Fishy German gossip

Its not only the British that talk about the weather, the Germans do it relentlessly too, and why not it has been -16°C here (and the day after it was +1°C).

During my lunch hour I went walking on a lake and underneath the bridge I found this fish.

To fill you in on a few facts:
*The water was shallow here and the ice was frozen completley clear to the bottom
*Apparently underneath the bridge is the last place where the ice forms
*The ice in the rest of the lake is white because of the bubble of gas escaping from it when it is frozen
*There were quite a few fish frozen like this but not an obscene amount, there must, I think, be fish elsewhere in the lake where it is deeper that did not share this sorry fate.

I have a few ideas about how the fish died but I welcome any other theories, perhaps we could test them at Jacobs, in the pool, with the freezers from the back rooms.

Dead fishy
We are fascinated with the frozen fish. Do they live again when the thaw comes? How hardy can you be, first to stop and notice the frozen fish and then produce a seemingly unfrozen camera.Try out anything you like at Jacobs. But thank goodness it is now warmer. All love Granny and Grandpa
