09:18:55 <linda> wow look at all that green
09:37:32 <Forestbewithyou> Morning all
09:40:29 <linda> Forestbewithyou2, hi
09:41:07 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
09:43:42 <JarnoO> morning all
09:43:51 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Jarno
09:45:05 <Joe> Riverside
09:51:40 <JarnoO> Nice. Whirligig's now occasionally having a series where the non-minor is followed by another eruption (maybe a brief non-minor) within 2 hours or so. Also did that a few years ago
09:53:07 <JarnoO> Steamboat note yesterday evening wasn't sparking much hope. The note makes it sound like water chemistry of boaty changed to that similar of the Whirligig area where algae and iron oxide staining is prevalent. No idea what that means for the active phase
10:10:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are playing with the 611 whistle Linda
10:11:11 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, :)
10:13:12 <linda> there goes the little guy in paradise
10:15:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Amazing how they can run two trains. Rewind Strasburg to 1207 for the whistle show. Lasts several minutes.
10:16:15 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, :thumbsup:
10:16:22 <KorbenC> yay indy!

10:25:56 <linda> :)
10:27:29 <Kitt> don't remember when people switched to calling it indy
10:29:39 <Kitt> yup that is Wyoming's social distancing
10:30:14 <linda> they are packed in there
10:30:36 <linda> and they are going to get wet
10:30:51 <Kitt> and I will be at least half are not vacinnated
10:31:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is the fun part to watch
10:31:19 <linda> they'll be tripping over each other to move out of there lol
10:31:39 <Kitt> right now Beehive's steam is going sideways, so they are safe
10:32:21 <Kitt> except for the stroller that went toward Plume
10:32:50 <linda> bee
10:33:45 <Kitt> that was a nice power burst
10:34:16 <linda> doubtful that I'm on a 5 minute delay
10:34:34 <Jeff> nice looking height
10:36:45 <linda> lion
10:39:25 <Kitt> Clark says he hit the wrong key

12:42:56 <Jeff> im not too bad just waiting for friday to get here
12:43:16 <Betty> :-D
12:47:50 <Jeff> these next few days i feel like are gonna go by so slow
12:57:47 <linda> Jeff, that's because you are young, if you were old like me they would zip. One week is like a day.
12:58:21 <Jeff> im getting up there in age though
12:58:43 <linda> :(
12:59:24 <Jeff> yes im younger than some gazers but i am 32 lol
13:08:37 <linda> :)
13:10:17 <Jeff> but 1 week from today i will be in the park hopefully catching up with some gazers and geysers
13:37:30 <84> Does anyone know how the Lower Store is operating this year?
13:38:28 <Jeff> it is. it opens the 11th
13:38:32 <Jeff> ill be working there
13:41:00 <84> :) Will it be like last year?
13:41:44 <Jeff> as far as im aware since i havent heard otherwise
13:42:57 <84> Okay, thanks!
13:43:32 <Jeff> but once i know for sure i can pass along information
13:46:11 <84> Thanks, that would be great.
13:50:43 <Jeff> i asked a couple friends that are in the park now just waiting on response
13:51:55 <Jeff> as of right now they are operating like they did last year
13:54:42 <84> Ok
13:55:41 <Jeff> apparently the upper store has been extremely busy. they broke 90k yesterday and have been consistently hitting 80k
14:08:33 <84> Do they allow only a few in at a time?
14:52:13 <Jeff> yea 84 i thought i heard something that that was lifted but im not sure
15:24:21 <Betty> hi Daisy
15:24:41 <kcmule> I'm not Daisy but hi Betty
15:24:53 <Betty> lol
15:25:06 <Betty> hi kcmule :daisy:
15:25:56 <kcmule> just completed my biennial computer desk cleaning
15:26:32 <kcmule> what else to do on a rainy
15:26:43 <kcmule> * 'holiday' weekend
15:32:26 <linda> this weather is depressing
15:36:03 <JarnoO> Well... that's peculiar. As if back basin is still in some weird disturbance mode. Per today's SB note, Echinus and Emerald alternate between cloudy and clear. When one is clear, the other is murky and the other way around
15:36:14 <Betty> we had temps around 50-65 all May, only 1 day of about 80 at end of April. Friday started a nice weather period, which is predicted to last a fortnight. Nice and warm weather now
15:36:55 <linda> Betty, :thumbsup: been raining here for a few days and in the 50s
15:37:04 <JarnoO> and the what I suspect water chemistry change at Boaty still persists
15:37:36 <Betty> though Kevin would say its arctic cold weather here. lol
15:38:31 <Betty> Turban?
15:39:11 <linda> yeah had to turn the heat on
15:53:45 <kcmule> castle ie
16:02:21 <JarnoO> a Grand
16:04:11 <JarnoO> Castle to steam
16:10:33 <JarnoO> 1554:56 G1C 10m28s
16:27:54 <JarnoO> Off for the day. Enjoy Castle in late steam
16:28:11 <Betty> wow, 6 days since the last Aurum
16:28:22 <Betty> night JarnoO
16:31:54 <Betty> I´m out too, have a great evening all
20:04:25 <GO MYRIAD> Lots going on
20:04:42 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Graham
20:05:28 <GO MYRIAD> Last MS was big
20:07:08 <GO MYRIAD> I am occupying craigs spot
20:09:06 <GO MYRIAD> Woah 4 feet
20:09:44 <Forestbewithyou> Nice
20:11:01 <GO MYRIAD> Have you seen it on cam?
20:11:56 <Forestbewithyou> I haven't been paying attention
20:13:02 <Michael> Not yet. I've only been on here once in a while.
20:13:55 <Michael> It's a geyser I've never seen before, so that would be neat.
20:18:38 <GO MYRIAD> New for me.too
20:31:03 <KorbenC> Evening all
20:31:14 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
20:31:21 <KorbenC> Hey Forest
20:31:23 <Forestbewithyou> Did you go to that tornado warning earlier today?
20:31:39 <KorbenC> Graham, I see you have been bust with MS and 3c :D Lucky!
20:31:53 <KorbenC> Forest, no, but I did get 2 wicked severe storms.
20:32:02 <Forestbewithyou> Cool!
20:32:12 <Forestbewithyou> I think I flew through a developing storm
20:32:52 <KorbenC> Constant lighting and enough hail for CDOT to bring the plows out, all of CO has been getting hammered with severe tsms these past few weeks. :)
20:32:53 <Forestbewithyou> Well I should say nearby.. We didn't fly through it
20:33:00 <KorbenC> Forest, where were you?
20:33:07 <Forestbewithyou> Right over pueblo
20:33:27 <KorbenC> and at what time?
20:33:56 <Forestbewithyou> Around 1:30.. Not sure what time zone but if I had to guess MST
20:34:02 <Forestbewithyou> I mean MDT
20:34:52 <KorbenC> If at 1330 than it was well past a developing storm, had a SWS on a line around that time (I think)
20:35:22 <Forestbewithyou> Really? Wow I didn't think that...
20:36:05 <Forestbewithyou> All I know is that I was mesmerized by the clouds
20:37:07 <KorbenC> I wonder if any spotters have reported storms from a plane in the air.
20:37:45 <Michael> You must have all of our severe weather this year. Our forecast office (ILN) is closing in on its record for no tornado warnings or reports.
20:37:52 <Forestbewithyou> Personally I would doubt it. Unless they use the plane WIFI since you can't call from an airplane (Or you're not supposed to anyways)
20:38:22 <KorbenC> Michael, wow.
20:38:25 <GO MYRIAD> Quitting with 1 h of data
20:38:31 <Forestbewithyou> Same here Michael.. Not for tornadoes but Severe Thunderstorm Warnings
20:38:52 <Forestbewithyou> The latest for MKX for tornadoes is like october 16th
20:38:54 <KorbenC> I have taken all y'all storms, and rain, and tornadoes. :)
20:40:01 <KorbenC> I think PUB (my WFO) just passed it's record for most severe tsm warnings issued in a month
20:40:19 <Forestbewithyou> Wow
20:40:36 <Forestbewithyou> My question is.. Whats new? :D
20:40:57 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, the overall lack of wind is very new
20:41:30 <Forestbewithyou> How so?
20:41:39 <KorbenC> We had one day where storms were actually producing wind so far this year, they seem to all be stuck on ping-pong-ball sized hail and isolated tornadoes. Not that I am complaining.
20:42:01 <Forestbewithyou> Ah
20:42:18 <KorbenC> Normally (thanks to the mountains) out storms explode when they enter the CO "basin" making them have more wind than hail.
20:42:32 <Forestbewithyou> That makes sense
20:44:00 <Forestbewithyou> Maybe once you get your wind we will get our weather :)
20:44:49 <KorbenC> I will negotiate the release of your storms, rain, and tornadoes. Never. :P
20:45:22 <Forestbewithyou> Hahaha
20:45:22 <KorbenC> I am perfectly happy with storms being "stuck" to the western portion of tornado alley, as they seem to have been for a while now.
20:45:56 <Michael> You're welcome to keep ours. As long as we get enough rain to keep things green.
20:46:16 <KorbenC> Michael, you can take our rain :D
20:46:21 <Michael> I'll throw in a few cicadas as a present.
20:46:22 <Forestbewithyou> Yea you can keep the tornadoes
20:46:29 <Forestbewithyou> Ohh good idea Michael
20:46:49 <KorbenC> Michael, no thanks, give them to Forest.
20:46:54 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
20:46:58 <Forestbewithyou> I love Cicadas
20:48:07 <Michael> Do you get a swarm this year Forest?
20:48:16 <Forestbewithyou> I don't think so
20:48:48 <Forestbewithyou> I haven't heard of any but I will do some quick reserch
20:49:33 <Forestbewithyou> 2024 is the next year
20:51:14 <KorbenC> Now I know where not to go for my graduation vacation :P
20:51:36 <Forestbewithyou> lol
20:52:15 <KorbenC> Forest, why do you like cicadas? I mean,
20:52:53 <Forestbewithyou> I will rephrase. I like hearing them and seeing their exoskeletons
20:53:00 <KorbenC> It's eyes make it look like it supported the year 2020 in its full entirety, just saying.
20:53:07 <KorbenC> Ah, that I can udnerstand.
20:53:14 <Forestbewithyou> Fair point
20:53:15 <KorbenC> unerdstand*
20:54:08 <KorbenC> OK, goodnight all. Say hi to BH for me Graham.
20:54:29 <Michael> Night, KorbenC.
20:54:57 <Forestbewithyou> Night Korben
20:55:37 <Michael> Lion
21:01:39 <Forestbewithyou> I am out as well. Night Michael and everyone else
21:01:59 <Michael> Night Forest.
21:30:47 <Kitt> Daisy
21:30:53 <Kitt> ie
21:36:46 <Kitt> so tomorrow's Castle will be the 2nd major after a minor
21:37:04 <Kitt> what interval is nps using for that?
21:37:50 <Kitt> I noticed that there are 2 hours 7 minutes difference between the gosa and nps predictions
