Blade logic fails me - help me out here

So I went to a public skate today and managed to perform an experiment without having to change the variables myself (don't you love it when that happens? ). First half of the session, then the zamboni comes out, and then the second half of the session I find the ice is much softer and my skates are moving much better on it (I guess it had to do with the +150 people warming up the place....).

Anyway, the question is, if my blades are at 1/2 right now, what do I need to do to them to get that better glide and control I had on the softer ice, but on the usual (hard-ish) ice? Deeper hollow, shallower, what? I can't really wrap my head around it, to be honest...
