08:58:45 <Kat> Nope - sorry it's all real LOL
08:59:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I guess that means I have to feed chickens.
09:00:14 <Kat> :)
09:00:25 <Greg (working)> No dream here, time to go to work ugh
09:00:58 <Kat> :(
09:01:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Work?
09:02:25 <Greg (working)> I won't retire until the end of the year. :o(
09:02:59 <Kat> It will be here before you know it!
09:04:46 <Greg (working)> I was going to reitre, just before our trip to YNP, but $$ got in the way
09:05:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have to work 5 more years just to pay for gas for this trip.
09:05:41 <Kat> It always does! When will you be in the park?
09:06:19 <Greg (working)> gas = hahaha right and with our new suv.
09:16:23 <DeletedTeakettl> Popping in to figure out if we're gonna need a sled on the boardwalks on Thursday morning...
09:17:03 <Kat> :)
09:18:14 <Kat> Doesn't look like it
09:18:29 <DeletedTeakettl> lol thanks :)
09:18:45 <Kat> :)
09:18:50 <DeletedTeakettl> aw yeah, we can just stick with the cart
09:20:02 <DeletedTeakettl> and I think we can fit all the stuff into backpacks for Black Sand Pool even if that trail is snowy
09:21:34 <Mike J> Deleted Teakettle. My favorite geyser name.
09:21:34 <DeletedTeakettl> okay, back to manic fieldwork packing xD
09:22:54 <DeletedTeakettl> Deleted Teakettle is an excellent geyser name
09:23:11 <Kat> Mike J, mine too!
09:23:31 <Mike J> My favorite story to tell new visitors/friends I'm touring around.
09:24:12 <Kat> I got a bunch of pics of it last year!

09:49:38 <schnow> cotton candy geyser
10:00:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sounds like Perry Mason music
10:00:57 <Kat> I hear it! Haha
10:01:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Cam still messing up?
10:01:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It says I am not authorized so I guess it is.
10:02:09 <Kat> No - only once but I think they rebooted. CPU's 32 now as opposed to 100%
10:02:27 <Kat> Try again
10:02:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It likes me now
10:03:14 <Kat> :)
10:03:41 <Kat> Watch for Grand - it hasn't gone yet

17:40:03 <Greg 🤠> Right and tryinbg not to doze off, and I am still working lol
17:45:44 <linda> perk up!
17:46:20 <linda> Nothing erupting/
17:46:46 <Greg 🤠> Notta, holding off for Grand
17:47:21 <linda> :(
17:48:18 <linda> daisy at 4h 14m
17:49:01 <Greg 🤠> We had a Daisy at 16:11
17:49:16 <linda> not entered
17:49:31 <linda> ill enter
17:49:44 <Greg 🤠> Guess they were asleep. but it was there
17:50:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
17:50:14 <Greg 🤠> OF was at 16:27:25
17:50:37 <linda> OF entered
17:50:43 <linda> Greg 🤠, You don't enter?
17:51:10 <Greg 🤠> I would be happy to, but would need assistance on how to
17:51:40 <linda> I could help you , I thought we set you up for it
17:51:42 <Greg 🤠> Never got the to that pay grade
17:51:58 <linda> First you have to set up account on GT
17:52:20 <Greg 🤠> OK, I am off work in 10 mins, then I will check that
17:52:35 <linda> ok
18:07:58 <Greg 🤠> OF time
18:09:29 <Greg 🤠> Let's see if I do this correctly.
18:10:49 <Greg 🤠> Would you call that short?
18:13:38 <Greg 🤠> YO teacher, can you check my work please LOL
18:15:12 <MM> ini
18:19:47 <BenVL> Greg 🤠, might want to remove the 'ini' from the OF post. All else is good :)
18:20:00 <linda> im back
18:21:09 <linda> Ok, so I guess you got into GT
18:21:15 <Greg 🤠> Updated, thanks BenVL
18:21:38 <BenVL> Np
18:21:39 <linda> Lion gets an ini if the eruption is 6-7 minutes
18:22:05 <linda> OF gets a long if its 3 minutes or more, or else its a short
18:22:51 <linda> Eruptions we can't really see the start get either ns which is within the last minute or ie for in eruption
18:22:59 <Greg 🤠> I thought IM stood for initial
18:23:10 <Greg 🤠> ini
18:24:08 <linda> I think that is what I typed, but it really just pertains to lion in a series. so the first one in a series is an 'ini' and should last 6-7 minutes
18:24:28 <Greg 🤠> Gotcha, thanks
18:24:58 <BenVL> It does, it's just refers to a geyser that erupts in series, like dome or lion. Initial is the first eruption in series
18:25:20 <Greg 🤠> TIL
18:27:24 <linda> If grand has a 2nd or more burst, you can put it under burst. So at around 8-10 minutes sometimes it has a 2nd burst and sometimes more.
18:28:31 <linda> Sometimes lion does a minor, like a minute or less
18:31:35 <linda> I've been sitting here wondering why i'm in a loop between OF and down basin. hahah! Had to refresh.
18:32:03 <Greg 🤠> haha you missed - nothing...
18:32:18 <linda> Greg 🤠, It's been doing for like an hour I think lol
18:33:00 <Greg 🤠> Did you doze off, that could be the theme today
18:33:25 <linda> I wasn't really looking at screen just typing
18:34:13 <linda> Greg 🤠, Oh I was going to mention you can put the GT app on your phone. I find it much easier to enter into app especially if on the chat board
18:34:41 <Greg 🤠> OK, downloaded it as well
18:35:03 <linda> Daisy might be possible
18:35:27 <BenVL> Really hope we have missed it but it has been very rude today
18:35:52 <linda> last interval was 2hr 38, we are at 1h 23m
18:36:00 <linda> oops 2hrs 23
18:36:14 <linda> steamy
18:36:40 <linda> go daisy
18:37:04 <linda> one never knows
18:39:06 <linda> Greg 🤠, :thumbsup:
18:39:32 <linda> Greg 🤠, now you can flag everybody. just kidding
18:40:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy seems to be around 2:30 intervals today.
18:40:21 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, good to know
18:40:30 <Greg 🤠> Linda, haha
18:40:42 <linda> Greg 🤠, :)
18:40:55 <linda> Greg 🤠, flag korben lol
18:41:31 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
18:41:40 <linda> yay a geyser
18:43:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
18:46:16 <Greg 🤠> Linda, There ya go, taking away my fun. haha
18:46:37 <linda> Greg 🤠, :)
18:46:41 <linda> You can enter too
18:47:05 <Greg 🤠> So how did you get to the end time?
18:47:22 <Greg 🤠> I was going to list 18:45:36
18:47:50 <Greg 🤠> Or 4:05
18:47:51 <BenVL> Quick think
18:47:58 <BenVL> Thing*...
18:48:19 <linda> oh I never enter end times
18:48:27 <Greg 🤠> got it
18:49:13 <Greg 🤠> Duration?
18:49:49 <linda> I would imagine that is where you would put it
18:50:15 <linda> But from webcam you really can't see when it ends
18:50:24 <linda> We can just about see when it really starts
18:50:37 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
18:50:41 <linda> except for maybe Old faithful
18:50:59 <BenVL> Putting the seconds down in the comments is fine, but seconds on the start for webcam observations should be avoided. Duration to the second is only sort of accurate if you can see the base.
18:51:27 <linda> Had a conversation with Graham about that the other day. That the WC is limited as to start times, he actually preferred ie for a lot of them
18:51:40 <Greg 🤠> Back to flagging a certain person with the first name starts with K, hahaha
18:51:57 <linda> :)
18:52:26 <Greg 🤠> Got it thanks Ben and Linda
18:52:31 <linda> geysers like oblong you really don't know when it started
18:52:59 <linda> Even grand because it's behind the trees
18:53:53 <BenVL> Oblong and Artie are always IE but it may be nice to say "saw plume start at X" in the comments. Giantess is always NS (even in basin if you can't feel or hear the first thump)
18:54:23 <linda> BenVL, :thumbsup:
18:54:31 <linda> Riverside also I would put ie
18:55:46 <BenVL> Good point
18:57:36 <linda> bee woke up
18:59:20 <linda> Greg 🤠, also, not sure you know this but...if you type /gt geysername # It will tell you the last 3 eruptions for a geyser. so in daisy's case it has a tendency to stick to a pattern for a while, so you can predict more accurately when it will erupt
19:00:01 <linda> it will show 3 eruptions if you type a 3 where # sign is, or whatever you want
19:00:05 <Greg 🤠> You guys are full of kool stuff today, I did not know that
19:00:25 <linda> So that is how I knew daisy might erupt
19:00:44 <Greg 🤠> My note pad is getting used OT today
19:00:52 <linda> :)
19:01:03 <linda> I think that is the most useful comman
19:01:09 <linda> *command
19:01:25 <linda> It's helpful with grand also
19:01:45 <BenVL> The 2h 30m daisy routine is a lot longer than the recent average lately. Usually has been about 2h give or take. Sometimes less
19:01:47 <Greg 🤠> Type that here or in GT?
19:02:01 <linda> right here
19:03:02 <linda> There is a way to type it so everyone can see it. I just tried can you see it?
19:03:33 <Greg 🤠> no, just what I typed
19:03:56 <linda> ok that's good
19:04:20 <Greg 🤠> Poor Aurum, 133 days :o(
19:04:31 <linda> it can be looked up on GT but this is easier
19:04:39 <linda> RIP
19:04:47 <Greg 🤠> SO just the typer caxn see it
19:05:44 <linda> You should be able to see that
19:05:49 <BenVL> Now I saw that
19:05:52 <Greg 🤠> Yes
19:05:55 <linda> I typed /gts daisy 3
19:07:27 <linda> down below under chat command help, look at commands available for everyone

19:11:38 <BenVL> Late 1800s to 1951
19:11:56 <linda> could be turban?
19:12:54 <Greg 🤠> BRB
19:14:02 <linda> splendid would be fun to see. I never really expected Giantess until it just showed up on my shift lol
19:14:43 <BenVL> THAT was a nice surprise
19:14:51 <linda> It was!
19:15:13 <linda> Everyone always talked about it, but never thought I'd see it
19:16:00 <linda> maybe artie starting
19:16:36 <BenVL> That was the longest closed interval, though
19:17:12 <Greg 🤠> back
19:19:45 <linda> nice to see some new crisp snow
19:20:30 <Greg 🤠> Did YNP get the high winds like Jackson did on Monday?
19:21:02 <linda> It was pretty windy last night, kept Grand down
19:21:59 <Greg 🤠> Near 90mph and the drive in screen in Driggs was blown over
19:22:18 <linda> wow
19:25:07 <linda> id say that is turban
19:26:21 <linda> last night with the snow and wind, grand was low, I almost didn't see it

20:52:04 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
20:53:05 <BenVL> At least it was less than pace during the day today
20:53:45 <Greg 🤠> Frank, will this work for you?
