02:35:36 <Tsunami> yawn, guess everyone in bed.
05:16:51 <Tsunami> need to hop back in bed soon but hi all
05:17:25 <Betty> hi Tsunami, no Steamboat yet?
05:17:58 <Tsunami> nope
05:18:07 <Tsunami> I didn't see one while I was there
05:18:30 <Tsunami> I decided to leave when fog descended across the entire basin making seeing the geyser impossible
05:18:47 <Betty> when will you be back?
05:19:15 <Tsunami> I plan to be back in Norris around 10:30
05:20:28 <Tsunami> I did see a minor eruption, only last 20-30 seconds
05:21:06 <Tsunami> The water from NV went higher than 30-50 feet. I'd estimate the surges were 70 to 100 feet
05:21:11 <Tsunami> in height
05:22:53 <Tsunami> but in the midle of the night it was impossible to tell
05:25:11 <Tsunami> who else is here to see steamboat?
05:29:58 <Tsunami> oh the drive back to west yellowstone in pea soup was annoying
05:37:51 <Betty> sorry, door bell. I bet the drive was no fun
05:38:25 <Tsunami> nope it wasnt
05:38:45 <Tsunami> still Steamboat gave some good oh my gosh moments it's going to happen
05:39:51 <Betty> hope it goes for you today. It really is an impressive eperience
05:40:24 <Tsunami> *smiles* I've got the hotel room tonight too. So if it erupts today that means I get to do other things tomorrow :3
05:40:47 <Tsunami> I'm on the verge of seeing if I can get a third night to be honest
05:40:56 <Betty> yeah, maybe F&M :-)
05:42:22 <Tsunami> heheh
05:42:45 <Tsunami> So who else is in the area?
05:56:34 <Betty> no idea, guess Carol and Beverly are still there
06:02:50 <Betty> Bill that is :-)
06:03:10 <KorbenC> Betty, hi
06:03:41 <Betty> morning Korben
06:03:49 <KorbenC> I see boat note :(
06:04:04 <KorbenC> if only geysers would listen to me for once and take a nice long nap
06:04:35 <Betty> why do you hope for a long interval?
06:04:53 <KorbenC> Thats too long of an answer for the chat room :p
06:05:26 <KorbenC> Boat go to dead Korben get happy.
06:06:28 <Tsunami> why
06:06:39 <Tsunami> I have never seen steamboat
06:07:05 <KorbenC> Lets say Giantess would start erupting every 10 days, how long until we stopped caring about it? The more a super rare geyser erupts the less unique it gets.
06:07:34 <KorbenC> When Sawmill came back we were crying on the bw because it hadn't happened in forever, but hwne it erupts now we just shrug it off.
06:08:34 <Tsunami> i don't think people will stop caring about steamboat
06:08:43 <Betty> Korben thinks Steamboat will become an ordinary geyser if it starts to erupt frequently. He has seen Steamboat several times, so it is not on his buccket list anymore
06:08:51 <KorbenC> They already have, lol
06:08:58 <KorbenC> Betty, thats half of it.
06:09:25 <Betty> you love BH, and try to ccach every eruption of it
06:09:30 <KorbenC> The other half is that it has caused some major problems for alot of people (mental breakdowns, physical harm, people completely leaving the community).
06:09:44 <Tsunami> o.o? what
06:09:55 <KorbenC> Betty, until there was something rarer, like when Sawmill started coming back I wouldn't even leave the bw
06:10:07 <Betty> I dont think that is Steamboats fault
06:10:37 <Tsunami> I am/was Barrett Southworth In the next year or two I will legally be Tsunami.
06:10:42 <KorbenC> Betty, true true true (most ofthe time) but if it was dead those things probably wouldn't have happened.
06:11:10 <KorbenC> Tsunami, :D Odly enough, I really like that idea.
06:11:39 <Tsunami> The thing that I saw wasn't believed x.x so it's data was struck from geyser times because a couple of people said I couldn't have seen that.
06:12:14 <Betty> I guess the problems will shift to something different
06:12:33 <Tsunami> I perched and observed East Sentinel for days. I got rewarded one time with an eruption at 2 to 3 am. Duration was 10+ minutes with a full directly behind the vent shooting into the river
06:12:54 <Betty> don´t treat the symptoms, but the roots
06:13:42 <KorbenC> Betty, but the whole boat thing is just my opinion. I have seen it multiple times, with restarts and blah blah blah. So I will probably never sit at boat again.
06:14:01 <Tsunami> there's still plenty to see
06:14:16 <Tsunami> Have you seen East Sentinel yet?
06:14:18 <Betty> thats it, Tsunami
06:14:19 <KorbenC> Yup, I will choose BH over Boat without a second of hesitation
06:14:26 <KorbenC> Tsunami, only minors.
06:14:27 <Betty> I have not
06:15:06 <linda> morning
06:15:17 <Tsunami> morning
06:15:18 <Betty> morning Linda
06:15:22 <KorbenC> j luIMF
06:15:30 <KorbenC> ju Linfa
06:15:34 <KorbenC> ju Linda
06:15:36 <linda> KorbenC, :)
06:15:44 <KorbenC> ju Linda
06:15:51 <linda> hi
06:15:55 <KorbenC> h i L i n d a
06:15:56 <Tsunami> I pray that Steamboat stays active for another year or two. I really really want to see it 4 to 6 times
06:15:59 <linda> lol
06:16:16 <KorbenC> Tsunami, well it just wont die.
06:16:21 <Betty> I hope you will :-)
06:16:24 <KorbenC> So I suspect that may be possible.
06:16:56 <KorbenC> Tsunami, just hope for no D's and I think it will just keep going.
06:17:45 <Tsunami> lets see, I want to see Morning, Churn, Penta again, F&M, would love to see Giant and Giantess. Another East Sentinel would be wonderful
06:18:07 <Tsunami> Oh and ledge
06:18:19 <KorbenC> Ledge from the start is just "wow"
06:18:48 <KorbenC> and it gives you a free shower
06:19:50 <Tsunami> so does penta
06:19:58 <KorbenC> Thats very true
06:20:07 <KorbenC> We were so happy to get it back :)
06:21:01 <Tsunami> I wish other people had been there for my East Sentinel major. Imagine this, single vent eruption into the river with the moon positioned just right for backlight to give the view of a floating blue ball for 12 to 20 minutes
06:21:08 <KorbenC> I think there has only been 1 full eruption since FOrest and I dragged it back to life, probably b/c Sawmill keeps sawing (long live Sawmill!!!)
06:21:32 <KorbenC> Tsunami, Graham has a good video of his east sentinel major somewhere
06:22:10 <Tsunami> I'd have video of mine if it was in the day but I wouldn't trade what I experienced for anything
06:22:24 <KorbenC> Absolutley not
06:22:27 <Tsunami> It was the most unique geyser experience I've had
06:22:37 <KorbenC> I do have to go though, I gotta get to school
06:22:56 <Betty> have fun
06:39:11 <Kat> bbs
06:39:50 <Betty> hi Kat
06:43:55 <Tsunami> anyone here able to add a person to the Geyser Discussion Board on facebook?
06:44:27 <Betty> not me
06:45:03 <Betty> what is facebook? ;-) lol
06:48:58 <Tsunami> now what I don't get is why is the river drowning east sentinel right now
06:50:54 <Tsunami> hi
06:51:19 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
06:51:24 <Dave from B™> or afternoon:)
06:51:30 <Tsunami> heh
06:51:51 <Betty> afternoon Dave from B™, :-)
06:52:01 <Tsunami> so i went out at night to see steamboat for a while
06:52:01 <Tsunami> ?
06:52:22 <Betty> afternoon on my side, Tsunami
06:52:58 <linda> Kat sent pm
06:53:14 <Tsunami> did see a minor eruption.
06:59:41 <Dave from B™> Why did you leave Steamboat?
06:59:47 <Betty> Graham is still in Iceland
07:00:03 <linda> Betty, I think leaving today
07:00:19 <Betty> ah, th Linda
07:00:44 <linda> :thumbsup:
07:00:46 <Dave from B™> I see...the fog got you
07:00:48 <Betty> thx
07:05:11 <Tsunami> yeah fog. I could no longer see Steamboat at all. The drive to west yellowstone was pea soup
07:06:14 <Tsunami> with the fog so heavy that it was impossible to even see steam from steamboat I felt it was time to go
07:08:18 <Betty> at least you got some hours of sleep
07:09:28 <Dave from B™> When will you return to SB?
07:10:44 <Dave from B™> This is the last SB eruption before roads close
07:12:57 <Tsunami> I'm aware. I took a sleeping pill at 2:30 the soonest I will be safe to drive is 9:30. It's a 45 minute drive so I'd say 10:30 to 11:00
07:13:55 <Betty> :thumbsup:
07:22:40 <Kat> back - morning all
07:22:47 <Tsunami> hi
07:23:27 <Kat> OF
07:33:24 <Kat> Tsunami, sounds like you had a good night!
07:34:49 <Tsunamiphone> Yeah
08:06:23 <Tsunami> hi Kevin
08:10:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
08:11:02 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵
08:15:15 <Kat> Hi Betty, Kevin
08:15:39 <Betty> hi Kat
08:25:09 <Tsunami> should be an interesting day to sit and watch steamboat
08:25:37 <Kat> Wish I could do that!
08:26:20 <Tsunami> still waiting an hour to leave
08:28:22 <Dave from B™> We'll let you know when the seismo gets wide:)
08:31:47 <Tsunami> what the, suddenly the daily steamboat temperature logger is NO DATA
08:34:45 <Dave from B™> Based on graphs, it does seem Wed or Thurs is most likely. What did you do to the logger Tsunami?:D
08:38:11 <Tsunami> yes if you look at the amount of pre-play steamboat gives then yes Tomorrow or Thursday are most likely
08:38:51 <Tsunami> but it's unpreditactable so today is quite possible too. Though I'm here today and tomorrow
08:41:06 <Dave from B™> Yes, it could happen today
08:45:00 <Kat> Marmots Tail
08:45:23 <Tsunami> daily temp logger came back for steamboat. Shows a 50C water temp at 5am
08:45:24 <Dave from B™> That is a LONG marmot
08:45:32 <Kat> Hahaha
08:48:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Kehnsteinhaus got a dusting today Betty.
08:49:22 <Betty> I just looked at Ischgl ski area, they got a good amount of snow already :-)
08:50:01 <Betty> 3 weekks till season starts
08:50:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Getting the skis waxed up?
08:50:11 <Betty> yup
08:50:22 <Kat> :thumbsup:
08:50:57 <Dave from B™> It shows up on Daily graph but not weekly one (the 50 degree spike)
08:56:55 <Tsunami> hi greg
08:57:11 <Greg (working)> Good morning
08:57:48 <Betty> morning Greg (working)
09:01:24 <Kat> Morning Greg
09:02:14 <Greg (working)> Morning Betty and Kat
09:06:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks post eruptive.
09:06:13 <Kat> Depression
09:06:25 <Betty> yay
09:30:29 <Greg (working)> Weeeeee
09:31:30 <Kat> yep- went for a ride LOL but I think it was me that time:)
09:33:24 <Betty> daisy just went
09:34:11 <Kat> Thx - can't see that!
09:34:11 <Tsunami> go daisy
09:34:21 <Kat> :thumbsup:

09:35:22 <Betty> go steamboat!!
09:36:02 <Kat> Tsunami, Yay! Wishing you a Steamboat!
09:37:53 <Tsunami> think Carol is still in the area?
09:38:16 <Betty> guess so
09:39:04 <Tsunami> well it's time. need to buy a pass today, got in for free last night but no current pass ^^;
09:40:58 <Mike J> One of the great joys of old age. A lifetime pass.
09:42:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They way things are going an annual pass for me may be a lifetime pass.
09:43:39 <Kat> I was so happy when I got my lifetime pass!
09:43:55 <Mike J> I don't use emojis or abbreviations, but, Kevin, that one actually made me LOL
09:44:06 <Betty> ughh, Kevin
09:44:31 <Katie 🌧️> Morning, all
09:44:39 <Betty> hi Katie
09:44:42 <Kat> Morning katie
09:44:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
10:00:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well there is that Perry Mason music.
10:01:09 <Kat> Have a good drive Kevin
10:01:26 <Dave from B™> Why do most cam ops names begin with "K"?
10:01:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hopefully I won't need snow tires.
10:02:09 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, :lol:
10:02:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It costs less Dave. Not used as much.
10:04:01 <Dave from B™> Less than an hour away from our next interview no show
10:05:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hard to get employees when they get paid more not to work.
10:05:50 <Dave from B™> I think a lot of older people retired early as well.
10:31:33 <Betty> awww, missed Lion
10:32:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Of course. It is the OF window.
10:40:55 <Betty> now I missed it
10:45:15 <Dave from B™> Do the Norris loggers still only update once a day?
11:41:23 <Betty> looks like Grand ie
11:42:37 <Dave from B™> yep
11:42:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Didn't see it start. Was looking at Daisy area on mini cam control.
11:43:18 <Betty> just came back from potty break
11:43:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hard to see it even on the bigger picture.
11:47:07 <Betty> aisy
11:47:19 <Betty> d-aisy
11:49:17 <Betty> is that a 2nd plume right of Grand?
11:50:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like it
11:50:35 <Betty> F&M?
13:03:19 <Betty> Lion
13:28:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> trade you some tater tots for a pretzel Betty.
13:29:12 <Betty> :-)
13:33:32 <Dave from B™> Lunch is over, Kevin
13:36:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just starting here
13:36:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did the interview show up?
13:41:44 <Dave from B™> nope. but the 1 pm did. But, we are going to ask the person who came in yesterday if she will accept the position.
13:42:12 <Dave from B™> Training is so time consuming
13:43:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes it is and not really productive
13:45:23 <Betty> OF
14:43:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BH looking happy
15:07:30 <Dave from B™> Turn it on!
15:08:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wait about 20m
15:13:53 <Dave from B™> I've been at work since 5; time to get out of here. Enjoy BH everyone!
15:14:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Knight
15:16:29 <Betty> bye Dave
15:21:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good contrast
15:22:29 <Greg (working)> :thumbsup:
15:24:31 <Kitt> Love the moody sky on static
15:24:59 <Kitt> no bsb's yet?
15:25:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> no
15:25:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice splashes
15:30:20 <Kitt> hopefully Beehive erupts during the day
15:33:50 <KorbenC> BH looks somewhat ready, afternoon all
15:34:26 <KorbenC> FNWB, NWB, ESE. And for the rest of you: Nice forced steam out of BSB
15:35:18 <KorbenC> Kitt, any plans for a last minute trip into the park before season is done with?
16:00:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Time for the next driver. Controls released.

16:03:12 <KorbenC> yea, I expect BH to probably jsut erupt without warning
16:03:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Go Bee, maybe a Lion too? fingers crossed
16:04:08 <KorbenC> I dont think Lion before dark
16:04:26 <Greg 🤠 on ca> before dark is ok was well
16:04:38 <KorbenC> I would be very surprised if Lion went before dark, and surprised if BH didn't go soon
16:06:57 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
16:17:50 <Betty> headed out, night all

16:40:14 <Kitt> close to 2000?
16:40:21 <Kitt> nice boom start
16:40:41 <KorbenC> Kitt, as far as I have been counting yet

16:41:00 <linda> steamy bee
16:41:06 <KorbenC> stuff Kitt, stuff
16:41:18 <KorbenC> sorry, I am a bit distracted
16:41:30 <SantaFe108> fantastic V shape
16:41:43 <88> so just normal for Korben
16:41:46 <Kitt> 2000 letters, geysers,
16:41:58 <KorbenC> 88, yup. Calculus is time consuming
16:42:08 <KorbenC> Kitt, 2000 units? :P
16:42:29 <SantaFe108> 2000 weird acronyms,
16:42:55 <88> YES!! Good one Santa Fe
16:45:29 <KorbenC> but if anyone here is good at optimization I am all ears :D
16:46:02 <KorbenC> Specifically Optimation with differentiation and without integration.
16:46:48 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Just in time for of window
16:50:24 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OF
16:51:05 <88> poof
16:51:26 <88> last Tuesday with visitors for a bit
16:52:03 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Sad, but that is ok, the park needs to rest as does the employees
16:53:17 <SantaFe108> KorbenC, GHG-18 play for about 8 seconds at 16:40:23
16:53:33 <KorbenC> cool!
16:53:36 <KorbenC> anything from CM?
16:53:38 <KorbenC> MC*
16:54:37 <SantaFe108> MC wasn't in frame yet but it did start 1643 mins later
16:55:45 <SantaFe108> why does GHG-18 have to do minor-y stuff right before OF window :P
16:55:48 <SantaFe108> this is the 3rd time
16:57:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :castle:
17:00:01 <SantaFe108> :D
17:06:04 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Besides maybe Lion, what else might happen on the hill?
17:07:45 <SantaFe108> Depression is at 8h
17:08:05 <SantaFe108> so that might be a possibility
17:08:53 <SantaFe108> and the usual MC and MT's
17:09:22 <Greg 🤠 on ca> I can pan or watch Castle
17:36:33 <linda> well got my geyser alert for indy
17:36:45 <linda> better late than never. NOT
17:37:33 <Greg 🤠 on ca> That is why I changed to email notify
