Not forgetting that if the aircraft had been in the sky for several hours at the usual cruising altitudes, the undercarriage would be pretty chilly at the point of touchdown.

I've had a complete covering of ice on the gear (and wing lower surfaces) having descended through cloud on a winter approach.
