaG> šŸ‘
17:22:58 <KorbenC> pause

18:18:22 <Betty> Dome ie
18:19:31 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
18:19:42 <SantaFe108> night Betty
18:19:45 <Mario> Night Betty
18:19:49 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> You sleep?
18:22:12 <smoke> Cactus, saw a program on pbs about the nuc tests. Is it convenient to be able to walk around at night with out needing a flash light? Dentist must not even need to use the xray machine to get an image on film.
18:24:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We even have a locomotive that was used there at the museum. Doesn't need a headlight:
18:27:32 <smoke> I believe the one they used in Idaho was covered in Lead. It was used for moving the airplane engines around. Yep they tried to make a nuclear jet.
18:32:47 <smoke> lc happy
18:33:25 <SantaFe108> probably trying to stir its father awake
18:37:38 <smoke> Cactus, here you go, a RR engine to move nuclear jet engines around.
18:38:56 <smoke> Rumor has it the russians actually got one to fly. No not a RR engine, a nuclear jet plane. Crashed as I recall.
18:39:12 <smoke> Nice pump

19:03:49 <KB> bee looks dead
19:07:33 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Lion looking happy
19:10:00 <Michael> I've been popping in and out most of the day. This might be the clearest I've seen it.
19:22:05 <KorbenC> Lion ini
19:22:40 <KorbenC> slow start, but it got there :)
19:22:44 <KorbenC> maybe
19:22:45 <KorbenC> yup
19:22:53 <SantaFe108> good job lion :thumbsup: :)
19:22:56 <Root> That geezer there going up
19:23:35 <SantaFe108> really nice one too
19:23:44 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Needs vitamins
19:24:01 <SantaFe108> which ones
19:25:17 <LindaG> Nice
19:25:39 <SantaFe108> that roar must sound nice from in basin
19:26:04 <KorbenC> Bryce, have ya ever seen an ini from the start in person?
19:26:21 <Forestbewithyou> Well played Lion
19:26:25 <Forestbewithyou> Well played
19:26:28 <SantaFe108> hm. ive seen multiple lions, but never stayed to watch them since I was rushed
19:26:55 <Forestbewithyou> I haven't :). I have seen an inital from about 30 sec-1 min in
19:27:13 <Forestbewithyou> But I can't believe Lion decided to erupt while I was getting ice cream
19:27:22 <SantaFe108> I found a video from 2017 that *might* be an ini on my phone
19:27:32 <SantaFe108> looks like steam phase
19:28:32 <SantaFe108> ill check what kind of Lion i saw the start on july 20th
19:29:03 <SantaFe108> it was not ini
19:30:07 <SantaFe108> brb
19:32:39 <SantaFe108 mobi> hi Laura
19:33:03 <KorbenC> Hey Laura
19:33:13 <Laura> Hello Korben
19:33:28 <Laura> Hello SF. Just missed Lion I see
19:35:22 <Laura> Looks like OF might go early?
19:35:45 <KorbenC> Laura, just initial preplay
19:36:03 <KorbenC> It is known to be able to erupt around 86 minutes, so it often has a bit of preplay near that point
19:37:03 <SantaFe108> .away
19:37:11 <SantaFe108> 2nd times the charm
19:37:53 <SantaFe108> KorbenC, what was that one time when OF kept stalling/delaying a bunch of times and then shorted?
19:38:29 <KorbenC> oh please dont remind me
19:38:55 <KorbenC> its was like 1100-1118 stall, 1118-1124 delay 1, 1124-1132 delay. 1133 Short :P
19:39:07 <Forestbewithyou> LOLLLLLLLLLL
19:39:20 <Forestbewithyou> ROTFL šŸ¤£šŸ˜„šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£
19:39:38 <Forestbewithyou> was this today?
19:39:47 <KorbenC> no
19:39:54 <Laura> Lordy we've got another fire in SoCal near palm springs with evacuations ordered....
19:39:56 <KorbenC> this was a few weeks ago
19:40:00 <SantaFe108> WHAT
19:40:39 <SantaFe108> youve got to be kidding me
19:40:59 <Laura> Broke out two hours ago, SF. I just looked at NWS San Diego twitter and they were retweeting from Riverside fire authorities
19:41:17 <Laura> grown to 500 acres in two hours....
19:42:25 <SantaFe108> Laura, jeeze just checked inceweb. :(
19:42:41 <SantaFe108> hope they can wrangle it
19:43:32 <Laura> Let's face it SF its gonna be a nasty fall.
19:43:48 <SantaFe108> no denying that :(
19:44:57 <Laura> Luckily most of the wild areas near me burned in the 2007 Santiago fire and the 2017 Holy Jim Fire so the fuel load isn't obscene.
19:45:29 <SantaFe108> theres a very flammable area right next to my house and so far it hasn't caught on fire
19:47:12 <KorbenC> that last OF preplay looks like delay
19:47:17 <KorbenC> like 5 or 6 minutes ago
19:47:26 <KorbenC> more like 10 minutes ago
19:47:38 <SantaFe108> dangit OF we are on SCHEDULE!!!

20:22:26 <LindaG> I can understand the lights on the hill but what are lights in the parking lot doing?
20:22:58 <RebelBotanist> Could it be wildlife spotting?

20:26:02 <LindaG> Those two lights on right may find each other šŸ˜‹
