Note:I observed Steamboat from 0800 to approximately 1230. Most of that time was spent down at Steerage logging runoff but the last half hour (during which time no detailed notes were taken) was spent on the Lower Platform watching minors. In short, activity has continued to progress since last evening. South Vent is strong, with frequent voluminous minors that occasionally get vertical and send nice discharge down the runoff channel. North Vent is also more active but not to the same extent, voluminous but staying mostly angled. Concerted eruptions were more frequent this morning but still not as frequent as we should probably like. At 0836 there was a Woo-hoo minor that sent a nice surge down the runoff channel. 45 minutes later at 0917 there was a solid OMG! that sent RMichaels and I jumping to our feet with exclamations, there was brief, but solid granding in North and South Vent was doing it's best Fan impression. Those were the two strongest minors seen. Throughout the rest of my time there was a peppering of decent, but brief minors with some vertical play and heavy runoff. The trench is slowly being dredged, with some change from last night, specifically an absence of finer sediment, with most clasts being pea-softball sized. It will take some more strong minors to clear everything out.
