Voices Around Town

How about this cold weather?

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

"I wear two pairs of pants now — I actually do. Two pairs of pants, wooly socks, I always have my mittens with me and just more layers."

Samara Mohammed, South San Francisco

"I worry about my tortoise, Littlefoot, getting too cold. I keep the heat on and I had to get a stronger heat lamp for him. It's the coldest it's been since I've had him, and so I'm worried about how he'll respond. His breed is from South America, so they're not really used to this."

Jocelyn Baird, Mountain View

"I'm putting on extra layers. My habits haven't changed much. I have seasonal work early in the morning, so I have to get up and go."

Chris Knoph, Mountain View

"I actually like it. I'm from Pennsylvania and it's given me the opportunity to wear all my winter clothes."

Max Bergen, East Stroudsburg, Penn.

"I don't think it's that cold. It's not warm, but I'm from Alberta, where it gets well into the negative, Fahrenheit."

Eric Warnke, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
