Their tolerance of the sheer cold always amazes me, such hardy creatures.

That's why I love my down comforter...if the down keeps these little fellows warm in ice water, it can surely keep me warm in bed!

I felt so sorry for them paddling about in icy water, but then I thought, it's preferable to sitting in hot Orange sauce ....
