Gloria downloaded logger data at 9am with electronic eruption start time of 07:12. Since this directly contradicts Maureen's observation, I have removed this data point. The other data downloaded at the same time with the same device (08/18/18 1000E, 2021E) also did not match yesterday's observed eruptions, though I did download electronic times for yesterday and 8/17 PM through another device that appear to match.

7769 25 Oct 2017 @ 1116 25 Oct 2017 @ 1722 billwarnock As Udo has noted, overflows today were accompanied by very strong boils, mainly around the rim. Overflow/heavy boils ranged from 22 to 29 minutes in duration, but the last two seen beginning at 1516 and 1645 lasted 32 and 37 minutes respectively. Durations of drops below overflow ranged between 12 and 15 minutes throughout this period. The last two drops the water wasn't visible. I still believe it had a large eruption overnight.

7748 24 Oct 2017 @ 1613 24 Oct 2017 @ 1750 billwarnock Was in light overflow when I arrived. Also saw Fountain plume ie at 1613. Went to Flats to confirm & met Maureen. When we returned to GF after 1630 still in light overflow which increased until 1649 when pool dropped. Rises to overflow then slight drop continued until I left at 1750. Dan S still there.
7747 24 Oct 2017 @ 1700 --- Maureen Going in and out of overflow. Quick up and downs. No boils seen yet. Beautiful day in the LGB. So nice.
