Being a new Minnesotan, I often wondered what happened to the fish in the ponds. Do they freeze and, as my real estate agent asked me “Do you think they thaw in the spring?” I hadn’t quite thought about it that way.
The ponds here freeze. I mean, really freeze. People walk on them, cross country ski, skate, walk their dogs …
Me? I’m just afraid I’m going to fall into a hole that’s not frozen and join the uh, frozen fish.
The question was answered when we went to view a house for sale that had a pond in the back. In the lower level of the house, there was an aquarium with fish.

The sign on the aquarium is what I found most interesting.
How easy the answer! The fish are brought inside for the winter and taken back out to the pond when the weather is nicer.
I never would have thought of that!
