Re: NFC: Re: DP Frozen pond question

The size fo the pond would really make quite a difference....
The reason being that the water floating up would then get chilled, and
freeze farther down.  The warmest water (Around 3-4 degrees C) won't stay
that warm, if the hole's too big, or the pond too small.
