Voices Around Town

What are some things you like or dislike about autumn?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Nick Veronin.

"I dislike the fact that there really isn't a season change. I'm from Seattle and the East Coast, and I'm used to seeing leaves changing and colder weather. But I love Oktoberfest. That's coming up!"

James Demuth, Mountain View

"I hate rain and I hate the cold, which is why I moved out of Chicago. The good thing about fall here is it is the last gasp of decent weather. Around here, the winter isn't cold, but it's wet. It's nasty weather. But at least I'm not shoveling snow."

Bob Cirese, San Francisco

"I host an annual Oktoberfest, which is fun. I also like the Indian Summer, which I look forward to. It's better than England, that's for sure."

Suzi Owens, Reading, England

"Compared to Belgium, fall here is very good. In Belgium it is cold and it rains too much. I would prefer to be here in the fall."

Romuald Deshayes, Mons, Belgium

"It would be much cooler in Switzerland, where I'm from originally. I wish it were a bit cooler here in the fall. Also, there are only really two seasons here. I like all four seasons, which we get in Switzerland."

Marisa Carlen, Mountain View
