09:04:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like Black Hole is ie.
09:08:21 <0> yep, it sucks the life out of everything
09:26:51 <dc> Do they know they over adjusted it?
09:37:09 <Eric> Did they break the cam on purpose?
09:40:47 <Dave from B™> oh boy
09:42:15 <0> the cam went down ` 1441 0n the 18th
09:43:19 <Dave from B™> Thanks, 0. I assume it will be back up today since it is a workday.
09:44:21 <0> is a htoday so maybe tomorrow
09:44:41 <0> holiday**
09:44:45 <Eric> Yep, federal holiday.
09:45:06 <Dave from B™> That's right:P
09:46:02 <Dave from B™> Too many federal holidays...we need to get rid of about 5 of them...Too many excuses to not work.
09:46:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Agree
09:46:47 <Eric> More federal holidays...we need more excuses not to work :-P
09:47:17 <Eric> Kevin doesn't even know what that word means.
10:18:22 <Eric> Wow...guess I killed the conversation :-|
10:18:39 <Dave from B™> No one wants to watch a black screen:)
10:19:46 <dc> It may win an Oscar?
10:33:34 <Dave from B™> Eric, did you have a good Father's Day with your dad?
10:45:37 <Eric> Dave from B™, I did...long day of hanging out with family and eating all day :-D My wife loves to cook!
10:47:29 <Dave from B™> Yeah. Same thing at our houe except it wasMichelle's birthday so Taylor, Parker and Michelle's mom did all the cooking.
10:51:13 <Eric> Nice! My wife would cook for her birthday....she loves it.
10:51:25 <Eric> I would get to do all the dishes though :-P
10:53:17 <Dave from B™> That's no fun
10:53:42 <Dave from B™> Just take a drink everytime you was a dish and you'll be fine:)
10:53:48 <Dave from B™> wash*
10:53:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I just slept and had leftover pizza
10:54:29 <Eric> haha...I made my way through high school washing dishes. I can rip through them pretty quickly.
10:55:07 <Eric> ohhh man, sorry to hear that Kevin :-( I hope you get some time with the kids and grandkids soon.
10:56:36 <KorbenC> Morning all.
10:56:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We were resting up from the grandsons.
10:58:17 <Eric> Morning Korben
10:58:28 <Eric> Kevin...ahhh, that makes sense :-D
10:58:39 <KorbenC> Hi Eric,
11:00:16 <Dave from B™> Morning Korben
11:01:09 <KorbenC> Morning Dave
11:01:45 <KorbenC> Happy day late fathers day to you all :)
11:38:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Are you going to go down for the annular eclipse Eric?
12:00:14 <Eric> I don't even know when that is Kevin!
12:00:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> October 14
12:06:42 <Eric> oh nice, I don't have plans yet :-D
12:07:03 <Dave from B™> Eric, you shouldn't have to go to far
12:07:14 <Dave from B™> too*?
12:09:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> https://eclipse.aas.org/eclipse-america-2023-2024
12:34:59 <kcmule> I couldn't see traveling for an annular..
12:35:42 <CraigC> where is the new webcam picture?
12:36:04 <KorbenC> Webcam went down yesterday, has not come back up yet.
12:36:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave broke it
12:36:25 <CraigC> was it shaped like a deer?
12:36:27 <kcmule> we're looking at the dark side of the moon
12:37:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I wouldn't travel much but I have family in the path so it is worth it.
12:38:57 <kcmule> I might go to Texas for the solar in 24. even there it's like a 50-50 chance of clear skies, if that.
12:39:44 <kcmule> * total solar, to be particular
12:40:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It goes through the house I lived in when I was stationed at Ft Hood.
12:43:10 <kcmule> it goes thru my hometown in Buffalo but counting on clear skies there is an even bigger risk
12:45:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave loves eclipse traffic.
12:46:46 <Dave from B™> wait a mionute. I leave for a fw minutes and i'm thrown under the bus?
12:47:07 <CraigC> bus?
12:47:23 <kcmule> me too. took 11.5 hours to get from Glendo to Denver. when I closed my eyes I still saw brake lights. thanks a lot Dave.
12:47:24 <Dave from B™> Must be a Montana saying:)
12:47:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> In the eclipse traffic that wouldn't have mattered.
12:48:01 <Dave from B™> Well, we are going to hill country in Texas and NOT MOVING until the day after the eclipse
12:48:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I stayed at my daughter's place in Rexburg. It was not bad.
12:49:54 <Dave from B™> Texas will be bursting at the seems for the eclipse
12:51:24 <kcmule> hoping to just find a place to pitch a tent, preferably with minimal rattlers
13:06:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Those rattlers there are BIG. Watch for copperheads and cottonmouths too
13:06:52 <CraigC> Forest and CraigM are in the park, they are cool to hang with
13:08:50 <Dave from B™> CraigC, nice to see you out on your bike.
13:09:17 <CraigC> trails are so nice right now
13:11:24 <Dave from B™> Its been cool so far in June....might need to go south to get warmer:)
13:11:34 <Dave from B™> High of 59 tomorrow
13:12:28 <KorbenC> Dave, looks like it will warm up soon :) Next week Billings could get to the upper 70's.
13:13:02 <Dave from B™> Garden needs 80-85
13:13:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We haven't had an official 100° day here yet.
13:13:20 <Dave from B™> We have fire blight in 2 trees becasue of all the moisture that one week
13:13:55 <CraigC> Dave from B™, do you have any YNP plans this year?
13:14:13 <Dave from B™> July 7-11. Becca is coming home to go with us
13:14:17 <Dave from B™> Madison CG
13:14:21 <CraigC> nice
13:14:46 <CraigC> I got trips in aug and sept
13:15:15 <Dave from B™> Nice. I'm so glad you're able to get back to the park.
13:15:38 <KorbenC> Dave, that will be fun :) Hopefully the endless rain storms stop by then.
13:15:42 <CraigC> reserved 7 nights in sept, but can stay indefinitely past the reservations
13:17:15 <KorbenC> CraigC, Nice! I've got a week early September as well. Hopefully another Giantess year.
13:17:20 <Dave from B™> Yeah...it needs to warm up in the next 2 weeks
13:18:17 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, it should! End of June could see some really really hot days.
13:18:49 <Dave from B™> It's never too hot:).
13:19:30 <KorbenC> That is what AC is for!
13:19:55 <Dave from B™> We keep our house at 80. What's AC?:D
13:21:05 <KorbenC> LOL
13:21:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You would break it anyway
13:25:17 <Dave from B™> Our AC only works when we have people over
13:26:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I haven't turned it on in the depot this year.
14:40:12 <Kat (phone)> So we still have the dreaded circle!
14:40:31 <Kat (phone)> Anyone know that's happening?
14:40:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is spinning
14:41:01 <KorbenC> Morning Kat, and yes, the circle is back.
14:41:31 <Kat (phone)> Hahaha! So right Kevin, its spinning!
14:41:39 <Dave from B™> About 3,989 revolutions per hour
14:41:52 <KorbenC> Why it is doing that is anyone's guess. My best bet is a combination of Dave and it being a new cam, but mostly Dave.
14:42:02 <Kat (phone)> Dave from B™, LOL, I needed that information for sure!
14:42:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is just like me. It is getting really old. :P
14:42:25 <Dave from B™> Yes...very valuable...might be a Jeopardy question someday
14:42:31 <Kat (phone)> Kevin L™ 🌵, and me Kevin!
14:43:13 <Kat (phone)> Guess no work on can today! Another vacation day, but I miss it!
14:44:04 <Kat (phone)> Time to cook dinner! :)
15:56:03 <Eric> ahhh, the things we have to look forward too :-(
16:15:05 <CalebD> Nice looks like there was a giant hot period
16:15:32 <KorbenC> ???
16:15:36 <KorbenC> There was a WHAT?
16:16:45 <CalebD> Well mastiff usualy does not erupt exept for during hot periods right?
16:17:29 <KorbenC> My GT has not synced today for whatever reason
16:17:45 <KorbenC> If Mastiff erupted, then Giant erupted I am pretty sure? Mastiff is massive.
16:18:20 <CalebD> the note says erupting to 2 feet, which sounds like hot period boiling action to me
16:19:33 <KorbenC> Oh. Pretty sure that would just be normal depth charging, been doing that the entire dormancy as far as I am aware.
16:21:12 <CalebD> Yeah looks like that from the notes this year and last year
16:21:55 <KorbenC> I wish Giant would have a hot period :P
16:22:05 <CalebD> I was hoping for a giant hot period :(
16:22:42 <KorbenC> Sometime in the next few years I hope.
16:22:51 <CalebD> Looks like it tried for a hot period on the 16th, based on Polly's note, but never got there
16:25:03 <KorbenC> Assuming you are looking at the Mastiff note for that date, I wouldn't say it tried. Bijou has been doing weak slowdowns for awhile, also I didn't see anything about a footbath or bathtub.
16:25:51 <CalebD> KorbenC, :thumbsup:
16:26:09 <CalebD> Looks like there was a 30s bijou pause in may
16:27:50 <KorbenC> CalebD, indeed, full pause and not caused by Grotto (Long Grotto eruptions stop Bijou for hours).
16:28:19 <CalebD> :thumbsup:
16:28:40 <CalebD> Maybe in a year or 2 we can start getting hot periods again :)
16:28:41 <KorbenC> I want too see notes about footbaths or bathtups in Mastiff though, been about 4.5yrs since last Giant.
16:29:03 <CalebD> :thumbsup:
16:29:39 <KorbenC> That would be nice, hot periods are cool to watch even without Giant
16:30:08 <CalebD> The feather vents seam fun to watch
16:30:51 <KorbenC> They are! If you haven't I highly recommend looking up some Youtube hot periods.
16:31:17 <CalebD> I ahve seams some videos of them on Geysers.org
16:32:13 <KorbenC> CalebD, check Facebook, I've got something I want to send to you.
16:32:53 <CalebD> :thumbsup:
16:34:39 <KorbenC> Sent, hopefully you can read them :)
16:43:33 <CalebD> :thumbsup:
16:44:17 <CalebD> I hope they get the wc back and running soon, I realy want to see grand with the new wc :)
16:45:00 <KorbenC> Me too, I wonder why it is down.
16:46:09 <CalebD> Hopefully nothing major
16:46:38 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
17:29:13 <CalebD> Cool to see a large eruption of Grotto Foutain
18:34:13 <dc> I bet those people are tired of standing around waiting for of.
