well for something to freeze it has to be 0 degrees or lower which is what ice is, frozen water. so the water has to be 1 degree or more to NOT freeze so the ice is colder than salt watercoz salt water is not frozen... does t6hat make sense? Actually, salt water CAN be colder than ice because the salt lowers the freezing point of the water.
