Note:Steamboat didn't have any exceptional minors during the times observed. By exceptional minors, I mean minors that would formerly be described using the highly subjective and now universally panned terms of "Woo," "Woohoo," "OMG," "Holy S___," etc. Steamboat had periodic increases in activity every few hours, but very few minors with any North Vent vertical play. As Bill mentioned in his note, the wind made for difficult viewing conditions so it's possible vertical play was obscured. Despite the general absence of vertical, North Vent was thick, tall, and voluminous. South Vent produced good runoff and appeared to have frequent vertical play (from what could be seen through the steam). Each vent had good energy and there were quite a few concerted eruptions. That said, it seemed to me like the energy shifted back and forth between North and South vent and they only occasionally matched energy levels. As of my departure time, it looked like a regression in activity compared to yesterday, which had some tall sustained concerted minors with vertical play from both vents that got observers on their feet. One minor at 1156 yesterday even caused one observer to yell "Woo!" in elation and encouragement. No such exclamations occurred in my presence today.
