07:11:26 <LindaG> A bit of steam this morning
07:22:04 <LindaG> Daisy
07:22:15 <LindaG> I think
07:26:15 <LindaG> Hmm I'll enter with question mark
07:27:43 <bn> that is castle steam rather than daisy
07:28:50 <LindaG> bn, you think? It seemed to be separate but hard to tell
07:30:34 <LindaG> Ok I watched again I think you are correct I'll delete
07:31:12 <LindaG> All this steam will drive you crazy after a while :)
07:32:37 <bn> I'm already crazy, so no problem here.
07:32:59 <LindaG> :lol:
07:33:16 <LindaG> Daisy may be soon though
07:33:48 <LindaG> all it has been all winter is steam and snow
07:35:26 <bn> yes daisy within 30 min or so, until yesterday we saw nothing but white since early november
07:36:21 <LindaG> It's been terrible, I'm ready for Spring just so I can see the geysers
07:37:35 <LindaG> I think this may be daisy
07:39:29 <LindaG> Hmm not.convinced
07:40:04 <bn> we were stranded for a few weeks this winter, too much snow on our road and too old to move it, reminiscent of many years ago, but we are always prepared
07:41:06 <LindaG> I'm in New Jersey and we have gotten no snow this winter it's all out west
07:43:52 <LindaG> Hmmm at 7:37 on video looks like possible daisy
07:45:40 <LindaG> but I guess it should be higher
07:46:35 <LindaG> bn, few weeks is a long time but as long as younare.prepared thats good.
07:50:38 <LindaG> Here comes the sun!
07:52:16 <bn> Daisy 0648 Gosa overnight
07:52:23 <LindaG> That might be riverside
07:53:03 <LindaG> bn, :thumbsup:
07:53:25 <LindaG> lol so I'm imagining all of this
07:55:58 <LindaG> not sure.if OF was long or short probably long but this is beautiful
07:57:07 <LindaG> Would make a lovely eruption
07:58:18 <bn> you could paint that view...if you were an artist :)
07:58:47 <LindaG> For sure :)
08:02:54 <LindaG> We will lose the basin very soon I think
08:04:14 <LindaG> split cone
08:04:25 <bn> what is their problem with the static camera
08:05:21 <LindaG> bn, im.not sure they tried to fix and supposedly worse than they thought plus it's winter so hard to it
08:07:45 <LindaG> We've been lucky with this cam all.winter (knock on wood)
08:10:43 <bn> Brent and other person had a good handle on this cam, but I think the static cam and the web interface is another department
08:11:12 <LindaGp> I think so too
08:11:43 <bn> riuverside
08:11:45 <LindaGp> winter is tough I guess they have to come from mammoth
08:11:47 <bn> ,
08:13:02 <bn> can't tell if it is but may be
08:13:51 <LindaGp> I know when you can't see trees it gets tough
08:13:57 <bn> ah too far left maybe Grand
08:14:36 <bn> or grotto, or...
08:14:48 <LindaGp> I would think grand would be huge
08:15:13 <LindaGp> Sprinkler is huge on a day like this lol
08:16:44 <bn> I know one thing for sure...that is steam
08:16:56 <LindaGp> >(
08:17:42 <LindaGp> and Sawmill can be deceiving too
08:17:56 <bn> yes
08:18:40 <LindaGp> OF. Time
08:20:21 <LindaGp> OF
08:20:35 <LindaGp> that was quick
08:21:05 <LindaGp> too big for the screen
08:26:30 <LindaGp> Bee splash
08:26:44 <LindaGp> Bsb too
08:27:24 <LindaGp> wow maybe a short interval
08:31:42 <LindaGp> Lc ie
08:32:03 <LindaGp> nope
08:34:40 <LindaGp> Bsb stopped
08:42:05 <LindaGp> Bsb
08:42:14 <LindaGp> wow big
08:44:08 <LindaGp> Bsb stopped
08:49:06 <LindaGp> Bsb
08:50:50 <LindaGp> 7 min bsb
08:50:59 <LindaGp> Interval
08:51:39 <LindaGp> bsb stopped
08:52:08 <TomK> Good morning all
08:52:46 <LindaGp> good morning
08:53:38 <LindaGp>
08:55:48 <LindaGp> hi tom.. things are becoming visible. Bee seems happy. 7 min interval on bsb. Bee has been unpredictable lately so might want to keep an eye on her. Daisy is having a bit linger intervals.
08:57:19 <TomK> Thanks for the info. last 2 Saturdays Bee went off 1/2 hour after I logged out. :(
08:58:03 <LindaGp> These bsbs are hard to judge but usually if rhey happen every 5 minutes bee is imminent
08:58:19 <LindaGp> But such a steamy day
08:59:22 <TomK> OK, I can take the cam
08:59:47 <LindaGp> Controls released
08:59:55 <TomK> Switch back & forth between Daisy & bee.
09:00:25 <linda> :thumbsup:
09:00:27 <TomK> Thanks for driving
09:00:42 <LindaGp> linda, yw, thanks for taking it. Enjoy
09:01:46 <linda> bsb
09:02:48 <TomK> A little wind would help see past Castle.
09:10:40 <TomK> My what good eyes you have! I didn't see Daisy.
09:20:25 <TomK> Grand window, I'll keep checking on bee.
09:34:01 <bn> TomK, Daisy was visible just as as you came down basin from Bee, then you zoomed in (stupid small control screen) and Daisy was no longer in wiew, they really need to give the camops a bigger control screen
09:39:53 <TomK> Thanks, bn. You're right about the cam window.
09:39:56 <bn> Grand
09:49:02 <Kat> Wow!
09:50:00 <TomK> Sorry, folks. OF window.
10:06:25 <TomK> OF 0905

10:23:15 <Kat> Riverside

10:23:32 <TomK> Riverside?
10:23:39 <linda> nice
10:23:56 <TomK> There's an echo in here!
10:24:05 <Kat> :thumbsup: LOL
10:24:44 <Mike J> Maybe rsideRiverside is the right side of Riverside.
10:24:56 <Mike J> Seems a bit specific to me, but, oh well.
10:26:12 <bn> yep keyboare or person behind screwup
10:37:43 <TomK> Lion

11:23:09 <Kat> Nope
11:31:52 <TomK> Sorry, Daisy. Old faithful window
11:42:15 <TomK> Probably missed daisy
12:41:16 <TomK> Message from OFVEC: Bison carcass in the middle of Geyser Hill. "Keep an eye out for scavengers" Public likes to see critters on the cam.
12:45:59 <no> I thought that was more then a lump.
12:46:30 <no> Madison is sold out in May again. No park visit this year.
12:47:32 <no> There was a small black spot next to the lump, it is gone now.
12:47:57 <Michelle> Good afternoon
12:49:47 <TomK> Hi Michelle
12:50:15 <Michelle> TomK, Hi
12:52:32 <Michelle> So the bison didn't get up and wander off in the night?:lol:
12:53:02 <no> No zombie bison
12:54:33 <no> Little black sots are moving. there was one below the lump about half way tot he boardwalk, that is now gone.
12:55:49 <Michelle> Going to take a few days for it to get ripe!:)
12:58:42 <Michelle> Tom, whenever you have had enough I am ready
12:58:43 <no> Laying up there on the hot ground isn't called Sous Vide Bee?
12:59:25 <TomK> Slow cooking on the sinter?
12:59:37 <Michelle> :):)
12:59:52 <TomK> OK, Michelle
13:00:24 <TomK> Controls released

15:14:11 <Kat> aahh - surpriisng nothing else has found it yet
15:14:32 <Kat> Betty, I didn't see it. Do you know which capture it was?
15:14:55 <Michelle> Maybe a bear will roll him over to Bee
15:15:05 <Michelle> Bees and Bears!!:lol:
15:15:10 <Betty> It is gone on the list below
15:15:38 <Kat> Betty, ok thanks
15:15:43 <Betty> we saw it yesterday afternoon for sure
15:16:43 <Betty> then I watched one of your captures from the morning and it was there as well, only very hard to see in the morning steam
15:17:59 <Michelle> Sawmill back on
15:21:47 <Kat> Sorry I missed it - might have been multi-tasking LOL
15:22:42 <Kat> Michelle, Going to grab some dinner now and then will take the cam for Linda - bee back soon!
15:22:51 <Michelle> There was a really sickly bison by Lion Thursday night, wasn't moving around very much. Possibly the same one.
15:23:02 <Michelle> Kat, :thumbsup:
15:23:35 <Kat> Michelle, I did see that one - you're right most likley the same
15:24:49 <Michelle> Bison have had enough of winter, cold and snow. They are not doing it any more!:)

15:57:56 <Betty> thx for driving, Michelle
15:58:07 <Michelle> Either a Turban or missed Grand
15:58:13 <Betty> grand
15:59:10 <Kat> Michelle, ythx for driving
15:59:26 <Michelle> Kat, you ready
15:59:45 <Kat> Sure - signing in
15:59:54 <Michelle> controls released
16:00:07 <Kat> OK -got it! Have a good night!
16:01:02 <Michelle> Thank you Kat and have a wonderful drive.
16:01:23 <Michelle> I am out. Have a great night and bye all
16:01:43 <Betty> bye
16:03:27 <Betty> Jarno, are you sure about Grand?
16:04:04 <Kat> I wonder too - hhmmm
16:04:47 <Betty> I thought I saw a burst, but no other followed.
16:05:19 <Betty> I would not post it as eruption, Maybe should be a note
16:05:25 <Kat> I would think there would be more steam post eruption...
16:08:17 <Kat> Maybe
16:09:29 <Betty> yes, there were bursts.
16:12:50 <Kat> :thumbsup:
16:34:28 <Kat> OF
16:47:27 <ynpvisitor1645> FYI. A coyote cannot open a bison carcass on their own. Gonna need some bigger canids.
16:48:31 <Betty> so we need an alligator
16:52:07 <Kat> Betty, hahaha
16:53:13 <Kat> sooner or later it's going to stink! That mihght bring in some canids
16:53:39 <Betty> yep
16:55:56 <ynpvisitor1645> There is a group of two wolves in the area (one black and one grey last time I checked)
16:56:06 <ynpvisitor1645> Any group larger than two couple be Wapitis
16:57:07 <Betty> hopefully they find it soon
16:57:21 <Betty> will be interesting to watch
17:05:12 <ynpvisitor1645> Sorry any group larger than 3 could be Wapitis.
17:08:02 <Betty> where is the wapiti pack at the moment? Are they near?
17:10:45 <Kat> I believe the Wapitis are in the Hayden area - they have not been up NE like winters past
17:13:02 <Kat> The 3 packs in the NE and Lamar are Junctions, Lupine and Rescues
17:23:50 <Kat> I believe Lion is done with this series
17:27:45 <Betty> I call it a day, night all
17:29:48 <no> A lion could do it. So no lump feeders?
17:33:00 <Kat> Betty, night Betty
17:36:38 <Kat> :daisy:
17:41:31 <Kat> those ravens will show the wolves where to go!
17:42:40 <no> It is starting to cook.
17:43:10 <DanS> plate
17:43:12 <no> Reminds me of the pop corn in the foil pan.
17:43:34 <Kat> Nice Plate
17:44:10 <Kevin I-15> Xanterra will harvest it for the dining room.
17:44:48 <no> Can Kevin say Nachos?
17:44:56 <Kat> Kevin I-15, oh my!
17:46:32 <no> Kevin's neighbors are probably taking odd on when it will burst!
17:49:42 <Kat> Oh it's gonna bust!
17:50:28 <Kat> Hopefully some wolves will come in overnight
17:52:20 <no> Wolves are most likely busy with warm ones. More like bear food, if any are up yet.
17:59:24 <Kat> There was 1 bear already spotted out I think by Lake
17:59:52 <Kat> But a bear would be nice!
18:01:45 <Kat> wow someone out walking
18:06:31 <Kat> OF
19:47:40 <Kat> :daisy:
19:53:02 <Kat> OF
