   As Scott said, it seems that Beehive is behaving more normally again.  We were able to make some good guesses about when it would erupt this past weekend.  Here are some times that I have copied for the last few days - some of them from my times in the park and some from other reports such as the webcam.  (Hopefully I have these copied correctly, as I didn't go back to the original source to double-check.)

   It will be interesting to check when the data is downloaded again next spring/summer to see if some of those intervals are double.  We heard of one possible false or mid-cycle Indicator on the 15th.  The Visitor's Center called over the radio to ask if we could confirm a possible Indicator report from a visitor.  When we checked, the Indicator was not going.  There could have been mid-cycle or false Indicators the last few days, though, because often it was not in our view.

Go Beehive!
