"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."
