08:06:36 <Mike J> Many many times. I've been visiting the park for a number of years.
08:06:46 <Mike J> Sawmill is one of those I took for granted.
08:07:01 <Mike J> "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone"
08:07:07 <LindaGp> ☺ i took aurum for granted

09:36:20 <2x the Indy> Thank you for the clarification must have been delayed delivery with the 1032
09:36:53 <LindaGp> Yeah the txts have been shaky at best
09:38:41 <LindaGp> 10:32 was eastern time. 😕
09:42:15 <LindaGp> Lion
09:42:29 <LindaGp> minor
09:52:35 <LindaGp> Sawmill ie
10:07:07 <work for free> what is the name of that hoot pool eruptiong now
10:07:27 <LindaGp> Sawmill
10:07:42 <work for free> tahnks
10:08:06 <LindaGp> Hoot pool? 🙄
10:08:12 <KorbenC> lol
10:08:38 <work for free> It's a hoot right now:)
10:08:55 <LindaGp> :gt: it is!
10:09:03 <LindaGp> :)
10:09:43 <Mike J> Hoot mon, that's a very Scottish pool
10:10:02 <KorbenC> We were considering renaming Sawmill to a pool after 3 years of Dormancy :P
10:10:03 <LindaGp> :)
10:10:32 <Mike J> Note to work for free , we are all typing challenged, so those who joke make a lot of the same errors.
10:10:36 <LindaGp> True should have said sawmill geyser
10:10:53 <Mike J> Three years!!!! I didn't realize it had been that long.
10:11:08 <KorbenC> It was almost 5 years until it finaly started up again a month ago.
10:11:17 <LindaGp> And we are sometimes not sure who is serious or who are making typos ;)
10:12:28 <LindaGp> Was trying to figure out what word would become hoot, if it were a typo
10:12:36 <Mike J> Again, I will be really excited to see it this weekend. Like visiting an old friend.
10:12:51 <Mike J> hoot = hot...I assume
10:13:03 <KorbenC> Mike J, :D
10:13:22 <LindaGp> I couldnt come up with a word
10:13:35 <LindaGp> Hot is good
10:14:01 <KorbenC> ONe month ago Forest and I were joking about: "What if Sawmill and Penta erupts, lol." "Haha, thats would be a good dream." That afternoon Penta erupted and 3 days later Sawmill erupted.
10:14:19 <work for free> last note was 2016. When did it last errupt?
10:14:25 <LindaGp> :thumbsup:
10:14:53 <KorbenC> The last eruption before the dormancy was 29 Jan 2017 @ 0719 ie.
10:15:11 <KorbenC> Then it erupted on 24 Jun 2021 @ 0200 A after 4y 146d 17h 41m
10:15:44 <KorbenC> for a 4y 146d 17h 41m duration.
10:15:48 <KorbenC> interval* lol

11:52:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Is you house still there?
11:53:01 <linda> yes, but there is still rumbling in the distance
11:53:12 <linda> That was serious hail
11:53:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bet it made some noise
11:54:27 <linda> sure did and it gained in size as storm went on
11:54:47 <linda> on radar looks like it's slowly moving out to sea
11:55:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Had hail like that at Ft Hood while I was one guard duty once with no shelter. :p
11:58:45 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh my, that must have hurt
11:59:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had dents in my steel helmet and welts on my back.
12:05:56 <linda> ouch
12:11:50 <linda> uh oh here comes another round
12:13:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good luck.

14:11:32 <linda> KorbenC, check out the weather in S. New Jersey
14:11:44 <KorbenC> Linda, I am staring at it right now :)
14:11:51 <linda> I have a storm cell stuck over me
14:12:00 <KorbenC> you keep getting storms too
14:12:04 <linda> Walnut sized hail up by point pleasant
14:12:17 <linda> Right now it's calm but...
14:12:42 <KorbenC> Walnut's falling down from the sky, lol
14:12:49 <linda> Manahawkin people sending in pics of their hail to NJ12 news
14:13:15 <KorbenC> Hopefully storm spotters are out there, IDK why they wouldnt be though
14:13:18 <linda> I hope they are exaggerating
14:14:51 <kiawe (at work)> Is it my imagination, or does the Yellowstone sky have a bit of a brown tinge?
14:15:04 <KorbenC> kiawe (at work), yes, haze from the wildfires
14:15:42 <kiawe (at work)> My FiL in New Jersey said he can smell the smoke form the fires in Oregon. They have a health warning about the smoke.
14:16:10 <linda> sun was red thru the haze last night
14:17:19 <linda> kiawe (at work), that mixed with humidity has made it pretty miserable
14:17:56 <kiawe (at work)> He had some choice things to say about that combo.
14:18:07 <linda> yeah and add in the heat
14:18:47 <linda> I was going to make plane reseravations for Yellowstone today, but Delta will be unreachable with all this weather. I'm sure all the airports are backed up.a
14:19:26 <kiawe (at work)> Now everyone knows what it was like when Hawaii was actively doing cane burns :) :D
14:20:01 <linda> :)
14:21:57 <linda> 10 minutes till more rain, that's what the news says
14:23:46 <KorbenC> looks about right
14:27:48 <linda> its here
14:28:02 <kiawe (at work)> yay rain!
14:28:13 <linda> :)
14:28:31 <linda> the west needs this
14:28:45 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
14:29:02 <Mario> :drizzle:
14:29:18 <linda> glad i renewed my flood ins
14:32:16 <kiawe (at work)> We tried to reseed our lawn with a salt-resistant grass. Only half of the seeds in one particular area seem to have come up; I don't think the birds ate the rest.
14:32:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We are getting rain now. Had my power off for a while.
14:33:23 <kiawe (at work)> Salt on the lines frequently shorts our power during drizzle.
14:33:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dust does that here.
14:34:04 <kiawe (at work)> Nothing new under the sun. :)
14:34:41 <kiawe (at work)> Off to see if the bread in the machine has finished baking -- aloha!
14:36:48 <Betty> hi all

15:07:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Long delay
15:09:14 <JarnoO> Sawmill

15:28:57 <KorbenC> Hi "non-anonymous" version of Jarno
15:29:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
15:43:38 <JarnoO> 6.8 EQ off the coast of Panama
15:43:56 <JarnoO> should arrive soon at Yellowstone's seismic network
15:52:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There was also a 6.1 eq near there on the 17th
15:53:05 <JarnoO> could've been a foreshock
15:55:58 <Michelle> Good afternoon
15:56:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
15:57:00 <Michelle> I'm still here. Are you ready for me tonight?
15:57:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> yes. Let me release controls.
15:57:47 <Michelle> Going to log in.
15:58:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Released. Been a bit sluggish this afternoon.
15:58:54 <Michelle> After the week I have had, sluggish is ok!
15:59:00 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, was sluggish for me
16:00:07 <linda> uhoh
16:00:14 <Michelle> Not doing anything for me at all
16:00:35 <Michelle> Trying presets
16:00:37 <linda> try hitting a preposition like oF
16:00:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Michelle broke the cam?
16:00:57 <linda> yup
16:01:17 <Michelle> Nope, presets are not even working
16:01:48 <linda> there we go
16:01:58 <Michelle> My screen is showing the down basin
16:02:09 <linda> oh I see OF
16:02:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have OF blinking
16:02:34 <linda> Michelle, you are delayed on yourself :)
16:02:43 <Michelle> My screen still has down basin
16:02:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At least my Chama cams are working today
16:03:38 <linda> Michelle, talking about control screen? You can hit live in upper left hand corner
16:03:58 <linda> sometimes control screen freezes but stream continues
16:04:01 <Michelle> My screen is further to the right than usual and frozen on the down basin
16:04:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Try a refresh
16:04:49 <Michelle> Live worked! Thanks Linda
16:05:09 <linda> Michelle, :thumbsup: I think it's about the same as a refresh
16:06:18 <Michelle> Yes!! Working, for now!
16:06:47 <linda> :thumbsup:
16:15:33 <KorbenC> The mill is still sawing
16:16:51 <Michelle> Some awesome bursts
16:44:46 <kiawe (at work)> Sawmill is being Captain Extreme Percolator.
16:45:40 <kiawe (at work)> It's been active every time I've been on for the past couple of days, which I find unusual.
16:46:15 <KorbenC> It is back to pre-dormancy behvior.
16:46:22 <KorbenC> Where it seems to be active the majority of the time.
16:46:46 <kiawe (at work)> Constantly active, like Clepsydra?
16:46:53 <KorbenC> no
16:47:10 <KorbenC> Like a small version of Grotto
16:51:34 <kiawe (at work)> So frequent, low level, long term gargling.
16:52:12 <kiawe (at work)> With occasional explosions :D
16:53:06 <kiawe (at work)> Sadly, the cam seems to have reverted to poor resolution again.
16:56:23 <KorbenC> Sure, lets go with that :)
16:56:31 <KorbenC> Just, alot of long eruptions that last for hours.
16:57:13 <kiawe (at work)> Headed to lunch -- just wanted a quick look in. Take care! Don't snort too much smoke.
16:57:23 <KorbenC> A bit like Tardy was when it first reactivated, it would erupt for 45 minutes stop for 1 minutes, erupt for 94 minutes stop for 3 minutes. :)
16:57:30 <KorbenC> aloha Kiawe
17:00:31 <JarnoO> somewhere before 1622 that is
17:00:34 <JarnoO> Arty ie
17:03:43 <JarnoO> can we have a closer look at Grotto? Not entirely sure if it's done or not
17:05:35 <JarnoO> actually nevermind on that Grotto request
17:09:00 <JarnoO> Korben must like the format in which I gave Grotto's possible duration range
17:12:37 <KorbenC> Jarno, lol
17:14:09 <KorbenC> I would like to know if it was less than or greater than 24hrs :)
17:14:50 <JarnoO> only Grotto knows
17:14:54 <KorbenC> Maybe Jim is hanging down there right now, I think he mentioned a long F&M sit today.
17:18:12 <KorbenC> It says more than 24hrs, totaly not just because I want a day long Grotto or anything
18:21:34 <JarnoO> hm... I want to stay on until Sawmill quit, but on the other hand I'm not particularly looking forward to seeing daybreak here while it's evening there
18:22:01 <JarnoO> that having said, it still will be about 2 hours before that happens so I have some time
18:22:59 <linda> JarnoO, JarnoO, go for it :)
18:23:43 <KorbenC> lol
18:23:51 <KorbenC> We beleive in you Jarno
18:24:44 <linda> KorbenC, all is calm now, and I'm surprised no flooding on major roadways
18:24:56 <KorbenC> Linda, thats good an surprising
18:25:26 <linda> KorbenC, I'm sure the island (long beach Island) is under water, but it always is
18:25:51 <KorbenC> haha
18:28:39 <linda> so I know it's counter intuitive, but my flight will go from newark to atlanta to bozeman 🤣
18:33:45 <Michelle> Linda, are you in NJ? For some reason I thought you were in California.
18:34:08 <linda> No, I'm in New Jersey
18:35:40 <linda> For the purpose of being closer, california would be great, It's a hike to get out there
18:36:48 <linda> I'm trying to coordinate a trip with my niece and she's in Seattle
18:37:23 <KorbenC> When do you get into the park?
18:37:45 <linda> Sept 1st for 7 days
18:38:01 <KorbenC> amazing
18:38:01 <linda> We want to meet and bozeman and rent one car
18:38:40 <linda> KorbenC, what's amazing?
18:38:47 <KorbenC> you getting into the park!
18:38:58 <linda> lol true I guess
18:39:15 <KorbenC> OK Linda, play it down, I guess :P
18:39:15 <linda> It's been 3 yrs I think
18:40:00 <Michelle> I will be there Sunday afternoon. Finally
18:40:11 <linda> Michelle, Michelle, that's great
18:41:12 <linda> I don't know why my computer repeats the name, repeats the name. 😉
18:41:39 <linda> Michelle, how long will you be there
18:43:26 <Michelle> We were packed and ready to go, went to print the reservations and they said the 24th. Glad we didn't get there and realize there was a problem
18:43:48 <linda> oh wow
18:44:45 <linda> All the coordinating flights and cars and hotels makes me nervous, and now my niece adds to it. But we will have fun.
18:59:22 <Michelle> Linda, 2 weeks
19:04:04 <JarnoO> Sawmill nearing 4 hours
19:14:54 <linda> Michelle, nice, that will be great
19:17:13 <Michelle> I'm ready! This year I can at least walk!! Don't know how far, but as far as I can!
19:18:15 <Michelle> I have plotted a course to Sawmill via Castle. My husband says it's further than I think. I will find out!
19:19:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lot of benches there Michelle
19:20:10 <Michelle> I might need them.
19:23:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And w ide bridge.
19:25:52 <Michelle> Need to look at my route real quick
19:26:49 <Michelle> Heck, that's not too far! I can do that!
19:27:18 <linda> yeah I'll have to plot my routes too
19:31:38 <JarnoO> Oblong doing a push I think
19:32:00 <JarnoO> there's a good chance we'll see it soon since Grotto did a long marathon
19:37:57 <JarnoO> That's an odd demand to release two prison guards held hostage... In Sweden two inmates demanded a helicopter to escape, but later changed it to demanding pizzas for their entire block to release the two.
19:39:49 <JarnoO> https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2-guards-taken-hostage-by-inmates-at-prison-in-sweden/2021/07/21/5033ab30-ea3c-11eb-a2ba-3be31d349258_story.html
19:40:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You can see why the idiots are in jail.
19:40:57 <linda> :-/
19:41:23 <JarnoO> could be worse - like escaping by their demanded helicopter. Kinda glad they actually wanted pizzas instead. At least their other inmates will remember it I reckon
19:41:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Send them nice tasty hemlock pizza.
19:44:05 <Peter_Pan> So, has Sawmill ever gone off for this long? I though it had to refull after a eruption.
19:44:35 <Peter_Pan> refill
19:45:05 <JarnoO> it does need to refill but no - that's quite literally the answer
19:45:31 <JarnoO> it will happily erupt again a few minutes after a long eruption
19:46:16 <JarnoO> especially now that it's back it demonstrates how much heat and water influx there is in that area
19:46:38 <Peter_Pan> Has Sawmill Geyser even stop to take a breath today?
19:48:00 <JarnoO> yes, <21m between 0742ie and 0950ie, 1h21m between 0950ie and 1313 and 1h53m between 1313 and 1507:30
19:48:33 <Peter_Pan> Must be a lot of water coming in. Thanks
19:49:04 <JarnoO> the first deep drain since it went dormant had only 9 minutes of quiet before it had another go
19:49:23 <Peter_Pan> Hot hot is the waters there?
19:49:46 <JarnoO> not hotter than anywhere else in that area I think?
19:50:31 <Peter_Pan> Thanks
19:50:50 <JarnoO> I think the overall balance between input and output there is not far off of an equilibrium - the equilibrium obviously being a perpetual spouter
19:51:38 <JarnoO> water is in shorter supply than heat though, as otherwise I think there would be a steam phase at the end of an eruption of many features
19:51:59 <JarnoO> imagine a Sawmill in steam, that would be fun
20:09:39 <JarnoO> Korben, Grotto lasted 24h27m
20:10:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And 41.7 seconds.
20:13:34 <KorbenC> JarnoO, :D
20:13:39 <KorbenC> That you Jarno.
20:14:35 <KorbenC> Peter_Pan, "19:44:05 ‹Peter_Pan› So, has Sawmill ever gone off for this long? I though it had to refull after a eruption." Sawmill has erupted for 6hrs before is at least what I know to be the record. As for refilling it had to for the first few eruptions but not anymore.
20:16:56 <KorbenC> Jarno, earlier this year would you ever think we would be approaching the longest Sawmill duration ever recorded, or even watchign Sawmill>
20:19:26 <JarnoO> I do remember saying that I thought there's a slim chance for Sawmill this year. I guess Sawmill took that as a go
20:19:55 <KorbenC> We all knew it could only go so long :)
20:20:49 <KorbenC> I think that was the first (second maybe?) time that gazers got good, continuous data for the complete reactivation of a complex right?
20:22:25 <KorbenC> and by complex I mean full complex, not like Giant or Steamboat
20:24:02 <JarnoO> definitely not the second time. Lion complex is at least in there
20:24:21 <KorbenC> I will have to research that.
20:25:26 <KorbenC> how 'bout we get data on Splendid coming back next? Lol, that would be the radio call of a lifetime.
20:25:44 <JarnoO> also depends on what you consider a complex. I consider the Giant platform as a complex within a large complex (Link(?), Grotto, Giant group itself and Daisy(?))
20:26:26 <KorbenC> IDK if it is true, but hae you heard about the way we know Daisy and Giant are connected?
20:26:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The dirt between them?
20:26:57 <JarnoO> I recall Transactions I mentions that a GHP only happened when Daisy was within a few minutes of erupting
20:27:07 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, haha
20:27:47 <KorbenC> So, supposedly someone (I actually think it might have been the NPS) put some dye in Giant, and a while later it showed up in Daisy. Voila, they are connected.
20:27:58 <Michelle> Kevin:)
20:28:33 <KorbenC> Sorrta the same thing happened with Sawmill and Thumping hole, we knew they were already connected. But Thumping hole turned purple during the first few Sawmill's, and rumor has it because someone put purple hair dye in Sawmill a while ago.
20:28:37 <JarnoO> not sure how much of that is true nowadays though, perhaps someone should correlate recent GHPs with Daisy eruptive times and see whether that statement is true or only by observer bias
20:29:05 <KorbenC> JarnoO, I would ask Tara. She probably has.
20:31:14 <JarnoO> well, I only have to pull up the most recent GHPs to find out there's no apparant connection between Daisy and GHPs anymore (if there was one at all in the first place)
20:31:31 <Michelle> I remember when they put soap in Crested Pool.:)
20:31:44 <JarnoO> what did that one do?
20:32:33 <KorbenC> Crested Pool is probably the feature that scares me the most in YNP, lol.
20:32:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was there when they drained MGP for cleaning.
20:33:11 <KorbenC> I mean it has already killed someone, the BW keeps getting moved back from it, frail thin edges and massive random boils that always seem to be eying me, lol.
20:33:20 <Michelle> They tried to get it to erupt so they could get the remains of a kid out of there. Early 70s, we were there within a few minutes of it happening.
20:33:30 <JarnoO> wasn't that cleaning attempt quite anticlimactic, Kevin?
20:33:37 <KorbenC> RIP Timmy (It was Timmy right?)
20:34:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I would have been very nervous if I was the one cleaning it.
20:34:51 <KorbenC> Andy Hecht "Timmy" :(
20:35:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Timmys didn't do well on Dinosaurs.
20:35:11 <Michelle> I was just a kid.
20:35:24 <KorbenC> Michelle, 12 years old I think
20:35:34 <KorbenC> no, 9 year old
20:36:05 <Michelle> Timmy are always falling in something. Lassie found him in a well.
20:36:44 <KorbenC> Jarno, do you know the PH of Crested?
20:37:34 <Michelle> Same age as my brothers were back then is all i really remember.
20:38:19 <JarnoO> what I think they should do is firstly put some sort of camera into MGP and see where exactly the vent goes to. Then, put some sort of long pipe or drill shaped like the deeper vent and punch holes into the clogged bit. That surely should allow more water to escape. After that, if it doesn't go by "itself", drain the pool and cross fingers for an eruption
20:38:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsGnYuQwsOI&ab_channel=JustPressPlay
20:38:44 <JarnoO> note the quotes around 'itself'
20:39:00 <KorbenC> Did you mean MGP or were you talking about Crested?
20:39:13 <JarnoO> MGP - it's literally in that message
20:39:32 <KorbenC> Sorry, I was just checking :) They are very similar in background
20:39:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning Glory Pool.
20:39:45 <JarnoO> but I have my doubts that'll happen. Though again - how much more can you damage a feature which is already nearly gone?
20:40:09 <KorbenC> It looked alot hotter this year I will say, and cleaner
20:40:54 <JarnoO> maybe a good thing it hasn't been done already. Fingers crossed it goes by itself one way or another, perhaps an earthquake like Hebgen Lake will do that
20:41:07 <KorbenC> Well I dont want that.
20:41:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBB5DIx6JHQ&ab_channel=DavidSchwarz
20:41:31 <KorbenC> Because we might get MGP back but loose BH, Lion, Grand, Daisy, Riverside, OF, Castle, Anemone, Sawmill, ect.
20:42:56 <KorbenC> This one is kinda neat too, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zx8FUA30hYg
20:44:37 <JarnoO> Riverside will likely do what it's always been doing - slowly but steadily increasing and decreasing eruptive frequency. Lion and friends will likely go dormant (did that following 1959 and 1983). Castle likely changes its behavior, Daisy shortens up and/or goes dormant. Grand will be interesting. Likely goes dormant though
20:45:25 <KorbenC> Or none of them go dormant and we get Grands +/- 10 minutes :P
20:46:23 <JarnoO> Fluffball will probably change its behavior only slowly, likely will go for longer intervals (perhaps longs eventually at 2-2h30m and shorts at 1h30m-1h45m or so), Anemones are very stable, won't expect much there. Sawmill complex - no idea. Probably remains active in one way or another, perhaps increased eruptions durations
20:47:01 <KorbenC> I still worry about the Anemones een though they just keep doing their thing :)
20:47:04 <JarnoO> what I think OF needs is an earthquake to the SE of it. The earthquakes which slowed it down all happened N-NE of it
20:47:41 <KorbenC> Jarno, would you trade things like Grand, and Lion for one or two MGP eruptions?
20:47:50 <JarnoO> Frog Pools would be interesting with a Hebgen Lake-magnitude earthquake
20:48:13 <KorbenC> Frog Pools are just crazy, lol
20:48:29 <JarnoO> crazy as in crazy silent?
20:48:43 <KorbenC> until they aren't :)
20:49:16 <JarnoO> I'd trade a Giant active phase for MGP eruptions
20:49:17 <KorbenC> Some of the behavior from Frog Pools and Libery pools on my trip were "wow"
20:49:37 <JarnoO> you do know that Liberty Pool is part of the Frog Pools, right?
20:49:52 <KorbenC> Yes, hence why I added it in a sperate part of the message
20:49:56 <JarnoO> or perhaps F&M
20:50:08 <KorbenC> I would trade Giant or FM for MGP.
20:50:08 <JarnoO> F&M for MGP that is
20:50:30 <KorbenC> I think that is more than fair. Like trading Aurum and SB for Sawmill, Tary and Penta.
20:52:22 <JarnoO> MGP goes to about 40 feet. Weighs up against F&M given that it also outputs a very large volume of water
20:53:08 <KorbenC> But F&M is much more chaotic, which is fun
20:54:00 <KorbenC> I bet MGP has some nice bursting though, like those big Spa bursts that have ALOT of water being pushed out
20:54:44 <JarnoO> I reckon it would be somewhat similar to Oblong and Artemisia
20:56:08 <KorbenC> Those big bubbles that send spa to the treetops, that is what I would imagine it like.
21:03:14 <KorbenC> I do wonder what MGP would look like from the cam. That whole are down basin is weird and very distorted from this perspective, heck, I dont even know where it would be
21:05:07 <KorbenC> anyways, goodnight all!
21:05:44 <KorbenC> nevermind, Sawmill is at 5h 57m, I have to stay for 3 more minutes. Jarno, how is your "stay here until Sawmill stops" thing going?
21:07:36 <KorbenC> Wow. Sawmill has now been ie for 6hrs! I think that rivals the longest Sawmill ever.
21:07:42 <JarnoO> ehm... I guess I should hold my word...
21:08:38 <JarnoO> 6h41m is the longest in the database
21:09:39 <KorbenC> Jarno, it is so terrible watching Sawmill erupt for 6hrs, isn't it? ;) jk.
21:10:13 <JarnoO> will be a good evening for the in-basin folks. I think Old Tardy will go into series (GT now shouldn't combine entries of different eruptions within 15 minutes of one) and perhaps OTD will make its appearance as well. Good chance on a number of Holes
21:10:44 <JarnoO> Twilight will be fun as well
21:10:51 <KorbenC> Uncertain too maybe?
21:11:16 <JarnoO> perhaps this drain wakes up Uncertain. Read some promising reports following less deeper drains
21:11:22 <KorbenC> yup
21:11:34 <KorbenC> Sawmill, I guess I will return in 39m for you passing longest recorded duration.
21:12:46 <JarnoO> Spas appears to be quitting
21:14:15 <JarnoO> Sawmill done
21:17:33 <JarnoO> a rightful Sawmill marathon
21:18:39 <JarnoO> Sawmill steamy
21:19:41 <JarnoO> it's trying, but appears to be failing
21:21:07 <Michelle> I Think it's done
21:21:16 <JarnoO> and with that I'm off. Enjoy the choas which follows this deep drain. Oblong looks very promising there
21:21:26 <JarnoO> I might stay to see how that pans out
21:21:31 <JarnoO> I will, actually
21:22:57 <Michelle> Nope, it's back
21:23:31 <JarnoO> yay
21:27:21 <JarnoO> well, I'm now truly off. I kept my word but I won't stay here until this one's done. I guess I need to "reset" my sleeping schedule, so a good excuse to watch it from my phone in bed :)
21:28:22 <Michelle> Have a great night.
21:28:32 <KorbenC> Goodnight Jarno
21:29:09 <KorbenC> Actually good morning Jarno, it is mornign there afterall :)
21:29:35 <Michelle> Korean, you missed it. It stopped for a few and then started again
21:29:55 <KorbenC> ****
21:30:01 <Michelle> Korben, not Korean
21:30:35 <KorbenC> well, thanks for lettim me know
21:31:19 <KorbenC> I do want to make it clear that I am not complaining about Sawmill erupting for more than 6hrs.
21:31:25 <KorbenC> Goodnight Michelle, all.
21:31:56 <Michelle> Well, i think i am done too. Have a grwat night everyone!
21:48:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I just got my Indy test.
