I know this might not be posted for some time, but.. two especially unusual  
things today.
Silex erupted at 1104 initial, seen by Graham Meech. It probably also  
erupted on Sunday and last week, so may be back to 2 or 3 day intervals.
More significant, maybe -- heck, Giant might have gone by now. This  
afternoon, South Grotto Fountain underwent a series of 13 eruptions. Intervals  were 
mostly on the order of 10 to 12 minutes, durations around 2 minutes.  Indicator 
Spring stayed at a high level throughout, varying up and down only a  couple 
of inches. Most eruptions of South were accompanied by incipient/not  quite 
there action in Startling, and also by sometimes-vigorous Central Vent  
eruptions. There was often rather heavy splashing in Grotto, heavy enough to  make us 
think it might start without the Fountains. Finally, after a short 5  minute 
interval, things held off for 23 minutes when Grotto Fountain erupted.  Then 
Grotto started less than 2 minutes later with the biggest initial surgey  any of 
us have ever seen. Really, it certainly reached and might well have  topped 
50 feet.
During all this stuff, Giant Group had a Mastiff bathtub, a weak (2 minute,  
no Feather Satellite) hot period an hour later, and then another bathtub an 
hour  after the hot period.
Being a semi-working homeowner, I had to get back to town, so...
