07:20:58 <Kat> depends on whee you are
07:21:04 <Kat> where*
07:21:35 <linda> for sure. usuallu in early morning
07:23:24 <Kat> wish there was a Lion to OF preset
07:24:18 <KorbenC> Kat, tell Linda to go up there and stretch the camera lense until you can :)
07:24:37 <Kat> haha
07:24:39 <linda> does it go that far?
07:24:48 <Kat> No
07:30:19 <KorbenC> Lion roaring
07:30:48 <Kat> Yep - and OF in window :(
07:31:07 <KorbenC> Maybe you can keep panning back and forth between them?
07:33:13 <KorbenC> thats the roar we need
07:33:14 <KorbenC> LION
07:33:20 <Kat> :lion:
07:34:25 <linda> nice
07:34:44 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:38:17 <KorbenC> Riverside 0736
07:53:25 <Kat> We got them both! Yay!
08:28:41 <KorbenC> Lion might be soon again
08:29:45 <KorbenC> can we zoom out Kat, looksl ike Arty
08:34:44 <linda> Kat, appt actually at 11:15 instead of 11am
08:40:56 <KorbenC> Lion is due
08:44:26 <KorbenC> Dwarfs
08:45:40 <Kat> Don't see water
08:45:57 <KorbenC> I see splashes on the far one
08:46:10 <Kat> ok
08:50:00 <KorbenC> Oh, thats why Lion isn't going to erupt. Hi Betty.
08:50:20 <Kat> :lol:
08:50:35 <Betty> bah, it wasn´t me
08:50:46 <KorbenC> That;s what the person who did it would say :)
08:50:55 <Kat> Blame Korben
08:51:21 <Betty> ghg-5 is steamy
08:51:27 <Betty> hi Kat
08:51:32 <KorbenC> Betty, its had some good splashing this morning
08:51:35 <Kat> Hi Betty
08:53:15 <KorbenC> I am loosing hope of Lion, we are way to many roars in and I have not seen a drop of liquid water from it
08:54:03 <Kat> Never give up
08:55:16 <KorbenC> Ehm
08:55:22 <KorbenC> Was NG just boiling/splashing a bit!?
08:55:37 <KorbenC> Would be optimal time for it, after Lion is done with series
08:56:38 <Betty> don´t think so
08:57:22 <Kat> Don't see water
08:58:27 <KorbenC> It was steamy but I cant see any water on it
08:58:57 <KorbenC> Hey Jarno, areyou here?
08:59:36 <Kat> Wondering if Lion is post -eruptive
08:59:58 <KorbenC> I have a Lion question for you if you are here: Do you know what is the number of the most consecutive minors Lion has had in a series?
09:00:25 <KorbenC> I don't think so, if it was 15mins post eruptive thenit would be dead.
09:00:38 <KorbenC> unless it had a minor at some point, which is possible
09:05:30 <Betty> howdy kc
09:10:37 <Eric> morning...is it raining in the basin or did SB just erupt?
09:10:37 <Betty> hi Eric
09:10:45 <KorbenC> Hi Eric
09:10:53 <Eric> Hi Betty & Korben
09:11:04 <KorbenC> I don't thin SB just erupted, radar shows rain showers over the entire park, and nothing on seismos
09:11:14 <Kat> Morning all!
09:11:19 <Eric> Hi Kat
09:11:28 <KorbenC> BUt I hope it did :D
09:11:36 <Eric> Thanks Korben. I get txt alerts when Tantalus goes too high :-P
09:11:52 <KorbenC> lol
09:12:24 <Betty> Norris Junction has a suspect trace...
09:12:38 <Eric> Triggered by SB and/or sudden rainstorms
09:12:43 <Betty> but Norris Museum does not
09:12:52 <KorbenC> Betty, you talking abut the 0640 one?
09:12:59 <Betty> yep
09:13:20 <KorbenC> Fine, I will check spectrogram :P
09:13:40 <Eric> Korben, if you start getting tons of Lion minors, watch carefully for goggle!
09:13:58 <KorbenC> First I have to remember how to use Swarm it has been so long
09:14:14 <Kat> It was steaming well - but didn't see any water Eric
09:14:24 <6> No Steamboat if you believe loggers, but apparently that's no longer the case with you all anymore
09:14:26 <Eric> Yes, I don't see anything on the seismo for SB :-(
09:14:47 <Eric> O dpm
09:14:47 <KorbenC> 6, it never hurts to check
09:15:03 <Eric> I don't see any excessive Lion minors either.
09:15:10 <KorbenC> the weather data too says "No Steamboat"
09:15:16 <KorbenC> Eric, no, we have not had any minors
09:15:49 <KorbenC> Eric, got any plans for the weekend? besides getting your phone spammed from the USGS when it rains. :)
09:16:33 <Eric> I have had that setup for years Korben :-D It actually doesn't trigger too often.
09:16:52 <KorbenC> Ah, :thumbsup:
09:17:02 <Eric> No big plans, just hiking Saturday and getting my daughter ready to head off to college.
09:17:17 <KorbenC> Oh, congrats to her
09:17:28 <Eric> Thanks, she is excited.
09:18:03 <Eric> Who knows, we might pop into yellowstone after we drop her off :-D
09:18:27 <KorbenC> :D
09:18:35 <KorbenC> You havent been into the park for a while now right
09:20:01 <Eric> Nope, it's been a couple years..Fall 2019 was my last visit.
09:20:30 <Betty> sigh
09:20:33 <KorbenC> Thats too long
09:21:13 <KorbenC> Betty, do you have any plans for 2022?
09:21:47 <Eric> Yes, it's been a long time. We have 4 days after dropping off my daughter to make our way home, not if yellowstone or some other destination is on our list yet.
09:25:47 <KorbenC> We just have to steer Dave away so you can see some geysers.
09:30:40 <Kat> OF
09:36:32 <KorbenC> Has anyone seen Jarno lately, he hasn't entered into GT since August 3rd?
09:36:45 <Kat> I haven't
09:37:17 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: He is probably lurking somewhere.
09:38:29 <Betty> daisy ie
09:38:40 <Betty> ??
09:38:44 <Betty> no???
09:38:56 <KorbenC> well that was something
09:39:03 <Betty> only steam not due
09:39:05 <KorbenC> no Daisy, big Comet maybe?
09:39:49 <Eric> I assume by the snarky comment that Jarno is 6
09:40:10 <KorbenC> Haha, good point.
09:41:25 <KorbenC> Hopefully all is well with Jarno, even when he is lurking he normally enters into GT
09:41:47 <6> well, after the latest incident I'm better off keeping all times to myself
09:42:05 <Eric> :-(
09:42:07 <KorbenC> You talking about the Bulger and Bulger's Hole thing?
09:42:26 <6> that was the drop which spilled the bucket
09:42:49 <KorbenC> I mean, it was flagged for a good reason, no need to get all mad at it
09:43:33 <6> well, I entered it with seconds because I saw the start. I wouldn't have if I didn't (which is why Daisy gets a ± and not exact with seconds)
09:43:35 <Eric> Sorry, you got in the middle of gazer drama Jarno :-( I think they are trying to get things sorted and verified.
09:44:13 <KorbenC> As for Bulgers Hole one can reasonably get the start, but as for Bulger you have to see down inside of its vent to see the start, at least most of the time.
09:45:12 <Eric> I see no issue with seconds on WC entries. why not allow seconds for peoples observations. WC is already marked on it.
09:46:58 <KorbenC> Well, I have been advised by people I trust to leave the subject so they can take care of it, so I will do just that. :)
09:48:54 <6> that's also my philosphy as far as WC goes - besides accounting for the delay it always has, it also accounts for those below the surface starts which you can only see in-basin. A few days ago with Rocket I took that a bit too far, but otherwise I only enter seconds when I have an unobstructed view at the vent. Which is why I don't enter Churn with seconds (boardwalk) but for Sawmill I do
09:50:07 <Eric> Whatever, it's YOUR entry..if people don't like your entries...they can filter away!
09:50:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am happy with minutes. When I was in highway design they made us do figures to 1/1000 of an inch. Like a grader is going to come close to 1/1000"?
09:50:49 <Eric> Hi Kevin
09:51:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Eric.
09:51:02 <KorbenC> I think that was the problem with your Bulger's Hole time 6, the hole will fill and boil and splash just below the rim which is what people see as the true start time, and you can't see that from the cam
09:51:23 <Eric> Yep, people can ignore your seconds or even minutes and just get the hour they want.
09:51:50 <Eric> You should add milliseconds Jarno :-P
09:52:07 <KorbenC> :p
09:52:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Certain geysers seconds may be important like OF. Others like Giantess, not so much.
09:53:11 <Eric> I think any entry that is made with the users best skills is great! If you have seconds, use them and try to be clear about your observation.
09:55:20 <Eric> It's you the users data, go out and observe and record!
10:02:24 <KorbenC> Hey, F&M is in an event cycle. Lets hope A shuts up
10:03:49 <Linda> Kat ill be home in about 10-15 min
10:07:24 <Kat> Linda, OK be safe
10:13:37 <Betty> hi Kevin, and bye. bbl
10:13:59 <Kevin iPad> Hi Betty
10:14:52 <Kat> bye betty
10:20:48 <LindaGL> hi I'm here, I'll sign in.
10:21:08 <Kat> Ok :)
10:22:26 <LindaGL> Kat, Got it~ Thanks!
10:23:31 <Kat> Your welcome! Time for a nap! zzzzzzzzzz
10:24:29 <Linda> Daisy
10:24:41 <Linda> Kat, enjoy
10:28:59 <Kevin iPad> Had to stop at a quail crossing this morning Linda
10:29:25 <Linda> Kevin iPad, :) how many?
10:30:20 <Kevin iPad> About 10-15
10:30:57 <Linda> Wow thats a lot
10:31:30 <Linda> Kevin iPad, did they have their own crossing guard
10:31:45 <KorbenC> Kevin iPad, to meit sounds like dinner :p
10:33:12 <Kevin iPad> There was one large one. Been a bunch in the front yard lately too.
10:33:40 <Linda> Nice
10:39:19 <Linda> Looks like arty starting
10:39:55 <Linda> the yellow brigade
10:42:46 <Linda> Removed my arty entry, we will see
10:46:44 <Linda> It muat be arty just a lot of wind
10:47:09 <KorbenC> That is Arty
10:47:20 <KorbenC> I guess my entry earlier was not arty
10:47:20 <kc (working)> there's an 0830ie entry?
10:47:24 <kc (working)> nm
10:47:55 <Linda> Hmmmm
10:48:31 <Linda> Its in the right spot but doesn't seem strong enough
10:48:44 <Linda> Kind of spread out
10:49:06 <KorbenC> I think yes thats arty
10:49:28 <Linda> Well then 830 is wrong
10:49:47 <KorbenC> Hence why there is not longer an 830 entry :)
10:50:03 <Linda> Oh it was you
10:50:07 <Linda> Lol
10:50:34 <KorbenC> ;)
10:51:35 <Linda> Now i believe it, takes it a while to get going
10:52:30 <Linda> Sawmill ie
10:53:30 <Linda> :)
10:54:25 <Linda> Wow go arty
10:59:55 <Linda> Lots of peeps
11:00:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Don't those come out at Easter?
11:01:57 <Linda> 😊 i just saw a whole bunch of peeps dressed in yellow out by grand. Cooincidence?
11:02:38 <KorbenC> haha
11:03:14 <Linda> :)
11:03:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Maybe they just ate at the Geyser Grill.
11:03:36 <Linda> :D
11:05:43 <Linda> Split cone
11:06:00 <KorbenC> I thought eating at the Geyser Grill made you turn Green not Yellow?
11:06:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It can do both.
11:07:09 <KorbenC> lol
11:07:34 <KorbenC> At least hams has good food.
11:09:16 <Linda> This covid thing better not take offf before i get to Ynp!!
11:09:58 <Linda> OF
11:10:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am still nervous about my colorado trip.
11:11:14 <Greg (working)> I do like this view
11:11:17 <KorbenC> Because of COVID or because I am driving now?
11:11:22 <KorbenC> oh, hey Greg
11:11:23 <Linda> Greg (working), hi
11:11:31 <Greg (working)> Hi Linda
11:11:37 <Greg (working)> Hi Korben
11:12:00 <Linda> :( i guess we will juat have to keep wearing masks
11:12:15 <Greg (working)> Korben, you have to drive a road before it counts
11:12:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Both Korben but I think you will be in school when we pass through Solorado Springs.
11:12:37 <KorbenC> Greg (working), I am driving on the roads :)
11:12:46 <KorbenC> Kevin, true, which is unfortunate.
11:12:52 <Greg (working)> No more parking lots! Great job
11:14:14 <KorbenC> :) thx
11:14:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The ride to the peak will probably kill me anyway.
11:14:37 <KorbenC> lol
11:15:06 <Linda> :D
11:16:08 <KorbenC> Kevin, you should come climbing with me :P https://i.ytimg.com/vi/RIJRIldmrzA/maxresdefault.jpg That's what I am doing Sunday :)
11:16:48 <KorbenC> It's not that bad if you fall, only a 2kft drop on either side. So you will pass out before you hit the ground :D
11:17:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The reason I would fall is I would already be passed out.
11:17:44 <KorbenC> haha
11:19:01 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, is this the train ride?
11:19:07 <KorbenC> Sprinkler!
11:19:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is what I am hoping.
11:19:50 <Linda> Fingers crossed
11:20:02 <KorbenC> Kevin,you are going to turn blue from the lack of O2
11:21:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably so.
11:22:10 <KorbenC> Looking at the chart there is about 1/2 the O2 at the top as there is in Las Vegas
11:22:50 <Linda> Its not bad unless yountry to walk
11:23:17 <Linda> *you try
11:25:04 <KorbenC> I can almost gurantee you will suffer Hypoxia
11:26:25 <KorbenC> Splish splash BH
11:27:58 <Linda> I miss aurum, hill isnt the same without it
11:40:08 <Greg (working)> Anyone see the photo that Geyser Gary posted this morning of the sunrise at OF?
11:40:26 <Greg (working)> posted on FB
11:40:35 <KorbenC> where on FB?
11:40:41 <Linda> No
11:42:46 <Greg (working)> Gorgeous...
11:43:32 <Linda> Greg (working), was it on geyser page?
11:45:58 <Greg (working)> On his FB page, it is now his background pic
11:47:38 <Linda> Greg (working), wow that is stunning
11:49:14 <Linda> Marmot ie
11:52:11 <Linda> Looks like dep is heating up
11:53:47 <Linda> Sawmill stopped
11:55:01 <6> might be Atomizer back there, given Artemisia already went
11:55:45 <Linda> 6, was wondering what that was
11:57:43 <6> regarding that East Sentinel question yesterday (yes, I did read that but did not want to answer then because of things) - if visible at all, it would be between F&M and Riverside or behind either of them
11:57:56 <Arty before Art> you guys might want to delete your ie Arty posts
12:00:19 <Linda> I deleted mine
12:01:35 <Arty before Art> great
12:02:25 <Arty before Art> looks like a steamy day, easy to get starts wrong from wx
12:02:28 <Arty before Art> wc
12:02:45 <Linda> Yea there was a lot happening there
12:02:54 <KorbenC> Yup, I amended mine to fit the big "poof" at 1049
12:04:14 <KorbenC> 6, since you ignored me I just did it myself, lol :) I found that it would be right behind and slightly to the left of F&M, so close enough.
12:04:44 <KorbenC> and I do think ti would be most definitely visible wether it would be distinguishable IDK.
12:05:13 <KorbenC> Arty before Arty?, thx for the heads up on the Artemesia, I apologize for having the wrong time.
12:05:24 <6> I'd expect a slender steam column, not wide as F&M's is
12:06:35 <KorbenC> I think the size of the column would depend on the type of eruption. I think if it was erupting angled over the river that it would be wider
12:06:54 <Linda> Turban?
12:07:03 <KorbenC> Linda, yeah, 1204
12:07:13 <Linda> Yup im late
12:09:31 <KorbenC> Does anyone have a turn off time for Sawmill?
12:09:51 <KorbenC> "11:53:47 ‹Linda› Sawmill stopped" Nvm, thx Linda
12:11:22 <Linda> Not sure exactly when though
12:11:40 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
12:15:51 <Linda> Daisy
12:16:18 <Linda> Its trying
12:16:37 <KorbenC> It is doing one of those "eh, maybe, yes, no, maybe" things :P
12:16:57 <Arty before Art> Korben, I know you like your times to be correct
12:16:59 <Linda> I thought for sure it had started
12:17:17 <Arty before Art> 52 degrees does those things
12:17:28 <KorbenC> Arty before Arty?, I try my best!
12:17:57 <KorbenC> We also had a false alarm at 0830, so hopefully that didn't cause any issues.
12:17:58 <Arty before Art> when does school start Korben? In school this year?
12:18:18 <KorbenC> Yea, I go back the week after next
12:18:31 <Arty before Art> in the classroom?
12:18:37 <KorbenC> Yes, thankfully.
12:18:43 <Arty before Art> be careful
12:18:51 <KorbenC> We will be.
12:19:13 <Arty before Art> masks?
12:19:24 <KorbenC> No
12:19:34 <Arty before Art> that is not good
12:19:40 <Arty before Art> did you get vaccinated?
12:19:43 <KorbenC> Well, they are required on transportation, just not in the classroom
12:19:46 <KorbenC> Yes I did.
12:20:01 <Arty before Art> good, you could still choose to wear your mask
12:20:43 <Linda> I have one i like because it hangs around my neck
12:20:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Korben's new school uniform: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/young-man-bag-over-his-head-175091558
12:20:59 <KorbenC> I probably won't, my rule on masks is I wear them if it is required or if everyone else is wearning them.
12:21:19 <Arty before Art> I hope Delta does not find you
12:21:25 <KorbenC> I will of course have a mask in my backpack, and I would put money on them being required here soon
12:21:39 <Linda> Daisy fornaure
12:22:02 <KorbenC> Me too, all of my famillar are in good shape and fully vaccinated, and I think over 75% of my school is fully vaccinated.
12:22:09 <Linda> *for sure
12:22:13 <Arty before Art> that is great Korben
12:22:55 <Arty before Art> I wonder if the park will slow a bit after school starts up in places. It didn't last year, yet more kids were home schooled
12:23:30 <KorbenC> Grand
12:23:33 <Linda> Hrand
12:23:48 <Linda> Perfect timing
12:23:48 <KorbenC> Arty before Arty?, good question, I don't think it will.
12:24:53 <Arty before Art> I hope they can see spikes there
12:25:47 <Linda> I see some
12:26:02 <Arty before Art> I see tops
12:26:31 <KorbenC> That was another nice start
12:28:38 <KorbenC> Arty before Arty?, are you in basin?
12:28:49 <Arty before Art> no
12:28:56 <Arty before Art> only the wc for me
12:29:00 <KorbenC> oh, I was going to ask you how East Sentinal was :P
12:32:07 <Linda> Ready for a.second
12:32:12 <Linda> :)
12:32:34 <Linda> But not to be
12:32:45 <KorbenC> It could still doit :)
12:32:51 <Linda> 2nd
12:32:58 <Linda> :)
12:32:58 <KorbenC> thats nice
12:33:29 <Linda> Just in time for OF

14:00:24 <Linda> Great! Enjoy!
14:00:41 <john> thank you!
14:11:54 <KorbenC> 6 (or anyone who want's to answer) do you know if there has ever been a logger on East Sentinel, or is it not a big enough/common enough feature?
14:12:52 <KorbenC> why did I type East Sentinel, I mean to type Link.
14:13:09 <6> logger would literally be flooded away
14:13:29 <6> that is during a major
14:13:50 <KorbenC> I assume you are talking about East Sentinel (the mistype one)
14:13:59 <6> both, actually
14:14:08 <KorbenC> fair point
14:14:09 <6> East Sentinel is an island for part of the year
14:14:28 <KorbenC> Yup
14:15:23 <6> any logger would likely be flooded away by the river, with Link I don't think there's any safe spot for a logger during a major. Perhaps in the trees, but that'd require a long probe wire
14:16:13 <KorbenC> Is there like a Temperature Logger archive somewhere? I am also trying to hunt down F&M logger data
14:16:56 <6> and both are quite inactive all things considered, so a logger on either would be wasted time and/or money as far as I'm considered
14:17:45 <KorbenC> Exactly, the money would be better spent getting a public logger for BH
14:35:58 <KorbenC> If this doesnt start it it will be a long delay
14:35:59 <KorbenC> OF
14:36:05 <KorbenC> maybe
14:36:12 <KorbenC> no
14:36:44 <KorbenC> 6, I think that counts as a stall, barely any steam anymore
14:39:39 <NPS ballcap> You’re going to need to FOIA the logger data
14:40:19 <KorbenC> :( Thats way to much work, lol
14:40:31 <NPS ballcap> It is all on a federal water database and a switch just needs to be flipped to make it ALL public
14:40:41 <KorbenC> So this is what happens when we get a triple preplay delay and a stall, well over two hours now.
14:40:57 <KorbenC> NPS ballcap, they should just make it public
14:41:01 <Laura> At what point will NPS call a stall and reissue a prediction?
14:41:17 <KorbenC> Same prediction
14:41:51 <KorbenC> A preplay delay is when it has large preplay that should have started an eruption but doesnt, and a stall is when the geyser pretty much stops steaming or doing anything for a while after really big preplay
14:42:05 <KorbenC> Its just a term we use sometimes to describe why OF is being difficult
14:42:17 <NPS ballcap> They should but it is very apparent he has no interest in doing so
14:42:42 <KorbenC> for the love of god OF
14:42:56 <Laura> Thanks KorbenC. Saw at least one preplay delay when I was in the park
14:43:14 <KorbenC> 6, we need to fix OF. That is the FIFTH TIME that it should have starte
14:43:15 <KorbenC> d
14:47:34 <KorbenC> I have waited longer for this Old Faithful than I have for Steamboat, and I have seen TWO steamboats, that should explain my anger.
14:48:04 <Laura> Just did not know what I was seeing, so now I understand. Actually I think there were two preplay delays; it was really teasing the crowd
14:48:07 <KorbenC> maybe this time
14:48:11 <john> OF
14:48:13 <KorbenC> YESSSSSS
14:48:21 <KorbenC> .
14:48:21 <KorbenC> .
14:48:21 <KorbenC> .
14:48:32 <KorbenC> That OF deserved three dings because of how long we waited for it
14:50:26 <john> :thumbsup:
14:54:55 <john> Do you think we missed :daisy: ?
14:55:22 <KorbenC> It went at 1418
14:56:00 <john> :(
14:57:41 <Betty> afternoon all
15:02:39 <john> Hi Betty!
15:02:52 <john> Sawmill is going great guns!
15:03:04 <Betty> hi John
15:12:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Guns?!
15:12:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No tannerite?
15:12:46 <Betty> nope
15:12:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Darn!
15:13:09 <Betty> only you are allowed to use tannerite
15:13:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Stress relief.
15:15:39 <Betty> depression looks empty
15:17:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is why they call it the Big Boy: https://www.railpictures.net/photo/778586/
15:18:43 <Betty> nice
15:23:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The drive wheels on that beast are as tall as I am!
15:27:02 <Laura> @KevinL Beautiful! Wish I had caught it when it was in CA
15:28:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is a beautiful piece of equipment.
15:28:57 <Laura> On our way back from Yellowstone in June we stopped at Golden Spike. My first visit. Both trains were out
15:30:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is a fun place. Very interesting. I had to drag a young boy out kicking and crying.
15:30:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Doesn't look different than the 1869 picture.
15:32:03 <Laura> I will be AFK off and on, working on my Yellowstone scrapbook
15:33:22 <Laura> My craft group has a pool going for how many pages it runs to.:)
15:40:17 <6> that was a good attempt from Bee there

16:15:50 <Betty> thx for driving, john. hi Greg
16:15:53 <john> bee made my afternoon!
16:16:05 <john> thanks Betty!
16:16:17 <Greg 🤠> Hi Betty and all,
16:20:39 <Greg 🤠> of
16:21:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Can we check Great Fountain after this?
16:22:52 <Greg 🤠> Sure,
16:24:09 <Greg 🤠> Better chance of Aurum than GF
16:26:08 <Greg 🤠> Missed Daisy again
16:26:33 <KorbenC> FAN AND MORTAR?
16:26:37 <Betty> F&M?
16:26:43 <KorbenC> FAN AND MORTAR!
16:26:52 <Betty> cool
16:27:04 <KorbenC> Camop, can we pan back downbasin?
16:27:58 <Greg 🤠> clearing throat, please can we pan back downbasin. Sure, no problem.
16:28:30 <KorbenC> Greg, sorry, I am on the phone, entering into GT, watching the wc, in the car, and texting a few people
16:29:18 <Greg 🤠> Are you driving too?
16:29:26 <Greg 🤠> It's all good.
16:29:34 <KorbenC> No, that would be bad
16:30:51 <KorbenC> I think first pause for F&M
16:32:03 <KorbenC> and I think restart
16:39:29 <KorbenC> and now it is confirmed inbasin :)
16:53:16 <Betty> I call it a day, night all
16:53:37 <Greg 🤠> Night Berry, take care and enjoy
16:53:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
16:53:42 <Greg 🤠> Betty
16:58:34 <KorbenC> Dep looks very happy
17:03:47 <KorbenC> :lion: should be soon if it hasn't gone yet
17:04:10 <Greg 🤠> That is what I was thinking
17:04:16 <KorbenC> I think the cam pixelating is making Dep pool look alot higher than it is
17:05:33 <L> Any idea what entry of mine was flagged?
17:05:53 <KorbenC> Probably your Atermesia entry earlier
17:06:08 <L> I deleted it, i thought
17:06:22 <KorbenC> You did, but you will still get the email that it was flagged
17:27:14 <ChrisO> ::pokes SB:: yoohoo
17:31:58 <Greg 🤠> Looks a little smokey
17:32:17 <Greg 🤠> Or just mist
17:47:01 <john> Looks like smoke...
17:47:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Smoke
17:47:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daughter lives in Idaho Falls and says it is very smoky there
17:48:26 <Greg 🤠> Darn, hope they receive some rain to help fight the fires.
17:48:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sounds like the rain (lightning) caused them.
17:49:40 <Greg 🤠> It is so tender dry, any spark at all.
17:52:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was amazing how green some of the bushes were along the train tracks with just the little rain we had
17:52:39 <KorbenC> Lion 1748
17:53:02 <Greg 🤠> thank you
17:55:31 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
17:59:21 <Greg 🤠> OF
18:15:37 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
18:21:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Idaho traffic cams showing smoke. https://511.idaho.gov/camera/134/@-112.75949,43.96268,9?show=roadReports,wazeReports,trafficSpeeds,stationsAlert,cameras,weatherWarningsAreaEvents
18:24:59 <Greg 🤠> Pretty sad. With this current heat spell, it will only get worse, Firefighters are experiencing lack of fuel for the please and water in some places.
18:26:53 <KorbenC> It is supposed to rain up to 1mm of ash here in CO tommorow I think too
18:27:31 <KorbenC> So despite the fact that Colorado is doing amazing this wildfire season (no fires larger than 15k acres, and only one over 10k which is contained) we are still having alot of problems
18:28:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Watched some idiots start a fire on a railcam in california about a month ago. Luckily the fire call went out 1 minute after the fire started and the awesome firemen had it out in 30m!
18:28:41 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
18:28:56 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
18:29:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Leave me some autumn trees Korben!
18:29:14 <KorbenC> Grotto Fountain ie
18:29:50 <KorbenC> Greg, you have a big hour coming up. Daisy, Grotto soon, Grand soon, Probably Sawmill soon, Riverside soon, and Lion soon.
18:30:39 <Greg 🤠> Ready, set, gp
18:30:41 <Greg 🤠> go
18:33:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> But will we be able to see them?
18:34:04 <Greg 🤠> Right, smoke is getting heavier
18:35:40 <john> :(
18:37:29 <KorbenC> Seems like tommorow I am going to be getting one massive wave of smoke :(
18:38:01 <KorbenC> I feel bad for anyone outside during this smoke
18:38:39 <Greg 🤠> Ya, don't climbing a hill this weekend either.
18:38:50 <KorbenC> I am climbing Sunday
18:38:58 <KorbenC> Grotto starting
18:39:01 <KorbenC> Grotto
18:39:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We had a gazer die of the smoke in 1988.
18:39:36 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, thats not good
18:39:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was pretty intense.
18:40:43 <KorbenC> What happened, asphyxiation or something else brought on by the smoke?
18:42:34 <KorbenC> there's Sawmill
18:42:41 <Greg 🤠> Looks like sawmill
18:42:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think he already had breathing problems. Spent the whole day at Great Fountain with a radio so NPS could post it.
18:44:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1986-08-28-8603040403-story.html
18:46:48 <KorbenC> Maybe Grand will erupt in the next two mins so we don't have to have a delay
18:48:35 <Greg 🤠> Looks like it is raining pretty good at the west entrance and really smoky on south Mt Washburn view.top of
18:50:46 <6> Turban 1848. No delay (likely by seconds) but wouldn't be surprised if it acts like a delay
18:51:30 <KorbenC> It was probably like 24m 59s lol
18:56:42 <Greg 🤠> Riverside
18:57:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And a quick raven.
19:07:39 <Greg 🤠> :grand:
19:08:15 <Greg 🤠> false alarm
19:16:06 <Greg 🤠> OF window is approaching 7 mins
19:16:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lock it!
19:19:24 <6> Turban 1848:00 I=24m20s
19:19:35 <6> no delay by 40s
19:23:00 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
19:23:18 <Greg 🤠> Starting to sprinkle
19:25:36 <john> a lot of steam from grand
19:25:48 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
19:26:32 <KorbenC> Probably Turban
19:26:35 <KorbenC> Yes Turban 1923
19:37:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> FYI there is a bear behind Geyser Hill.
19:37:55 <Greg 🤠> kool, better location?
19:38:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No. I guess it is wandering.
19:39:02 <Greg 🤠> ok, I am ready to go find him/her. I miss me my bears
19:39:26 <Greg 🤠> of
19:40:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Me too. https://www.candymachines.com/Giant-Gummy-Bears-P2098.aspx?placa&gclid=Cj0KCQjwu7OIBhCsARIsALxCUaNGswnDp4r_Vrp4bvTAKuypr0Teygsva770tGX_pb-we5uT9WJZH_EaArvFEALw_wcB
19:42:24 <Greg 🤠> https://youtu.be/s2KNoUs1dgU
19:42:54 <KorbenC> Was that him near Dome?
19:44:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not sure. Not much to see to identify.
19:44:50 <linda> evening
19:45:07 <Greg 🤠> Howdy Linda
19:45:14 <linda> Greg 🤠, howdy
19:45:42 <linda> did you find your bear>
19:46:09 <Greg 🤠> nope
19:46:23 <linda> :(
19:46:41 <Greg 🤠> :grand:
19:47:21 <linda> big grand
19:47:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Camo Grand
19:57:32 <Greg 🤠> Well Korben, did we catch them all?
19:58:22 <KorbenC> All but Lion, which is quite impressive
19:58:41 <Greg 🤠> The nights not over
19:59:54 <KorbenC> True, we will probably catch it around 845
20:05:59 <LynnS> KevinL—Bob Hoffman did not die of the smoke in 1988.
20:07:01 <LynnS> Bob was here in Yellowstone part of the summer of 1989 and lived several years after that.
20:07:30 <KorbenC> Hi Lynn, good to see you again!
20:09:12 <LynnS> Just checking in now and then. I’m headed home Sunday then back August 19 or 20.
20:09:51 <KorbenC> Great. Hopefully you are enjoying the park.
20:10:39 <LynnS> Enjpying everything except the smoke.
20:11:12 <LynnS> Have a good evening everyone.
20:11:17 <KorbenC> Yea :( Hopefully it gets better
20:11:23 <KorbenC> have a good one Lynn.
20:11:28 <Greg 🤠> Hi Lynn bye Lynn
20:12:11 <KorbenC> Wait, I have a question. So we use a google group for out Geyser Alerts.
20:12:40 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
20:12:51 <KorbenC> I can create a text group on my phone (I think for free), add as many phone numbers as I want, and it works like text so would work with verizon
20:13:19 <KorbenC> So, why do we use a google group instead of a simpler text group?
20:13:35 <Greg 🤠> Do you have unlimited data / text messaging?
20:14:12 <KorbenC> I have unlimited talk and text I think
20:16:14 <KorbenC> Goodnight all!
20:16:31 <linda> KorbenC, night
20:16:40 <Greg 🤠> Night Korben, enjoy your weekend, and have a good walkabout on Sunday
20:30:44 <john> Looks like a steamy night!
20:32:31 <linda> for sure
20:32:49 <john> :thumbsup:
20:33:10 <Greg 🤠> good way for that bear to hide
20:37:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Steamed & smoked.
20:47:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The Big Boy should be on the Kearney NE railcam Sunday and the Kansas City cam Monday Greg.
20:48:13 <Greg 🤠> kool beaqns, thanks, I have made note
20:48:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is the "schedule". https://www.up.com/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm
20:51:28 <Greg 🤠> My brother in TX was hoping it would take the southern route so he could see it.
20:52:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Where in Texas is he?
20:52:35 <Greg 🤠> Pharr
20:53:23 <kcmule> OF
20:53:35 <Greg 🤠> Dang I missed of window
20:54:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Houston is a far south as it goes so that would be quite a drive. You should make reservations with him for the 2024 eclipse.
20:55:40 <Greg 🤠> right, that area is going to be crowed big time
20:57:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My daughter lived in Rexburg almost at the center to totality for the 2017 eclipse. It was awesome. https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/50723278721/in/dateposted-public/
20:57:54 <Greg 🤠> That is where John used to live
20:58:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A bit cool there.
21:00:44 <Greg 🤠> I am going to call it a night, so if you want to take over, go for it.
21:01:02 <Greg 🤠> Have a great evening and weekend, thanks for tagging along.
21:01:13 <Greg 🤠> The controls have been released. Night all
21:01:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just leave it in a good position. I am already doing about 4 things at once.
21:01:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
21:02:07 <Greg 🤠> I hear ya
