Hi i like in Boston Ma too, actually in Quincy but, tis all the same,

How deep is your pond? Unless it is like atleast 2 feet deep and has lots of dirt or mulch at the bottom, i would not do it. And i would take your koi in they will die. My fish in my pond died everytime i tried to just leave them in there during the winter. I would not risk it.
