Jesus walked on water ... below zero

Like that currently running Fedex tv commercial on Discovery Channel (Asia) where the delivery guy walks across the river (thanks to a battalion of submerged divers holding up a pontoon), Jesus too may have had some help (from mother nature--His father's brainchild).
Rare conditions could have conspired to create hard-to-see ice on the Sea of Galilee that a person could have walked on back when Jesus is said to have walked on water, a scientist said today.
On the other hand, with all that gale and raging sea (Mt. 14:24)--something that scared the Hell (and Faith) out of Peter--Jesus must've had ice cleats on to even stay on the bobbing ice blocks. And he had to keep himself from being thrown over by the wind and waves and had to jump from one ice sheet to another to reach his minions' boat. That feat in itself would've been a miracle! To top it off Jesus must've had an extra pair of cleats for Peter.

Shoot! Another hypothesis to save a legend drowned.
