09:51:03 <LindaG (11)> Micah, that's exciting, when was the last time you were there?
09:51:08 <Katie šŸŒ»> I opened it up again. Not likely needed, but...
09:51:19 <LindaG (11)> Katie šŸŒ», thx
09:51:26 <Micah> I did a visit in May of Last year, so it's been about a year and a half.
09:51:48 <Micah> I try to visit at least every year. Gotta try to keep consistent visits in place in my GOSA role.
09:51:52 <LindaG (11)> Micah, too long :)
09:51:59 <Micah> I agree.
09:52:14 <Micah> It's been torture watching all the fun on Geyser Hill this summer.
09:52:29 <LindaG (11)> Micah, I'll be there.soon, just about a year
09:52:38 <Micah> Excellent.
09:52:56 <LindaG (11)> Micah, yeah lot of good stuff happened
09:52:59 <CalebD> I will be there in early october
09:53:11 <LindaG (11)> CalebD, :thumbsup:
09:53:16 <Mike J> Micah, I'm planning on September, but I think it will be about a week before you get there. Probably just as well. You know me, I'd just want to talk GOSA business.
09:53:29 <Micah> LOL.
09:54:49 <Micah> Yeah I wish I could swing a labor day visit, but I need to be present at my work to help with the crowds on big holidays
09:56:15 <Micah> Daisy
09:59:17 <CraigC> hey geeks
09:59:28 <CalebD> Hi CraigC
09:59:35 <CraigC> CalebD, hey
09:59:44 <LindaG (11)> CraigC, howdy
09:59:53 <CraigC> LindaG (11), howdy :)
10:11:22 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Back Linda
10:12:25 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Controls up
10:18:09 <LindaG (11)> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, were you having problems with controls?
10:19:24 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> No
10:19:30 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> OF
10:20:02 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I just got back for Dr appt
10:24:49 <LindaG (11)> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, oh geez I forgot, I lost my internet
10:25:15 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> :)
10:25:18 <LindaG (11)> So Katie picked up
10:25:50 <Katie šŸŒ»> I stayed on until I saw the cam move since Kevin didn't say he heard Perry Mason Music. >(
10:26:23 <LindaG (11)> Katie šŸŒ», Thank you
10:26:45 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I was late for the Perry Mason music
10:29:03 <Katie šŸŒ»> did you all see Nixle alert? Madison -> West Thumb emergency road closure?
10:30:19 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> What happened?
10:31:05 <LindaG (11)> I think that is the construction debris elmily had in her note this morning
10:31:13 <Katie šŸŒ»> What I hear is "construction company spilled hot asphalt mixture along the road between midway geyser basin and old faithful overpass"
10:31:13 <LindaG (11)> *emily
10:31:26 <LindaG (11)> Wow
10:31:29 <Katie šŸŒ»> "once the mix is off the roadway traffic flow will be restored. Hopefully later today."
10:35:03 <LindaG (11)> I wonder how you get hot asphalt mixture off the roadway
10:36:42 <Julia> I wonder if they will just spread it out and add a rock mix. They do that for temp. coatings on roads.
10:36:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> A loader will scrape it off
10:42:51 <Katie šŸŒ»> I posted on FB, but did I tell you about the mess at the neighbor's house? Loader scraping brought it to mind...
10:44:00 <Katie šŸŒ»> Anyway, water main break, inside his property (so his responsibility). $30k estimate. WHAT a MESS! We live at the end of a cul-de-sac. All of the trucks made it difficult (but not impossible - not complaining) to get to our driveway for a week.
10:44:43 <Katie šŸŒ»> Then the neighbor, who maintains everything meticulously, hand swept and then hosed off the cul-de-sac MANUALLY (took at least 5 hours) on Friday.
10:47:20 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> How big is their water line? Sounds pretty excessive.
10:47:23 <Betty> morning all
10:47:34 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi
10:47:44 <Chancellor> Good Morning
10:48:33 <Katie šŸŒ»> It's just a single family dwelling. But they had to rip up the concrete driveway and a big section of lawn
10:48:41 <Betty> hi Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, Chancellor, Katie šŸŒ», LindaG (11)
10:49:03 <Dave from Bā„¢> Morning everyone
10:49:17 <Betty> hey Dave from Bā„¢
10:49:37 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> OK that makes sense.
10:49:41 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi Dave
11:03:25 <Betty> just watched the capture of yesterdays NG major, that was really fun!!!
11:04:15 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Pretty impressive
11:04:46 <Betty> pretty cool stuff :-)
11:07:37 <Micah> That Geyser is so cool.
11:09:05 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I caught one in basin once. Even when you expect it the thing surprises you.
11:18:28 <Betty> hey Micah

12:04:14 <Kat (T-8)> OF
12:05:30 <Jeff> i just asked one of the people at the store if theyre doing shakes to confirm cause i know last year we didnt do them for whatever reason
12:06:10 <Betty> hi Jeff
12:06:13 <3> I heard they were gone forever
12:06:45 <Betty> hi Kat (T-8), linda, 3
12:06:55 <Jeff> i never heard that but i still talk to the fountain manager
12:07:19 <3> I would love to be wrong about that...
12:07:59 <Jeff> im not expecting a quick response though cause the fountain manager is running the fountain at lower and upper
12:08:50 <Dave from Bā„¢> Too much labor for shakes?
12:09:19 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Bobcat by OF
12:09:43 <Jeff> i think part of them not doing it last year was lack of staff and i wouldnt know why they wouldnt bring them back this year unless it came from higher up in the company

14:59:31 <3> short Turban yet still no Grand
14:59:59 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I think Grand is asleep
15:18:04 <3> no Grand...
15:18:11 <3> oh well
15:18:31 <Micah (lurking)> Time to set another 15 minute timer and plug away at this article some more!
15:18:44 <KorbenC> Hi Micah
15:18:49 <KorbenC> I see no Grand yet :(
15:18:54 <Micah (lurking)> Hey Korben
15:55:25 <Micah (lurking)> Steam from Old Tardy's drain area? Or maybe Slurp?
15:55:49 <KorbenC> could also just be Crystal steaming
15:56:01 <KorbenC> alost 9hrs into Grand
15:56:36 <Micah (lurking)> Ah the good ol' long Grand sits, gotta love it.
16:12:18 <Micah (lurking)> Little Anemone ie :)
16:15:47 <Micah (lurking)> When I was doing my big long sits, the "typical" eruption of Little was 2-3 minutes.
16:16:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> With or without hazelnuts?
16:19:59 <Micah (lurking)> Hee-haw
16:20:45 <CalebD> Micah (lurking), It also sometimes has 30s ones a few minutes after anemone big
16:21:38 <Micah (lurking)> Yeah. I need to do another prolonged sit there this year.
16:21:46 <Micah (lurking)> 2014 was fun.
16:23:05 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Looks like the Grand crowds are a bit soggy
16:38:29 <DanS (working)> Sticking it out in the pouring rain for a stamy one burst Grand - that's Geyser gazing for ya!
16:39:49 <KorbenC> D9/G1C probably? (guessing on G and C)
16:40:08 <KorbenC> No, its gotta be D9/G1Q
17:07:22 <CalebD> CalebD
17:07:31 <CalebD> Opps
17:26:53 <3> so the rain finally came
17:57:07 <CalebD(1)> They need to update the Refrance picture on the NPS Webcams page, it shows Oblong as Giant
17:57:57 <CalebD(1)> And they shoudl add Sawmill & Oblong
19:10:08 <KorbenC> FAN AND MORTAR
19:10:09 <KorbenC> .
19:10:10 <KorbenC> .
19:10:13 <KorbenC> Nope
19:10:14 <KorbenC> Riverside
19:10:17 <KorbenC> Nevermind :P
19:10:44 <KorbenC> The amount of steam made my mind take a blank
19:49:43 <3> Grand was a 2 burst! D10/T2Q
20:14:30 <DanS> plate
