Icebergs, hot knives and butter

“I am a satellite imagery analyst and analyse the images we get for the conditions of the ice in the Canadian arctic, the NorthWest passage and the entire east coast of Canada, as well. We monitor ice conditions and icebergs and all that. And we run down to the American side a little as well. Especially this year. They have a lot of ice on their coast. They are not used to that. We are monitoring unusual conditions. Nowadays we have lots more satellite and data and there are a lot more ships into the Northwest passage. There was a European ship that went back and forth all summer. He was pressing through ice all summer long and he went through it like a hot knife through butter.”
