A Yellowstone hot spot turned the road into bubbling asphalt soup and caused several of the attractions and geysers to be closed on Friday, July 11.
It is no secret that the power that sits under Yellowstone is huge super volcano called a caldera. The magma under Yellowstone causes the geysers and the hot springs that people come from miles around to see. From time to time, magma bubbles through the cracks to the surface. This time it caused Firehole Lake Drive to become a bubbling hot soupy mess.
Firehole Lake Drive provides access to Firehole Lake, the Great Fountain Geyser, White Dome Geyser, and a hot spring.  Those attractions have been shut down while the hot spot cools and the access way is repaired. Park officials say those areas will more than likely be closed for a week.
The extreme heat, causing what park officials are calling a “soupy mess,” came just as peak tourist season is hitting the park.

Weird Al was a college student in 1979 when he recorded his first hit, “My Bologna” — a parody of “My Sharona” by the Knack. Then an architecture student at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, he remembers thinking: Well, this is as good as it’s going to get.
“I never thought that I’d make a living being Weird Al,” the 54-year-old Al Yankovic tells The Post. (He got the architecture degree, but has only used it for his own home.) “I thought I’d have to grow up and be an adult. That hasn’t happened yet.”

I wish I could remember that Lou Reed concert in Tempe back in the 70’s.  I can only remember the start up band, Ian Dury and the Block Heads!
