Ice in Winter

Nature has a special way to protect the life of all of her ponds from freezing solid in the winter. As water freezes it becomes less dense and floats on top of the water. This floating ice then becomes an insulator to the water below. If water became denser as it froze and sunk to the bottom of ponds and streams, it would not be long before all of our ponds and streams would become frozen solid and aquatic life would cease to exist as we know it.
