Every night I walk around a lake by my house, which is still mainly frozen. The weather is warmer now, but you can still see some signs of the ice fishing that went on this winter. Yesterday afternoon, I chuckled when I noticed a couple of these Ghost Chairs on the frozen lake by my house (Figure 1). The idea of lounge chairs on a frozen lake strikes me as funny. Anyway, the ice fisherman had left their chairs by their fishing hole for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, the shore ice has started to melt and now they cannot get out onto the ice to recover them. I guess they will need to wait for the ice to completely melt and then try to recover their chairs from the lake bottom.
