Throughout this note, "same" refers to 1532a and 1533a for behavior. 1532a small boiling ie (¼ to ½ size of regular Anemone-Little play). 1533a boil (about Anemone-Little-sized), then small; 1533b same as 1533a. 1534a same, weak; 1534b same w/ sustained boil. 1535a same; 1535b big boil (Anemone-Big-sized) sustained; 1535c same, small (Anemone-Little-sized is probably generous). 1536a same, small; 1536b same, very small; 1536c same, v. small. 1537a same, small (long, ±15-20-odd seconds); 1537b same, small; 1537c same, small. 1538a same, big; 1538b (cam sync, no event); 1538c same, long. 1539a same, small (long pause ±15s preceded). 1540a same, small; 1540b same, small. 1541a same, small; 1541b same, small; 1541c same, decent start (Anemone-Little-sized), small otherwise. 1542a same, small; 1542b same, small. 1543a same, v. small (long pause ≥±20s preceded); 1543b same, v. small. 1544a same, v. small but picked up in size - lasted >30s; 1544b big start, small otherwise. 1545a same, Anemone-Big-sized start; 1545b same, small. 1546a same, small w/ big boil; 1546b same, sustained. 1547a same, short duration with long pause preceding; 1547b same, short pause. 1548a same, bigger than other events; 1548b same, decent boil on start. 1549a same, small. 1550a same, small (long pause preceded); 1550b same, small. 1551a same, v. small; 1551b same, v.small. 1552 cam panned away, end of observations.

2167 19 Aug 2015 @ 0800 --- Micah Kipple Still slightly murky this morning. Teal blue water with a little more vigorous boiling than normal. No evidence of a followup eruption overnight.
2129 16 Aug 2015 @ 0800 16 Aug 2015 @ 0853 Micah Kipple Lots of strong boiling this morning. A couple "almost minors" to 4 feet, and at 0853 there was a botryoidal-like bubble to 2 feet that was spectacularly beautiful, if not startling.
1888 11 Jul 2015 @ 1530 11 Jul 2015 @ 1710 Micah Kipple Improbable had several large episodes of violent boiling over the west (new vent) that I observed during this time period. Some of the surges were 3 feet tall and just as wide and sent a small flood or runoff down it's channels.
1510 18 Jan 2015 @ 0730 --- mhreed Snow marker placed in the late afternoon on the 17th was missing. Possible that the snow simply melted due to warm ground/warm air temperature, but ice chunks completely gone leading me to speculate that it may have had an event overnight. Pool color is completely back to normal.
1507 17 Jan 2015 @ 0740 --- WillBoekel snow marker still in place from last night. and the pool color is starting to clear
