When do fountains freeze?

I have a fountain full of koi fish. I'm in Georgia. Do you guys know about when decorative fountains begin to freeze over? I took these koi fish in as a favor to someone who got in over their head. They were supposed to be gone by now, so I'm totally unprepared to overwinter these guys. I will continue to care for them, but I'm getting a late start I suppose.

You might be able to overwinter them as is. Just check the water temp in the fountain to see. I used to have a friend who raised koi and he said they went into a torpid state which allowed to survive the winter.
