08:09:21 <Forestbewithyou> Morning Linda
08:09:31 <KorbenC> linda, hi
08:12:51 <linda> Forestbewithyou, hi
08:23:01 <linda> Anyone need reservations for July 3-10 in the park?
08:24:39 <linda> I'm going to be cancelling some today. OF Frontier Cabin is with bath
08:37:09 <72> Linda is it possible to transfer or dos one have to hope to get yours by luck
08:38:12 <linda> I don't know if it can be transferred
08:38:41 <linda> But I figured if someone wants it we could coordinate cancelling and reserving
08:39:16 <72> thanks, I'll open the registration page and try
08:41:03 <linda> 72, I pm'd
08:55:09 <72> Thank you Linda it is done!! :)
08:58:43 <linda> :)
09:21:52 <I Like Geyserrs> One more year until the YNP Sesquicentennial !
10:29:16 <linda> OF
10:29:17 <linda> IE
11:11:23 <KorbenC> Weather looks good right now, hopefully that means a cam fix attempt today?
11:12:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Attempt failed. May be a while.
11:12:39 <KorbenC> Bah, what was the problem this time?
11:14:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Power didn't work.
11:15:30 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: Unfortunately, working with power usually means snow needs to go away.
11:26:04 <Ætna> just put a blowdrier on it, that'll do
11:26:09 <Ætna> :)
11:49:37 <I Like Geyserrs> At least the weather is good. Nice views from Washburn.
11:55:02 <LINDA> Did they try today? I notice earlier that the screen seemed to blink a bit, wondered if they were trying to fix
11:55:49 <KorbenC> Kevin said they had a failed attempt, maybe he was talking about last time, when they unplugged it?
11:56:25 <LINDA> yeah not sure, looks like a nice day for it
11:56:51 <LINDA> KorbenC, hubbie is coming home wed.
11:57:12 <KorbenC> I assumed that if Kevin knew about an attempt today, all cam op's would.
11:57:18 <KorbenC> Linda, that is great!
11:58:07 <LINDA> only if they cgeck their emails, which I didn't
11:58:10 <KorbenC> Either OF or some decent sized preplay.
11:58:40 <KorbenC> That would make more sense, also, am I the only one seeing your name in all caps?
11:59:17 <LINDA> So last week they tried but didn't work. So we are in for the long haul.
11:59:30 <LINDA> KorbenC, lol no
12:00:01 <linda> Wish for warm weather
12:00:21 <KorbenC> 25F right now, wtih about 23F wind chill a few miles away from OF.
12:56:38 <Ætna> Steamboat at eruptive temperature
12:56:47 <Ætna> maybe a Yellowstone birthday eruption if it feels like it
12:57:53 <Ætna> actually, 2°C less, but as it seems to rise by about 2°C every ±3h it should be near it anyway
12:59:52 <Ætna> at Nuphar temperature of 0°C just before noon
13:09:45 <Ætna> Constant itself appears to have developed an interesting pattern of 5 bulges followed by a steep temperature drop before the cycle repeats itself again. Curious is that this consisted of only 4 bulges before Whirligig went @ 0508:32 E. This was a long eruption inferred by data point count, so I wonder if Whirligig cut Constant's cycle short with that eruption
13:12:38 <Ætna> historically there is some evidence that Constant and Whirligig can influence each other's behavior, so I wouldn't be surprised if Whirligig did that by cutting Constant's cycle short
13:13:17 <Ætna> I should rephrase that - Constant was, historically, most active when Whirligig was
13:14:01 <Ætna> don't think the other way was true based on TGoY 5th, no mention of that
13:14:27 <Ætna> i.e. that Constant can influence Whirligig
13:16:48 <Ætna> Lion or Beehive steam at edge of frame
13:18:32 <Ætna> Beehive based on shadow cast
13:25:47 <dz> I'm sure this question has been asked, what is happening with the movable cam?
13:29:16 <Ætna> it tilted down again a few weeks ago. They tried to straighten it (and also something with housing or so), but some screw or so was too short. As it was cold and a snowstorm moved in they decided to leave it as-is and come back later. They tried today, but now there's a power supply issue again (apparantly power supplies and Yellowstone don't like each other much). So now they'll try later
13:47:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The cam just has a really bad attitude problem.
14:25:26 <KorbenC> At least SB temps are still improving.
14:52:53 <LindaGL> greetings
15:02:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Linda
15:10:51 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
15:36:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
15:38:09 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, Any good birds or trains?
15:46:42 <Betty> afternoon all
15:46:56 <LindaGL> Betty, hi
15:47:06 <Betty> hi LindaGL
15:47:30 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵, wake up :-)
15:47:45 <LindaGL> :)
15:47:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
15:47:52 <LindaGL> he must have really dozed off
15:47:58 <LindaGL> nope there he is
15:48:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Got my first distemper shot this morning. Tired.
15:48:55 <LindaGL> :) that's good
15:48:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Haven't seen much but the inside of my eyelids.
15:49:51 <Betty> :-)
15:49:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A noisy Watco just came through Kansas City but not many trains today.
15:51:27 <LindaGL> quiet day
15:55:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have one at Kansas City now.
15:58:06 <LindaGL> :)
15:59:20 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
15:59:37 <LindaGL> Forestbewithyou, hi
15:59:44 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
15:59:50 <Betty> hi Forestbewithyou
16:05:04 <Betty> my cam is stuck :-(
16:05:23 <Ætna> peculiar Daisy interval series:
16:06:03 <Ætna> 1h27m, 2h14m, 1h01m
16:06:14 <Betty> weird
16:07:11 <Ætna> am thinking 0039 should've been 0139 and either 0253 or 0354 axed
16:07:23 <Betty> afternoon Graham
16:07:44 <Ætna> but I guess Daisy can do the occasional oddball, though this interval series seems unlikely
16:08:41 <Ætna> there's a 3h52m interval in the last 100, though that might be a double. Next longest I found was 3h05m on 26 Februaru @ 1939
16:09:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> evening Betty
16:09:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice to see the steeper temp rise at SB
16:09:57 <Ætna> though in general fairly stable at 2h15/20m±20m
16:10:02 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Graham
16:10:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> agree 1h1m ooks unlikely
16:10:26 <Ætna> yeah, that temperature rise is reminiscent of that before the disturbance
16:11:00 <Ætna> so I have an optimistic hope SB will be just as ridiculous this year as it was last year
16:11:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> hopefully its just a few days beforethe next eruption and it shortens up again
16:11:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> i would like that too ......
16:13:51 <Ætna> also some increased earthquake activity at Mauna Loa's summit the last 24h, much more so than I've observed last week or so. I guess the basalt seal is holding back magma fairly well. Etna's tremor levels are on a generally increasing trend by the looks of it, so you all might have some evening entertainment if it escalates
16:16:49 <Ætna> would be for the 8th/9th paroxysm, hopefully longer than the fairly short (40-odd minutes opposed to 60m+ as of late)
16:17:36 <Ætna> anyway, off for the day. Enjoy YNM and possibly Etna
16:23:06 <Betty> night Jarno
16:35:58 <Betty> I´m out for the day, night all
16:42:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> Happy Birthday everyone too
17:44:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF cone is lit up by the sun, nice
