The ice from the pond melted and the water was nice and clear today, so I was able to see all four of our goldfish. They amazingly survived the winter. I could not find the catfish, though he has not been spotted since last summer. He may still be in there, he may be dead. No one really knows. But, I was pretty happy to see the goldfish alive and well. Our pond is only 18 inches deep and I was afraid it might freeze solid over the winter and kill the fish, but apparently that did not happen. Either that or the goldfish survived an experiment in cryogenics.
