GREENFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

While many people struggled with the latest heat wave, workers at Summit Ice Inc. in Greenfield were chilling out.

Owner Marcus Stetson said he employees more than a dozen people during the busy summer months. July is typically the busiest month, and makes up about one third of total business for the year.

While the heat index was over one hundred degrees Friday, employees worked in a room that was kept between 40 and 45 degrees. The various bags of ice they sell were stored in a large room kept at 15 degrees. Employee Daniel Kempf started last week, just before the latest heat wave. He said he likes working in the cold, because he doesn't want to have to worry about sweating and heat exhaustion.

Summit Ice supplies bagged ice in various sizes for several small and large retailers across western Massachusetts, including WalMart and CVS. They also make 300 pound, crystal clear blocks for ice sculptors.
