Ice can be colder than zero degrees centigrade; there is no law that keeps ice at zero degrees. If there were such a law, then ice would be a perfectly clean, infinite source of energy. We could simply pump heat out of ice, and the heat would never diminish. But this is not the case. So it is possible to add water ices of different temperatures and in the long run the temperatures would balance out.
