08:51:01 <LindaG> Daisy
09:06:01 <LindaG> So donthe general stores in YNP sell ice?
09:06:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I believe so.
09:07:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Are you staying in park?
09:07:52 <LindaG> Yea staying at Of cabins
09:08:32 <LindaG> Other question do the OF cabins have a fridge? Indoubt it but not sure
09:09:35 <KorbenC> LindaG, which cabin are you staying in?
09:10:15 <LindaG> Which? One with a bath thats all i know
09:10:25 <KorbenC> Yes General stores sell ice.
09:10:51 <KorbenC> and they do not have a fridge.
09:11:07 <LindaG> KorbenC, excellent
09:11:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF don't have a fridge, but they have an ice machine. If I have a cooler I usually get an ice block for it.
09:17:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Do you have a map of the cabins Linda?
09:21:02 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, dont have map but inthink its online
09:22:52 <KorbenC> LindaG, they will give you a map I think
09:23:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The ice machines are in a shed next to the old community restrooms. Your room key will open the door. When you check in, ask about the ice.
09:23:07 <KorbenC> Or at least my dad somehow came across a map while I was out in the basin, so they are somewhere.
09:23:27 <KorbenC> Kevin, you didn't even need a key to do that this year
09:23:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You get one when you check in.
09:29:35 <LindaG> :thumbsup:
09:33:06 <.don> Sawmill?
09:33:17 <LindaG> Yup
09:47:05 <Kitt> must be an F & M wait day
09:47:35 <KorbenC> its only 36hrs PE
09:48:19 <Kitt> where is Jagged Spring?
09:49:00 <Kitt> guessing it is near Ragged Spring
09:51:47 <linda> OF
09:53:13 <KorbenC> Kitt, its near Cliff
09:59:37 <LindaG> I hear music ☺
10:00:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The maid did it!
10:00:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am ready
10:01:07 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, with the candlestick in the study
10:01:20 <LindaG> Controls released
10:01:32 <LindaG> Cya going to lunch
10:02:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have fun
11:51:45 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha and good morning, all!
11:52:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
11:52:07 <kiawe (at work)> Anything notable happen overnight?
11:52:07 <KorbenC> hi
11:52:39 <KorbenC> nope, besides our BH this morning it has not been an entertaining day
11:52:49 <kiawe (at work)> *dumps a bit of papaya down front ::embarrassed::*
11:53:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Been a NoDoz morning
11:53:34 <kiawe (at work)> At least *touch wood* the camera appears to be behaving. For the moment :lol:
11:53:48 <KorbenC> Kevin, we will have a Lion in about 25mins too I think
11:54:37 <kiawe (at work)> Is F&M settling in to being active on a regular schedule?
11:54:47 <KorbenC> It never does, lol
11:55:03 <kiawe (at work)> Hey, I can hope!
11:55:16 <KorbenC> It's intervals are varying between 2.5days and 7 days recently, which is about the most regular it can get :D
11:55:42 <kiawe (at work)> Needs prunes :p
11:55:59 <KorbenC> lol
11:56:16 <KorbenC> I think soap works better ;)
11:56:41 <kiawe (at work)> Kilauea is completely idle at the moment, although there are some signs the magma is slowly refilling. No live lava to be seen.
11:57:08 <KorbenC> Thats 'good', its good that it isn't destroying things but it would be nice to see some activity again
11:57:09 <kiawe (at work)> People on the E Rift Zone don't mind, though.
11:59:57 <kiawe (at work)> Volcanoes NP is still scenic, lava is icing on the cake.
12:01:57 <kiawe (at work)> Going to leave the bandwidth for others doing work; will check in again later. Aloha!
12:02:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye
12:04:21 <El Popo> 7.2 quake in the Philippines 15 minutes ago. No tsunamie expected.
12:04:46 <El Popo> "tsunami" is the most common spelling
12:05:16 <KorbenC> Why do you say no Tsunami expected?
12:05:21 <KorbenC> https://www.tsunami.gov/
12:05:32 <KorbenC> Tsunami Threat Earthquake: Magnitude: 7.2Origin Time: 8/11/2021, 11:46:14 AM Depth: 31 mi.Lat: 6.5° N Lon: 126.8° E Location: MINDANAO PHILIPPINES
12:05:34 <El Popo> Just heard the announcement
12:05:52 <El Popo> Revise that; not expected for U.S. West Coast.
12:06:14 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: That makes more sense.
12:06:33 <El Popo> El Popo = Jimbo. I'm watching the Volcano Live feed on the Smart TV (which commonly shows this Webcam, too)
12:06:47 <KorbenC> Hi Jimbo
12:07:00 <El Popo> Hi Korben, saw you've been climbing around
12:07:27 <KorbenC> I have, enjoyed that climb last weekend. :)
12:08:34 <KorbenC> Nice Lion roar
12:25:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wonder if Lion is a one and done.
12:34:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Guess that answers my question
13:32:52 <Betty> hi all
13:33:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
13:33:53 <Betty> hi Kevin

13:49:36 <Betty> hi Katie
13:49:45 <Katie> Hi Betty
13:52:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Was that the 3rd Lion?
13:53:03 <KorbenC> I think that was just a roar
13:53:27 <Betty> hi KorbenC
13:54:02 <Betty> I see a spinning circle. Does that count?
13:54:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Depends on what you have been drinking.
13:54:37 <KorbenC> lol
13:54:48 <Betty> hmmm, peach tea
13:55:48 <KorbenC> a peach tea cocktail or just peach tea?
13:56:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How long was it sitting in the sun?
13:56:17 <Betty> hard to believe, but only peach tea
13:56:28 <Betty> hahahaha
13:56:30 <KorbenC> mhmm, sure, totaly. ;)
13:56:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No pretzel
13:56:47 <Betty> nope
13:56:56 <Betty> but I had one yesterday
14:20:15 <KorbenC> Grand

15:17:38 <linda> Katie, Katie, ot it
15:17:51 <linda> well how cool is that
15:18:02 <JarnoO> HK should be happy - he missed the last 2020 by just hours
15:18:14 <linda> it couldn't wait 3 weeks for me?
15:18:35 <KorbenC> You might still get it
15:19:01 <Jeff> Got to see it at start
15:19:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice!
15:19:18 <KorbenC> How are the thumps?
15:19:20 <SantaFe108 GO G> yay!!!
15:19:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BIG flood.
15:19:26 <Lori S> Yay!
15:19:55 <SantaFe108 GO G> also rip giantess goes off like 1 1/2 weeks after I leave
15:20:04 <SantaFe108 GO G> this is so cool
15:20:13 <linda> SantaFe108 GO GIANTESS, :)
15:20:14 <KorbenC> Hopefully it will start having bi-weekly eruptions now
15:20:32 <linda> well i know what I'm doing today
15:20:42 <SantaFe108 GO G> I saw F&M though I'm happy
15:21:19 <AYates> There's some big ones
15:21:28 <Kat1> OMG! Go Giantess!
15:21:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 3 of the last 4 Giantess started on my shift!
15:22:02 <KorbenC> Hi Jarno, welcome back from the anonymous :)
15:22:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We woke Jarno up?
15:22:19 <linda> it was hot this morning
15:24:13 <Jeff> Korben haven't been able to check cause work
15:24:29 <StaceyM> I was in the park 3 weeks ago...and saw some nice boils on Giantess while waiting on a Beehive eruption (7/23). I told my parents I expected Giantess to erupt in the next 3-4 weeks with the boils I was watching....glad she didn't disappoint. :)
15:24:58 <KorbenGiantess=> yea, SF saw some of those boils when he was there.
15:25:01 <linda> StaceyM, yeah was boiling this morning too
15:25:39 <Greg mobile> Linda, must be on cam
15:25:50 <Kitt> maybe this will fix Aurum
15:25:56 <linda> Greg mobile, kevin is
15:26:06 <linda> Kitt, oh I hope so
15:26:07 <SantaFe108 GO G> I saw very frequent boiling on 7/29, and Vault was bubbling too
15:26:13 <Greg mobile> Congrats Kevin
15:26:39 <KorbenGiantess=> This makes me happy no doubt
15:26:41 <SantaFe108 GO G> Kevin seems to be the Giantess conjurer
15:26:51 <linda> this is fun to watch
15:26:52 <StaceyM> I had a video of a nice push of water over the north rim
15:26:55 <Kat1> Not sleeping now Kevin!:)
15:27:18 <KorbenGiantess=> StaceyM, would you mind emailing that to me?
15:27:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Made my day for sure!
15:27:53 <john> Wow! Great!
15:28:03 <KorbenGiantess=> john, hi
15:28:07 <Kat1> Hi John and all!
15:28:40 <JarnoO> cam surely won't go anywhere else now except for the Hill :)
15:28:41 <john> Hi Korben, thank to the DM!
15:28:47 <john> Hi Kat1!
15:28:51 <KorbenGiantess=> YW, figured you would want to know
15:29:01 <john> :thumbsup:
15:29:20 <john> I appreciate it!
15:29:25 <KorbenGiantess=> :)
15:29:34 <KorbenGiantess=> You are like the 20th person I have send that same thing too, lol
15:29:46 <john> :thumbsup:
15:30:05 <SantaFe108 GO G> yeah thanks Korben I probably wouldn't have found out otherwise until like an hour later
15:30:23 <john> Who is on the cam?
15:30:26 <KorbenGiantess=> I think half the people here got my "GAINTESS GIANTESS GIANTESS GIANTESS GIANTESS" text, haha.
15:30:29 <KorbenGiantess=> Kevin I think
15:30:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is me John.
15:30:58 <Mario> Awesome!
15:31:04 <KorbenGiantess=> Hi Ryan, come to watch Giantess? :)
15:31:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You on deck?
15:31:07 <john> Kevin did you catch if from the beginning?
15:31:29 <john> No
15:31:35 <KorbenGiantess=> john, we were down basin
15:31:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not quite. I would have but Castle was about 15m into an eruption.
15:31:51 <AYates> I was sending an email and my dedicated webcam/linux monitor caught my attention coming off castle
15:32:03 <john> :thumbsup:
15:32:06 <R> Just peeking in to see it for a bit. I’m literally in the process of relocating.
15:32:18 <KorbenGiantess=> R, nice, but Giatness, wohohoho!
15:32:46 <R> Yeah. Figured it could stop unloading boxes for a few minutes.
15:33:07 <KorbenGiantess=> :D
15:33:23 <KorbenGiantess=> I am really hoping it starts having more eruptions now, like alot more.
15:33:38 <JarnoO> in your dreams, for now
15:33:44 <KorbenGiantess=> hey, it could!
15:33:59 <KorbenGiantess=> Just the fact that I am sitting here watching Giantess erupt is proof that anything can happen, haha
15:34:02 <JarnoO> 'for now' being the keywords :)
15:34:11 <KorbenGiantess=> true true
15:34:13 <Kitt> we had two last year
15:34:20 <d> Giantess first look from webcam https://youtu.be/QMBdg-BfdzM
15:34:31 <KorbenGiantess=> I will say though, I do not like looking at the empty abyss pool
15:34:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And the cam is behaving and looks great.
15:35:16 <Kitt> I thought it was low, I didn't know Abyss pool was empty
15:35:42 <KorbenGiantess=> You know what I mean
15:35:43 <KorbenGiantess=> lol
15:36:07 <R> Enjoy steam phase. I’ll have to watch the capture.
15:36:11 <Kitt> so you were exagerating?
15:36:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You are going to have a fun shift John. This is one that you don't need to show OF.
15:36:24 <JarnoO> and that's B1 finished
15:36:29 <KorbenGiantess=> I mean I don't enjoy looking at Giantess when it has no water in it
15:36:56 <Betty> Vault is steamy
15:37:06 <KorbenGiantess=> B2
15:37:11 <JarnoO> next burst will likely lead to steam
15:37:27 <KorbenGiantess=> This burst has alot more steam and air in it
15:37:35 <AYates> Looks like mixed
15:37:40 <Kitt> Vault often waits until 3 to 5 hours after Giantess starts and can wait up to about 8 hours
15:37:58 <Kat1> There it goes
15:38:01 <Betty> thx Kitt :-)
15:38:06 <JarnoO> Giantess is trying for the next burst but so far it's not particularly sustained
15:38:16 <JarnoO> just preliminary
15:38:17 <Jeff> I wanna get to boardwalk but can't leave work
15:38:29 <KorbenGiantess=> Jeff, could you feel the thumping?
15:38:31 <Kitt> Giantess is a marathon, not a sprint
15:38:43 <Lori S> Jeff, Take a potty break. ;)
15:38:50 <Kitt> Was Jeff on geyser hill?
15:38:53 <KorbenGiantess=> Lori S, just a 6hr one :)
15:39:50 <KorbenGiantess=> Kitt, but can't marathons just be really long sprints? ;)
15:40:05 <Jeff> No I'm at work kitt
15:40:08 <Lori S> Jeff, Fake a cough & suddenly feel fatigued.
15:40:13 <Audrey> when did giantess start?
15:40:20 <KorbenGiantess=> 1511 ns
15:40:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 1511
15:40:31 <Jeff> Yeah that
15:40:33 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, congrats!
15:40:40 <Audrey> nice
15:40:46 <Jeff> I was jumping around screaming so didn't get start time lol
15:40:53 <Kitt> I mean that Giantess isn't known for the tallest spikes, but for spiking off and on for up to 2 days
15:41:09 <linda> Jeff, :)
15:41:13 <KorbenGiantess=> Kitt, yes, I know :)
15:41:25 <linda> Jeff, First time?
15:41:29 <Jeff> 3 giantess eruptions 1 start
15:41:56 <linda> Jeff,oh you're an old timer
15:42:15 <linda> there is that black hole, gives me the willies
15:42:22 <Lori S> Jeff, Look at it this way: How many people can feel Giantess start while at work?
15:42:34 <SantaFe108 GO G> Gtg for an hour or so, go Giantess!
15:42:49 <AYates> Theres some steam on vault
15:42:59 <El Popo> An interval less than a year? And tomorrow's my birthday? >(>(>(
15:43:09 <Mario> Happy birthday!
15:43:26 <Jeff> I got lucky I went to front door to check geyser hill and saw heavy boiling
15:43:31 <d> Giantes first look from cam https://youtu.be/QMBdg-BfdzM
15:44:05 <JarnoO> B2
15:44:06 <AYates> B2
15:44:41 <JarnoO> likely the one for the steamphase so cam may be better off zoomed out
15:44:51 <linda> better than fire works
15:44:58 <KorbenGiantess=> can we zoom out a bit?
15:45:04 <KorbenGiantess=> Some of the bursts are getting past the screen
15:45:08 <El Popo> The first look was right close to the start
15:45:17 <Karen> Looking back over previous eruptions, I'd really thought I'd seen Giantess in May 2000, and it isn't listed
15:45:19 <KorbenGiantess=> thx
15:45:53 <El Popo> Thanks Mario
15:46:04 <linda> I hope Joe is recording
15:46:19 <d> he is
15:46:35 <linda> :thumbsup::)
15:46:45 <Betty> cool :i:
15:46:45 <d> first look https://youtu.be/QMBdg-BfdzM
15:46:58 <linda> Betty, hi
15:47:07 <Betty> hey linda
15:47:19 <Kitt> I hope you get to be on the hill for a start Jeff
15:47:29 <Kitt> then you can enjoy the thumps
15:48:14 <Betty> he had 1 start I guess
15:48:50 <Betty> nice spikes
15:49:20 <KorbenGiantess=> Hi Bruce, everyone who has joined in the last few mins
15:49:57 <Brucej> Gorgeous eruption. Much better than last time.
15:50:09 <Betty> bummer, but time for sleep. Enjoy the show
15:50:11 <linda> Brucej, hi
15:50:19 <JarnoO> cya Betty
15:50:27 <linda> and it's a real nice day
15:50:32 <Kitt> when was your last time Bruce?
15:50:45 <Brucej> Hi everyone. Missing ynp overtly!!!
15:50:48 <linda> hi lardis
15:50:59 <linda> Brucej, I'll be there in 3 weeks
15:51:03 <JarnoO> Transition to steam, if at all, should be any minute now
15:51:10 <Kitt> the one after last Labor Day?
15:51:10 <Brucej> Kitt, I think it was last year?
15:51:35 <Kitt> the one after Labor Day was awesome
15:51:43 <Brucej> That sounds about right, Labor Day.
15:51:43 <Roo> Ay yoooo
15:51:50 <JarnoO> if not, the third burst could also trigger a steamphase
15:51:59 <Kitt> the one before that was a slow starter
15:52:01 <Brucej> It felt and looked short.
15:52:31 <linda> howdy greg
15:53:03 <JarnoO> alternatively, if this Giantess is going to be a slow one as well, this can go on for over an hour before it finally commits
15:53:35 <Greg 🤠> Howdy Linda, thanks for the notice on FB, this is awesome. I had to log in via cell earlier to see.
15:54:02 <linda> Greg 🤠, glad you could make it :)
15:54:22 <Greg 🤠> Me too
15:54:35 <JarnoO> wouldn't actually be surprising if it follows the slow scenario - had not had an eruption for nearly a year so the system is probably more water than steam
15:54:36 <linda> Greg 🤠, did John make it
15:55:09 <Kitt> this eruption has already had nice spikes
15:55:18 <KorbenGiantess=> Jarno, so it takes a Giatness eruption to bring you out of hiding? Anyways, glad you are back :)
15:55:19 <Greg 🤠> I'll text him
15:55:27 <KorbenGiantess=> Yes he made it
15:55:32 <KorbenGiantess=> I messaged him
15:55:39 <R> I managed to sit down for dinner. I’ll watch until my battery goes.
15:56:14 <Michelle> Are you ready for me?
15:56:20 <linda> KorbenGiantess=Forever, :thumbsup:
15:56:29 <AYates> I'm waiting for B2 to end so I can make a quick 10 minute drive and setup again
15:56:32 <Greg 🤠> John has been texted
15:56:42 <linda> Michelle, oh lucky duck you get Giantess
15:56:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not much to do! Controls released
15:57:14 <KorbenGiantess=> Michelle, FYI, Camops don't have to watch OF at all when Giantess is erupting
15:57:20 <Kat1> Welcome back Michelle!
15:57:34 <Michelle> Linda, does protocol keep you on Giantess, or do I still need to go to OF?
15:57:37 <El Popo> I did not know there was a Giantess clause
15:57:52 <El Popo> But I am in favor of it
15:57:54 <Kat1> hahaha
15:57:54 <linda> Michelle, I think they would let you stay on OF
15:57:58 <Katie> Michelle, Giantess is an exception, as an exceptional event.
15:58:08 <Greg 🤠> Michelle, welcome back. If you don't do OF, then you lose your bonus
15:58:08 <linda> oops stay on Giantess I meant
15:58:17 <Kat1> :lol:
15:58:18 <JarnoO> when Giantess goes, OF is degradated to second rank :)
15:58:19 <lardis> o please stay on G
15:58:32 <KorbenGiantess=> yea, no need to watch OF when Giantess is erupting
15:58:41 <linda> We stayed on giantess for 2 days last time
15:58:44 <Kat1> Guess some of us have missed lots of bonuses!
15:58:46 <El Popo> good word, combination of "degraded" and "demoted"
15:58:46 <lardis> this is very exciting
15:59:07 <linda> lardis, :thumbsup: I knew I'd convert you
15:59:19 <john> :thumbsup:
15:59:21 <Michelle> Just wanted to know priorities.
15:59:30 <linda> Michelle, Good to ask
15:59:38 <KorbenGiantess=> Where is the cam going?
15:59:42 <linda> Giantess and Wolves win
15:59:48 <Michelle> Hmmm, all I get is the Bosch screen when I sign in
15:59:51 <Kitt> You are correct to ask other cam operators Michelle
15:59:55 <Greg 🤠> Last time, she stopped just before my shift, sad shift that day
16:00:00 <Kat1> Amen Linda!
16:00:01 <linda> uh oh
16:00:07 <KorbenGiantess=> Ehm
16:00:09 <Katie> Oh, crap!
16:00:16 <john> No who moved the cam?
16:00:18 <JarnoO> who poked the console? :)
16:00:18 <Greg 🤠> abyone logging in
16:00:24 <KorbenGiantess=> there we go
16:00:37 <d> I fixed it
16:00:49 <JarnoO> thanks
16:00:52 <Greg 🤠> kool, thanks
16:01:02 <linda> I put it back
16:01:26 <Jeff> Break time now outside watching giantess
16:01:33 <KorbenGiantess=> Camop, might be a good idea to pull back a bit
16:01:39 <Lori S> Jeff, yay@
16:01:46 <Lori S> yay!
16:01:50 <Katie> Yup, big bursts will be out of frame
16:01:55 <Michelle> I logged in, but have no screen to control.
16:02:03 <linda> Michelle, ok
16:02:14 <KorbenGiantess=> Can someone please pull out a bit?
16:02:15 <Kitt> I see Ranger Gill is doing trash cleanup
16:02:43 <Jeff> I've been trying to kick people out of store to watch this lol
16:02:51 <linda> Michelle, who has control?
16:03:24 <Lori S> Jeff, just tell em there's a bear at Black Sand or something
16:03:39 <Kitt> Except the fountain is only open for one more hour and the store is only open for 2
16:03:51 <Michelle> I'm not controlling it. I don't even have a screen. Do I want to refresh or log out and log back in?
16:03:52 <Jeff> I saw a grizzly over by biscuit a few days ago
16:04:07 <Lori S> Jeff, nice
16:04:16 <linda> Michelle, I'm not either. John are you on controls?
16:04:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I would log out and log in again Michelle.
16:04:39 <d> Michelle, refresh see if you get it back
16:04:43 <Kat1> I would too - does that sometimes
16:05:07 <Jeff> Nice bursts
16:05:16 <linda> When it went awry I logged in and hit giantess but someone else has it
16:05:23 <linda> I logged out
16:05:30 <d> linda, the controls are working for me
16:05:38 <Michelle> Thanks Kevin. It worked.
16:05:54 <linda> d, it worked for me too
16:06:37 <linda> Michelle, you are good?
16:08:01 <Michelle> Linda, yes. I can see the screen and controls are working!
16:08:08 <linda> yay
16:08:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
16:08:17 <Kat1> Great!
16:08:27 <linda> look at all those people at OF, why are they there, don't they see G
16:09:16 <Kitt> Most people are unaware that there are a lot of geysers at Old Faithful
16:09:24 <Katie> They don't know it's special. They have only ever heard of OF
16:09:50 <linda> I would think they could see it
16:10:08 <Kitt> and the rangers will not send them up there, because that would be too many people on that part of the boardwalk
16:10:17 <linda> ah
16:10:28 <steve> wake up now little Plume.
16:10:54 <Michelle> Just checking controls. Sorry!
16:11:14 <Mario> steve: Ditto
16:11:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And Aurum
16:12:19 <steve> Ya think I'd just be happy with Giantess, but I want more.
16:12:54 <KorbenGiantess=> We need plume back
16:12:56 <linda> steve, :) never enough
16:13:12 <JarnoO> finally Giantess is looking more active
16:13:41 <Kat1> Nice!!
16:13:57 <Michelle> Sound effects from the boardwalk....oooh away oooh!
16:15:29 <TomK> giantess!
16:15:39 <Kat1> :thumbsup:
16:16:14 <TomK> Got a text from my "contact" at the OFVEC
16:16:55 <Kitt> your contact is a hardworker Tom
16:17:07 <steve> For what its worth, when I tried to use the NPS webcam the feed kept failing. This feed seems to work much better. Likely due to my old Computer
16:17:17 <d> TomK, video close to the start https://youtu.be/QMBdg-BfdzM
16:19:36 <Kat> Like Linda - fun watching!
16:21:10 <Michelle> I should have stayed home and just watched the web cam! Much more relaxing!
16:21:36 <linda> Michelle, >(
16:22:21 <d> Michelle, how was your visit/ did your leg let you get around as you wished?
16:23:13 <AT> thanks for the text on Giantess! what a treat.
16:24:21 <TomK> Thanks for the video link
16:24:45 <lardis> linda, i'm mesmerized, what fun, now how do i tear myself away to cook supper?
16:24:54 <linda> lardis, you don't
16:25:00 <Kat> Order in!
16:25:02 <linda> :)
16:25:05 <TomK> lol
16:25:16 <Kat> I already did! LOL
16:25:17 <lardis> the new diet plan, GIANTESS
16:25:27 <linda> there ya go!
16:25:43 <linda> lardis, this doesn't happen too often
16:25:55 <Kat> It's definitely good for a few pounds!
16:26:13 <linda> :)
16:26:22 <KorbenGiantess=> OF static
16:26:23 <lardis> that's what makes it so special. You just told me a giantess yesterday, and VOILa!
16:26:38 <d> lardis, they know the way to McDonalds :)
16:26:40 <Kat> This is awesome - but doesn't beat my walk up Giantess!
16:27:06 <Eric> WTH!
16:27:15 <linda> Eric, surprise!
16:27:16 <Ranger Wolf> Thank you for the text alert, watching from the Canyon VC, heading down at 5!
16:27:16 <KorbenGiantess=> Hi fellow mountain man
16:27:24 <Eric> Wow....thanks for the txt alert!
16:27:43 <Rr> You haven't missed steam phase yet.
16:27:51 <linda> doesn't say in GT when last eruption was, about a year ago I think
16:27:52 <Eric> Been in meetings all afternoon and just saw the alert now!
16:27:53 <KorbenGiantess=> looks like b2 is trying to end
16:28:03 <Eric> Thanks Korben
16:28:06 <Kitt> which eruption was that Kat?
16:28:32 <linda> thx
16:28:35 <Eric> Almost a year exactly Linda!
16:28:43 <linda> yeah
16:28:54 <JarnoO> B2 almost quit there
16:29:25 <linda> I think the one when I was driving is the one that was a year ago
16:29:28 <Eric> No reports of in basin thumping beforehand?
16:29:31 <JarnoO> looking good again
16:29:42 <KorbenGiantess=> Eric, nobody was on the hill
16:29:46 <Eric> Russell just mentions water from Castle.
16:29:59 <Kitt> So the first one last year or the second one?
16:29:59 <Kat> Ahh - 2005 if I'm not mistaken
16:30:16 <Kitt> oh, a while back
16:30:28 <d> Eric, video close to start https://youtu.be/QMBdg-BfdzM
16:30:32 <Kat> You're right Linda
16:30:37 <Eric> A year since the last one Kitt
16:30:50 <Eric> Thanks d
16:30:50 <linda> Kat, :thumbsup:
16:30:58 <KorbenGiantess=> c'mon Giantess, you are so close to steam
16:31:03 <Kitt> I know, Bill and I were there for the 2nd eruption
16:31:18 <linda> Kat, but after mine, Kevin had one also
16:31:37 <Kat> Yes
16:32:11 <Kitt> the day after Steamboat erupted
16:32:31 <JarnoO> now looking good for steam
16:32:33 <KorbenGiantess=> Jets are getting angled and more developped, looks like it is trying to get into steam
16:33:14 <Kitt> looks like breeze direction changed
16:33:31 <JarnoO> won't be strong steamphase I think, given how slow B2 went
16:33:44 <JarnoO> almost at 50 minutes for this one
16:33:48 <Kat> brb - time to unwrap that cheesesteak I ordered!
16:34:02 <Eric> Anyone check on YFT axis images?
16:34:26 <Eric> Fire it up boys!
16:34:35 <JarnoO> 1507 or 1510 per YFT
16:34:43 <Eric> Thanks Jarno!
16:34:55 <KorbenGiantess=> agree with JO on those signature
16:35:06 <Eric> I couldn't tell from the normal seismo, but I assumed you guys already knew the answer :-D
16:35:15 <JarnoO> that's just based on YFT on this page - not looked into Swarm at all yet
16:35:30 <Eric> ohhh, I hoped that was from SWARM!
16:35:31 <KorbenGiantess=> Swarm agrees
16:35:40 <linda> Kat, order in! yaya
16:35:52 <Eric> Thanks Korben
16:35:59 <Mike J> Just saw the post on Facebook. See, it's good for something
16:36:13 <linda> Mike J, :)
16:36:24 <Eric> You should post the SWARM graph to FB geyser discussion too if you haven't. Give the masses something to fight about :-P
16:36:46 <KorbenGiantess=> lol, i will pass
16:36:50 <Eric> hahaha
16:37:07 <linda> KorbenGiantess=Forever, oh go ahead >(
16:37:25 <Kat> :D
16:37:50 <JarnoO> a hard no from me - besides that I don't want to have anything to do with it anymore, I've already got enough of that kind of stuff on my head
16:37:59 <JarnoO> it = Facebook
16:38:03 <KorbenGiantess=> Jarno :(
16:38:13 <Eric> I will post it if you send me the image. I don't mind taking the heat...i am good at ignoring people.
16:38:29 <KorbenGiantess=> but I agree with Jarno, I am just on the other side of the things that are in his head :)
16:38:38 <KorbenGiantess=> Eric, hmm.
16:39:05 <Kat> The people have thinned out!
16:39:23 <Kitt> of course then you get to find out how many people think Giantess erupting means Yellowstone is going to blow
16:39:25 <Eric> Their loss Jarno.
16:39:34 <linda> getting tired, they are starting to sit down
16:39:40 <Eric> @Kitt It's not?
16:40:00 <lardis> That's what i was waiting for!
16:40:04 <Kitt> they also think they are safe outside the park
16:40:10 <linda> lardis, :)
16:40:11 <JarnoO> when Giantess is in steam it would be a good time to check upon the rest of the Hill
16:40:17 <KorbenGiantess=> MG will be crazy
16:40:36 <Eric> Yep, me wonders if the hill is doing anything nutty!
16:40:54 <lardis> its time for split screen
16:40:59 <Kitt> I have seen eruptions with 3 steam phases and two just had one then switched back to water
16:41:10 <Eric> BTW, Russell has Giantess active at 1508
16:41:59 <linda> when does vault usually start?
16:42:09 <Eric> and by active, he knew something was up from Castle at that time.
16:42:26 <Kitt> 3 to 5.5 hour up to 8 hours after start
16:42:48 <linda> Kitt, :thumbsup:
16:42:50 <Eric> I hope Jeff L can make it out for the giantess
16:42:59 <JarnoO> MG already has a lot to do - Fagradalshraun not stopping (no, it won't go boom), Kilauea doing seismic excersizes (no, it won't go boom either), Great Sitking growing a lava dome 300 meters (328 yards) across (maybe goes boom, but by no means that's a certainty)
16:43:14 <KorbenGiantess=> She had time for Sawmill
16:43:31 <Eric> Hahaha
16:43:37 <JarnoO> but I guess Giantess is right on her radar again (no, that won't go boom either)
16:44:09 <Eric> I would like Giant to go boom again please!
16:44:27 <KorbenGiantess=> We want plume
16:44:31 <Eric> 2.5 years since the last giant now!
16:44:46 <linda> :(
16:45:12 <JarnoO> also a fluke for this Giantess is that it happened after a 7.1 EQ in the Philippines and after seismic waves passed through Yellowstone. No, the 7.1 quake did not cause Giantess
16:45:16 <Eric> It might have gone in that timeframe, but I don't think we have logger or true confirmation.
16:45:17 <KorbenGiantess=> Eric, mastiff has had standing water when Bijour slows down. Or at least it had a few of thsoe when I was there
16:46:27 <Kitt> I hope Vault waits for Ranger Wolf
16:46:27 <linda> kevin might win the 'most giantess starts' award
16:48:49 <Kat> He'll take the bonus! LOL
16:49:21 <linda> Kat, Big bucks man!
16:49:29 <JarnoO> I hope the logger didn't flush away in during the initial flood
16:49:40 <linda> and they'll probably take money from us to pay for it. lol
16:50:34 <Karen> Two times when I saw Giantess, I saw Giant two days later, but that is just coincidence as well!
16:50:51 <JarnoO> fingers crossed :)
16:51:13 <linda> that would be nice
16:52:48 <Eric> Yep, wish there was a connection :-D But no giants last year after the giantess eruptions.
16:53:05 <Eric> But OF always erupts after giantess is done :-P
16:53:50 <linda> two - two and half years ago, it was giant and steamboat, if I remember correctly
16:54:00 <Ben VL> No steamphase at this point?
16:54:07 <KorbenGiantess=> Not yet
16:54:12 <JarnoO> a slow start just like last year's first
16:54:23 <KorbenGiantess=> We are in B2. There have been a few nice tries to go into Steam, but to no avail
16:54:34 <KorbenGiantess=> and hi Ben, I was wondering when oyu would show up
16:54:39 <JarnoO> it's hinting at going to steam but not been convincing yet
16:55:08 <Ben VL> What about size compared to last year's so far?
16:55:14 <Kitt> I thought you were in the park Ben?
16:55:17 <KorbenGiantess=> taller
16:55:36 <KorbenGiantess=> I think because it is having alot more jetting than bursting
16:55:43 <JarnoO> taller than last year's first but by no means nearing the second one that year
16:55:58 <Ben VL> I moved it to the week after next ::
16:56:00 <Ben VL> :/
16:56:18 <JarnoO> that is at this point in time
16:57:02 <linda> wow 41 viewers
16:58:05 <JarnoO> good active bursting there
16:59:24 <JarnoO> this Giantess also appears to have started during less-than-optimal wind conditions. Probably came out of nowhere
16:59:56 <Ben VL> All it needs is a 5min pause in the wind
17:00:02 <KorbenGiantess=> nice steamy bursting
17:00:29 <KorbenGiantess=> Yea, when you were telling about last years start didn't it come out of nowhere the second the wind stopped?
17:00:41 <Ben VL> Pretty much
17:01:05 <Ben VL> No preceeding boils, just straight into thumps
17:01:20 <linda> i think the cam was on it, and it just started overflowing
17:02:21 <Ben VL> When the pool domes up in the video of that one, it had already been ie for like 10 seconds
17:03:22 <KorbenGiantess=> so did you call it on the radio when it started thumping?
17:03:34 <Ben VL> Yes
17:03:53 <KorbenGiantess=> :thumbsup:
17:04:08 <KorbenGiantess=> or should I say "screamed it over the radio"
17:04:24 <KorbenGiantess=> and I thought your Sawmill call was hillarious, I can't imagine what your Giantess call was like
17:04:56 <Ben VL> Louder and less composed
17:05:15 <KorbenGiantess=> lol
17:05:21 <Kat> linda, Last year we had over 100 viewers at several points!
17:05:29 <Eric> steam?
17:05:34 <JarnoO> no steam
17:05:37 <KorbenGiantess=> not yet
17:05:50 <linda> Kat, wow, where are the slackers? lol
17:05:52 <El Popo> close
17:06:02 <AT> let's see, I live 9 hours away, it's been going for an hour now....could I make it in time to see something? But there's no place to stay up there anyway....Darn. Maybe next time.
17:06:08 <Eric> It wants to go into steam!
17:06:29 <Eric> AT, you in Utah?
17:06:39 <Kat> linda, Good question - just getting off work?
17:06:39 <JarnoO> last year's first Giantess' second burst (that's a mouthful) lasted 1h09m. So far this one sits at 1h23m
17:06:39 <AT> CO
17:06:43 <Eric> ahhh :-D
17:07:24 <Kat> I'd be in my car already - even if I had to sleep in it!
17:07:26 <Eric> sleep up at solitary....it's quiet up there :-P
17:07:38 <Kat> LOL
17:07:39 <Eric> woops, I didn't say that
17:07:56 <Eric> That is against park rules and I retract my statement.
17:07:58 <linda> just you and the bears
17:08:11 <Kat> No thanks
17:08:23 <Kitt> especially since there has been a griz u[ there all year
17:08:46 <Eric> Griz will give you something to snuggle with at night Kitt
17:08:49 <JarnoO> going to steam
17:08:59 <Eric> It's trying
17:09:03 <Kitt> u[ = up
17:09:12 <JarnoO> and failed again
17:09:21 <Kitt> Korben's spelling is rubbing off
17:09:28 <KorbenGiantess=> lol
17:09:53 <JarnoO> wouldn't be surprised if this won't go to steam at all but stays in water
17:09:58 <Kitt> there are lots of gazers at Giantess that will actually hear it going to steam phase
17:10:02 <Eric> Flood ie
17:10:29 <Eric> Kind of curious how infant is looking too
17:11:01 <KorbenGiantess=> Giantess is getting weaker but at the same time I think it is getting closer to steam
17:11:06 <Kitt> I don't even see it on the screen Eric
17:11:32 <Kitt> hello Clark
17:11:32 <JarnoO> Mottled Pool will also be interesting - after the first Giantess last year it looked like it got much more steamier than before
17:12:38 <Ben VL> What about the obligotory "PLUME PLS!1"
17:13:01 <KorbenGiantess=> Yes please
17:13:09 <Kitt> pray for Aurum Ben
17:13:35 <linda> michelle if you pull back they can see plume in the corner of boardwalk
17:14:07 <lc> Kitt thanks for the text
17:14:17 <Kitt> you are welcome
17:14:18 <linda> lc, hi
17:14:36 <lc> hi linda
17:15:02 <Brucej> Hi LC
17:15:17 <linda> yhx
17:15:20 <Eric> Kitt, you won't see infant from here. But it turns into a really rich mudpot when giantess is active I believe.
17:15:22 <linda> thx
17:15:36 <Eric> Some great videos of it from last year.
17:15:51 <lc> Hey Bruce, how you doing?
17:15:53 <KorbenGiantess=> I would like to see a ph logger of Infant over the last few days, I wonder what it did before and after the eruption
17:15:57 <JarnoO> you can see Infant from here - it's the pool right in frame in the corner of the boardwalk
17:15:58 <Kitt> actually the water becomes murkier, smells and can slightly overflow
17:16:15 <Kitt> I have seen more than 10 Giantess eruptions
17:16:35 <Ben VL> It was roiling muddy water 1'-2' last time
17:16:43 <Brucej> Not bad. Just retired, but awaiting a reduction in this pandemic before I do much traveling. It’s mentally tough.
17:16:47 <Kitt> correct Ben
17:16:52 <Eric> But I don't think we could see it from here.
17:17:03 <linda> yeah we were able to zoom in on infant, this camera would be even better for that
17:17:08 <Michelle> First day back and I don't want to break the camera. :):)
17:17:12 <Kitt> you can see a nice dark patch and that is it
17:17:35 <Kat> Michelle, That's my job to break the cam LOL
17:17:44 <Kitt> Michelle it is good to be cautious
17:18:51 <Michelle> Using the + and - button instead of the mouse. Don't want anything to go wrong!
17:18:54 <KorbenGiantess=> starting to wonder if we might be seeing a Water Phase eruption?
17:19:05 <linda> i think we looked at it after the initial thrill of giantess was over
17:19:48 <JarnoO> Atka volcanic complex green -> yellow. Also the site of Korovin (and the historically active center), but current activity could be of any of the volcanoes in the complex
17:20:26 <Eric> You are doing great Michelle!
17:21:13 <Michelle> Everyone ok with this view for a few minutes?
17:21:23 <Kitt> sure
17:21:27 <Greg 🤠> Michelle, pretty exciting for the camop right?
17:21:28 <linda> yes
17:21:29 <KorbenGiantess=> I think we want this view until the first burst is over
17:21:38 <KorbenGiantess=> until this burst is over**
17:21:51 <JarnoO> actually, Atka volcanic complex wasn't even assigned a color and alert level, only Korovin
17:22:12 <Michelle> Greg, absolutely awesome!
17:23:53 <Eric> Still no webcams at the north entrance...amazing.
17:24:33 <Greg 🤠> Guess they are waiting for the new building or they forgot to put them in the budget!
17:24:56 <Eric> I think the new building was done over a month ago and the old ones demolished.
17:25:26 <linda> nice spikes
17:25:29 <Eric> I think your second guess is probably close to the real answer.
17:25:56 <Eric> I love that people have their backs turned to giantess and are watching Pump!
17:26:07 <Kat> :D
17:31:38 <KorbenGiantess=> I am starting to doubt that this is going to have a steam phase
17:32:01 <KorbenC> Hi Jeff
17:32:02 <JarnoO> it looked promising for a bit but now it's definitely in water again
17:32:18 <El Popo> Actually seems like it's trying to transition now
17:32:57 <AT> I know it's off topic, but what are the new buildings at North entrance? The kiosk?
17:33:31 <JarnoO> all of them except for the Roosevelt Arch I think?
17:34:37 <Jeff> What was the August date of giantess last year?
17:34:41 <Kitt> There was only one building at the north entrance
17:34:47 <Ben VL> 26
17:35:00 <Jeff> Thank you
17:35:15 <Kitt> and then sep. 10th
17:35:21 <Ben VL> Also, why arent you out there??
17:36:00 <Kitt> the store closes at 6pm
17:36:00 <Ben VL> Jeff, you gotta go get the Vault ini!
17:36:03 <linda> he's still trying to throw people out of the store
17:36:03 <Jeff> Working
17:36:10 <Ben VL> ...right
17:36:32 <Ben VL> You'll get there in time for Vault
17:36:34 <Jeff> I'm about to start physically throwing people out so I can do it
17:36:58 <Kitt> are you released at 6 or do you have things to finish up?
17:37:20 <Jeff> Have to count drawer out
17:37:43 <Kitt> ok, do it well
17:37:46 <El Popo> Round off to the nearest 100
17:38:01 <KorbenC> ask someone else to do it
17:38:02 <Ben VL> Well, congrats in advance!! I hope you get Vault and enjoy it!
17:38:07 <linda> El Popo, :)
17:38:20 <Jeff> Ben VL, i was able to see start
17:38:39 <Ben VL> The GTS start?
17:39:01 <Jeff> Yup
17:39:04 <GoSawmill> You should have time Jeff. Take snacks and jacket in case it gets dark before Vault. Have Fun!
17:39:26 <Ben VL> Sweet dude! Congrats!!!
17:39:37 <Jeff> 3 GTS 1 from start
17:39:40 <KorbenC> So, how long does it have to go before we say it is a water phase?
17:39:47 <Ben VL> I assume there was a call first?
17:40:17 <Jeff> Russ called the large boils then I was able to make it to front door for start
17:40:38 <Kat> Awesome Jeff!
17:40:43 <AT> at the north entrance there was the kiosk and an old outhouse over the side of the hill along the river. Not one you'd want to use, but it had a great view!
17:44:12 <Kitt> that looks like steamphase
17:44:26 <Ben VL> Yeah
17:44:56 <Kitt> but gazers on site will confirm if it is
17:44:57 <JarnoO> finally
17:46:29 <El Popo> My daughter called it right before you typed it
17:46:59 <linda> El Popo, how old your daughter?
17:47:09 <El Popo> 21
17:47:10 <Ben VL> Russ called steam at 1743
17:47:19 <JarnoO> still wet steam though
17:47:30 <JarnoO> 1743 is what I got from the capture
17:47:38 <linda> El Popo, :thumbsup: great that she is watching
17:47:57 <El Popo> I woke her up from a deep sleep last summer morn
17:48:06 <Audrey> Hey all
17:48:07 <linda> :)
17:48:14 <El Popo> Because I had been talking about it a lot
17:48:46 <linda> that's great, I just called my girlfriend earlier and told her to sign on :)
17:49:09 <El Popo> So, what's the Vault schedule? 2 AM or so?
17:49:13 <Kitt> I hope it is a super loud steam phase
17:49:38 <Audrey> Yeah I remember asking “has giantess erupted yet”
17:49:41 <linda> lots of flashlights tonight
17:49:50 <El Popo> Like every day
17:49:55 <Eric> Glad it finally went to steam.
17:50:03 <El Popo> Running joke
17:50:04 <Audrey> Tis true
17:50:11 <john> what an exciting afternoon!
17:50:12 <Kitt> 1811 to 2311
17:50:40 <El Popo> Funny how there's a "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" earlier in today's chat
17:50:42 <linda> Audrey, hi
17:50:46 <Kitt> I personally expect it in the next 2.5 hours
17:50:51 <Eric> That was probably Kevin :-P
17:50:55 <linda> El Popo, that is kevin
17:50:58 <Eric> He falls asleep a lot in here :-P
17:51:06 <Audrey> Hi Linda!
17:51:08 <El Popo> :lol:
17:51:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
17:51:29 <john> LOL!
17:51:29 <Eric> even sleeping through Giantess :-D
17:51:33 <linda> :) can't sleep thru this though
17:51:38 <El Popo> Sleep with one eye open
17:51:42 <Eric> haha, I think he can Linda :-D
17:51:51 <linda> :)
17:51:57 <Audrey> He’s dreaming of giantess
17:52:03 <JarnoO> now's a good time to check upon the rest of the Hill. Perhaps Beehive will make an early appearance
17:52:15 <john> Eric wanted to cut away to Great Fountain!
17:52:15 <Eric> Oh yes please
17:52:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am an old man. We do that a lot.
17:52:30 <Kitt> very short intervals are a very bad sign for Beehive
17:52:34 <Eric> john, You are the only camop who knows how to get it in focus though!
17:52:49 <john> LOL!
17:52:52 <El Popo> Sometimes dreaming of Giantess means something quite important in dream interpretation
17:53:09 <Eric> I never ask anyone else for that view!
17:53:23 <john> :thumbsup:
17:53:33 <Eric> Beautiful!
17:53:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice
17:53:41 <linda> that looks cool from far away
17:53:43 <john> Wow, nice view!
17:53:47 <Eric> I miss sitting on the hill...maybe next week :-D
17:53:55 <linda> looks like a big bee
17:54:00 <Ben VL> Looks like a clear day too
17:54:04 <Eric> I think it's dead
17:54:21 <Audrey> That steam really is tall
17:54:23 <El Popo> Barely a wisp of steam anywhere else.
17:54:35 <Eric> Yes, very quiet looking
17:54:55 <Kitt> Beehive could also choose to have a long interval
17:55:05 <JarnoO> intervals <12h are bad for Beehive is , that is if you don't want a false Indicator series
17:55:20 <Kitt> Ah Giantess is giving some a shower
17:55:20 <JarnoO> that's what I got from the logbooks at least
17:55:21 <Eric> Lion is doing it's typical huffing
17:55:39 <JarnoO> would be interesting what Ear Spring will do
17:55:43 <Eric> Graham might be happy :-P
17:56:03 <El Popo> Beehive activity is affected by Giantess (according to Marler?)
17:56:18 <Kitt> I know
17:56:26 <linda> I think last year we saw less of Bee when giantess erupted
17:56:44 <Kitt> That is why it had a 48 hour interval after Giantess started one year
17:57:03 <El Popo> I think I remember that
17:57:07 <Audrey> I kinda wanna sleep but can’t until stems phase ends
17:57:22 <JarnoO> old guidebooks (around 1900) mention Beehive at 3h intervals during a Giantess eruption but otherwise at occasionally long intervals
17:57:33 <Kitt> hopefully it will switch back to water phase
17:57:38 <linda> Audrey, my girlfriend was wondering how she was going to eat dinner haha
17:58:18 <El Popo> I vaguely recall a pause after steam phase before bursting restarted during the two last year
17:58:29 <Audrey> My dad (el popo) wasn’t sure he would be able to finish cooking
17:58:50 <El Popo> I had to get a better view of the TV from the stove
17:58:59 <linda> Audrey, :) I just take laptop into kitchen, I do the same when I drive the cam
17:59:01 <Eric> haha...nice
17:59:09 <JarnoO> during both steamphases last year it would have water already, but it did pause very obviously after which it restarted with water again
17:59:15 <El Popo> You haven't seen the kitche
17:59:17 <El Popo> kitchen
17:59:23 <Kitt> looks like water is coming back
17:59:44 <JarnoO> I better take a shower before it goes back to water
17:59:59 <Audrey> Lol
18:00:12 <linda> might not be any water left
18:00:35 <Ben VL> Water came back in GTS and had bursting before pausing on Sep 10, IIRC
18:00:49 <Audrey> Just shower in the geyser :lol:
18:01:00 <El Popo> No soap allowed
18:01:13 <El Popo> (though it was tempting for seven years)
18:01:29 <Kitt> and JarnoO is on the other side of the world
18:01:42 <Audrey> The heat probably kills all the germs
18:01:44 <El Popo> Thanks Ben VL
18:02:37 <linda> first time I think I watched this for 8 or 9 hours straight
18:02:40 <El Popo> Imaging having a Giantess geyser shower. Changes from water to steam automatically! You might not have to bathe for a year!
18:03:47 <Kitt> Old Faithful on static
18:04:10 <john> Korben thanks so much for reaching out! Amazing afternoon!
18:04:27 <El Popo> I watched pretty much all day on the first one. Common phrase: "Oh, it's jetting again."
18:04:42 <KorbenC> It has been a good afternoon no doubt!
18:04:44 <john> :thumbsup:
18:04:53 <Kat> :thumbsup:
18:10:20 <El Popo> Since it's impossible to determine what triggers a rare geyser like Giantess to erupt, it's possible harmlessly speculate that a bit of deep shaking from the Philippine earthquake could have encouraged this.
18:10:45 <Kitt> probably not
18:11:36 <El Popo> The only foundational basis for saying that is when water is nearly in a superheated state (as with the classic water in the microwave "trick"), just a small perturbation induces boiling.
18:11:37 <GoSawmill> Need a very close earthquake.
18:12:44 <KorbenC> It could have helped it
18:13:00 <El Popo> I agree on the improbability but something in the subterranean plumbing gets it going.
18:13:07 <Michelle> Does anyone know what the drilling in Hayden is for? The rigs were making a loud thump and a pretty good vibration
18:13:08 <KorbenC> yes
18:13:12 <El Popo> I could also speculate that it did this for my birthday!
18:13:30 <KorbenC> Jimbo, it could have been an earthquake, an exhange of function, or anything
18:13:45 <KorbenC> Hey, maybe we will get some NG's, Giantess might give it a hint
18:14:20 <El Popo> Inquiring minds want to know. And with that being hard to do, then I inquire aimlessly (but with thought involved)
18:14:20 <KorbenC> Maybe all it needed was a very slight change in pressure to cause the boiling
18:14:44 <KorbenC> I think a change in pressure is why Sawmill came back that day.
18:14:50 <El Popo> Weather?
18:15:10 <KorbenC> Yea, a change in pressure can change the boiling point and 'shock' it into eruption
18:15:22 <Kitt> yes, because we didn't have any pressure changes during the 4.5 years
18:16:06 <KorbenC> Well
18:16:10 <KorbenC> We did of course
18:16:28 <El Popo> Just as a hobby gazer with a scientific background, I'm fascinated by what might turn these intermittent players on and off.
18:16:48 <KorbenC> But it was looking good for days before that eruption, it could have really erupted at any point from June 20th on IMHO
18:17:09 <KorbenC> So maybe all it needed was a little pressure to push it over the top.
18:17:14 <El Popo> One of the main things very likely being changes in the system due to mineral deposition.
18:18:04 <El Popo> That is all. Whatever the cause, I'm glad to see it again.
18:18:05 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
18:18:15 <KorbenC> Yea no doubt.
18:21:23 <Ben VL> Well, sawmill had been climbing it's way back to life for over a week
18:21:31 <KorbenC> Yup
18:21:44 <KorbenC> Just throwing the possibility out there, anything is possible
18:21:55 <Ben VL> That eruption was inevetable and I was not surprised to see the aftermath that night when it went
18:22:06 <Eric> Happy Birthday El Popo!
18:22:12 <Ben VL> BUT it is possible
18:22:57 <linda> Happy Birthday!
18:23:21 <KorbenC> Ben, yea, I think once it started overflowing it was ready.
18:23:56 <KorbenC> And then when we had those two thumping and boiling episodes I had no doubt it would erupt in the next few hours
18:24:45 <KorbenC> IDK how it didn't erupt on one of those first two Thumping episodes
18:25:44 <KorbenC> Ben, you were there for both of those episodes right?
18:25:52 <Ben VL> Yeah. Luke and I were thinking either the 2am cycle or the 6am one
18:25:59 <Ben VL> Yes
18:26:22 <KorbenC> I can still hear Luke scraming "The bacteria is coming up, Oh my god" in my head :P
18:26:58 <KorbenC> I do wonder what we were thinking by not going out for the next cycle.
18:27:36 <Ben VL> I went out there and I would have got it had I not overslept
18:27:53 <KorbenC> yea, you missed it by like 15mins right?
18:28:00 <Ben VL> Probably
18:28:05 <KorbenC> That would have been a fun radio call to hear in my sleep.
18:28:45 <Ben VL> All right it's dinnertime. Cya all later
18:28:54 <KorbenC> I am just happy we got it, will never forget it
18:29:03 <KorbenC> Cya dude, have a good one
18:29:33 <KorbenC> But what's for dinner, that determines whether I jump in my car and come break down your door for it, lol
18:29:37 <Eric> going back into water?
18:30:11 <KorbenC> It has been having some bursting from it
18:30:13 <linda> Ben VL, bye
18:37:12 <Eric> steam on BH?
18:39:56 <KorbenC> did BH try to do soemthing while I was away?
18:40:06 <KorbenC> and Giantess is back in water, IDK for how long
18:40:08 <linda> there we go
18:40:30 <JarnoO> Giantess is still in steam
18:40:33 <linda> KorbenC, no eric thought he saw some bee steam
18:40:53 <KorbenC> I thought it was back to water for a little bit there
18:41:01 <linda> looked like water for a second there
18:41:04 <10> it did have some water
18:41:40 <Michelle> It was water
18:42:23 <linda> changed its mind
18:42:29 <KorbenC> Hi kiawe
18:42:55 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha! Giantess doing something?
18:43:06 <linda> kiawe (at work), yes
18:43:07 <KorbenC> Yes
18:43:09 <KorbenC> It is erupting
18:43:13 <kiawe (at work)> Hubba hubba!
18:43:23 <linda> :)
18:43:27 <KorbenC> :)
18:43:35 <kiawe (at work)> I briefly caught a spritz, but didn't want to hope.
18:43:48 <linda> waiting for it to go back to water phase
18:44:32 <KorbenC> I can't wait for MG to post about this
18:44:36 <kiawe (at work)> It looks like it's working itself up to it.
18:46:05 <KorbenC> Jarno, take a look at the bleached runoff, quite nice to see that again
18:46:38 <JarnoO> mhm
18:47:55 <kiawe (at work)> *laughing at SantaFe's name addition*
18:48:35 <kiawe (at work)> Hi Kevin!
18:49:07 <Kevin IPad> Hi
18:50:28 <kiawe (at work)> Lots of spits and sputters.
18:50:43 <KorbenC> I wonder what it will do now
18:50:58 <KorbenC> I hope it pauses completely and then goes into those burst things overnight and tommorow
18:51:07 <kiawe (at work)> Hopefully go 'FWOOOOSH!!!'
18:52:39 <linda> I saw water
18:53:21 <kiawe (at work)> I'd be happy if the burst sessions started now :D
18:53:43 <kiawe (at work)> None of the microbursts have been more than about 15 feet.
18:53:54 <KorbenC> Thats what most of them will be
18:57:59 <linda> kiawe (at work), there are a few videos below of giantess water phase
18:58:30 <kiawe (at work)> I looked at those; thanks!
18:58:40 <linda> kiawe (at work), :thumbsup:
19:03:31 <kiawe (at work)> It tasks us.
19:09:30 <Michelle> Just wondering what the protocol would be for dark? Should I leave it on Giantess for the night?
19:10:04 <linda> hmmm I would, people might go out with flashlights
19:10:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably would be a good idea.
19:10:54 <Michelle> The Hill or just Giantess?
19:11:20 <kiawe (at work)> Some dedicated soul will be there with a flashlight if Giantess goes off at night.
19:11:59 <Kitt> several gazers have already left hill to get flashlights and night gear and returned
19:13:40 <kiawe (at work)> Picnic dinner on the hill, make sure you can run to the bathroom.
19:14:52 <linda> Michelle, I guess you could pull back a little, maybe get beehive in there
19:15:48 <Kitt> The next break for gazers will probably be after Vault
19:17:01 <Ben VL> When their flashlights die
19:17:57 <KorbenC> Lion 1913 ini
19:17:59 <KorbenC> and wb Ben
19:18:23 <Kitt> Those flashlights last a long time, since they won't use them all at the same time
19:20:22 <Ben VL> I was kinda surprised at how quick mine died
19:21:30 <Kitt> mine lasts for an hour and a quarter on high and a lot longer on low and I have another segment
19:23:16 <Ben VL> My one lasted an hour and a half or so and the other was about the same on both pairs of batterys. Part of it was that GTS was so active most of it was spent on high
19:24:12 <Ben VL> Had to leave a little after 2am
19:24:47 <Kitt> what were you the only one with a flashlight?
19:25:00 <10> GTS?
19:25:15 <Ben VL> I was the only one period
19:25:23 <KorbenC> GTS = Giantess
19:26:04 <Ben VL> Had the whole thing all to myself for almost three hours
19:27:14 <Ben VL> But before that I was the only one with a light
19:27:57 <Kitt> Was there a moon?
19:28:32 <Ben VL> Not until I was close to heading in
19:28:45 <Kitt> Tonight would be awesome to watch for meteors in between s;ikes
19:28:52 <Kitt> spikes
19:33:14 <Michelle> OF and Giantess
19:33:39 <linda> :)
19:34:58 <kiawe (at work)> *checks expected max of Perseids* Yep; the next 3 days should be busy.
19:36:27 <kiawe (at work)> Double feature!
19:37:00 <kiawe (at work)> meteor shower over erupting Giantess.
19:39:07 <Kitt> looks like Giantess is getting busy again
19:39:22 <KorbenC> Splish splash :)
19:40:09 <john> Great view... we can see both!
19:40:42 <kiawe (at work)> :thumbsup:
19:40:45 <Ben VL> I definitely thought GTS would be a lot more pixely with this cam
19:40:55 <KorbenC> Keep an eye on BH and Lion too, so a whole hill view preset might be a good idea after this OF is done
19:41:21 <Kitt> Old Faithful
19:41:28 <KorbenC> Same Ben the cam quite literally de-pixelated once Giantess started.
19:41:42 <Ben VL> NICE
19:42:06 <Kitt> maybe they finally got the part the had been back ordered
19:42:08 <Ben VL> Where was the cam pointed?
19:45:04 <KorbenC> Ben, it is a new preset, can fit about 1/2 the hill and OF in the same image
19:45:22 <KorbenC> It is very useful when BH is looking good and OF is due, can fit both of them in the same image
19:45:40 <kiawe (at work)> GTS = Grand Theft Sawmill? :p:lol:
19:46:41 <kiawe (at work)> Have to go work on the books now; we just received a huge shipment to process. Will check in again later tonight. Aloha!
19:47:02 <Michelle> You have to back the cam all the way out to get both. No preset
19:47:46 <KorbenC> Michelle, can you please put the cam on the hill? I think it is the best spot for it right now
19:48:02 <KorbenC> That way we can see BH, Aurum, PLume, Giantess, and everthing else that is on the hill :D
19:49:03 <Michelle> Oh wait, there is a new preset. New one for Sawmill too. Awesome!
19:49:17 <KorbenC> Thanks Michelle
19:50:43 <linda> Michelle, yeah makes getting to sawmill easier, cuts out all the moving cam
19:51:35 <KorbenC> It still makes me smile that the cam needs a Sawmill preset because it is erupting so much
19:52:35 <JarnoO> didn't the tree cam also had a Sawmill preset? Think it was omitted when it was moved as it laid dormant
19:52:43 <JarnoO> have*
19:53:57 <KorbenC> VAULT
19:53:58 <KorbenC> .

19:54:57 <KorbenC> Camop, can we please zoom on Giatness?
19:55:20 <Ben VL (Compute> Sweet!
19:56:19 <KorbenC> nice spikes
19:57:01 <Ben VL (Compute> Surprised it wasn't Russ who put it in
19:57:25 <KorbenC> I am surprised Will isn't in basin right now
19:57:33 <Kitt> this way we all know Will is in
19:57:57 <Kitt> I mean Demitri
19:58:41 <linda> nice
19:59:12 <Ben VL (Compute> oh, Russ has it in 3m later
19:59:38 <10> will is likely in bozeman. he has a M-F job
19:59:42 <KorbenC> I am guessing 1950 is the thumping
19:59:53 <KorbenC> 10, thats a good point:thumbsup:
20:00:08 <Kitt> That is the start of Vault
20:33:20 <linda> I forget the name of the one in back on left
20:33:39 <JarnoO> you mean Teakettle?
20:34:02 <linda> that's the one steaming straight back?
20:34:21 <JarnoO> with that cone yes
20:34:32 <linda> ah, ok, thanks
20:37:28 <Michelle> I will say the cam seems to be working good tonight. It was down half of my last shift before I left.
20:37:48 <linda> It is.
20:38:05 <Michelle> The pic is better too!
20:38:08 <linda> being kind to us
20:38:20 <linda> yeah that comes and goes, don't know why
20:38:24 <Greg> :)
20:39:01 <linda> but generally it has been better
20:41:17 <linda> is plume area steaming? I'm not positive where it is exactly
20:41:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
20:42:44 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, so it is where that dark spot is with the steam?
20:45:53 <JarnoO> think that's steam end
20:47:36 <linda> starting to lose light
20:48:32 <Michelle> Yes we are.
20:49:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Turn on the light switch Michelle. It is nest to the Great Fountain preset.
20:49:43 <john> LOL
20:50:01 <JarnoO> you could open the aperture further
20:50:04 <linda> :)
20:51:08 <linda> hoping for aurum
20:51:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It should be well lit tonight.
20:52:00 <Michelle> Linda, I was thinking that too. With a BH in the foreground! :)
20:52:03 <linda> for sure
20:52:18 <linda> Michelle, that would be nice!
20:55:33 <Greg> Kevin. Did john find the GF preset?
20:57:08 <JarnoO> about time for Vault
20:57:29 <linda> G heard you
20:57:48 <Michelle> Just stare at the screen for a minute and you get your meteor shower at Giantess!:):):)
20:58:09 <linda> the trees are dancing
20:58:30 <Ben VL (Compute> it's part of the Giantess party
20:58:41 <linda> :)
20:59:28 <linda> poor lion is getting no attention today
20:59:48 <JarnoO> Giantess is huffing and puffing but it seems like it's not able to do anything
20:59:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Some one checking Indy
21:00:15 <JarnoO> so far it's a steam-type eruption, but a very weak one
21:00:35 <JarnoO> B3
21:00:38 <JarnoO> mixed-phase
21:00:56 <Michelle> Water
21:01:02 <linda> yea a spike
21:01:24 <linda> the show is starting
21:01:26 <john> :thumbsup:
21:02:19 <JarnoO> it's already looking miles better than the first 2020 eruption when it began its third burst
21:02:55 <linda> flashlights are on
21:04:31 <Ben VL (Compute> was the Sep eruption that much stronger? I thought they were similarish
21:04:39 <linda> amazing how dark OF static looks
21:05:07 <JarnoO> September eruption got going very fast
21:06:43 <JarnoO> this eruption had a very sluggish start, even sluggier than the August last year one. Though currently it's stronger than the August last year eruption but definitely not approaching that of September last year
21:08:53 <JarnoO> the second burst of September last year lasted only 7 minutes (but tall bursting, not that mess and a half this one had) before it went into strong steam. After steam was done it was like a machine gun, with good bursting episodes followed by short pauses (5-10 minutes or so from the overnight captures)
21:11:10 <Ben VL (Compute> it was continuous until after midnight
21:11:28 <JarnoO> alright person there - keep your magnesium with you
21:11:28 <Ben VL (Compute> ~mostly
21:14:29 <JarnoO> Vault
21:14:47 <Michelle> Just wondering where to leave the cam for the night. Would the light be better backed out?
21:15:15 <linda> I think this would be a good spot
21:15:16 <JarnoO> if you could leave the entire Hill in view that would be great
21:15:38 <JarnoO> perhaps we'll see some Ear Spring action
21:15:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I would back it out some. Helps with the light
21:16:06 <linda> Kevin wins!
21:16:53 <linda> I guess if you shift a bit you might get lion
21:17:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I would go Lion to Giantess.
21:18:20 <linda> a little further to left and you'll make it
21:20:02 <linda> Michelle, can you bring lion into view
21:21:01 <Michelle> Had to wait to see on the chat screen, too dark on the control screen.
21:21:05 <Ben VL (Compute> I wAnT tO wAtCh ThReE sIsTeRs
21:21:35 <linda> Michelle, oh wow
21:21:41 <linda> Ben VL (Computer), >(
21:22:09 <linda> Michelle, That's great and great job today too!
21:22:55 <Michelle> Well that's an awful pic, but I will leave it there for the night. Everyone have a great night.
21:23:14 <linda> Michelle, have a good night, thanks for driving
21:23:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hope you had a fun ride.
21:24:08 <linda> well time for bed, been fun
21:24:28 <Michelle> Now where was the person with the flashlight when i was trying to find Lion inmthe dark!:)
21:24:39 <linda> Michelle, lol
21:24:59 <linda> the view here is definitely better
21:25:26 <linda> good night
21:25:48 <Michelle> Good night!
21:32:50 <Greg> Night Michelle
