Air conditioning denizens in Denver say they don’t know where they’ll go next
Denver is experiencing its own kind of cold weather and the air conditioning units that are used to keep the city cool have been forced to shut down due to the threat of the flu.
Here’s a look at some of the denizens of the Denver metro area who say they have no idea where they’re going next: *Elissa, 26, who moved to Denver from New Jersey three years ago to work in the medical field, is looking forward to winter.
She said she’s not sure if she’ll be able to return to New Jersey, but said she doesn’t care if she’s staying put or moving elsewhere.
She wants to see what the weather brings.
“I don’t think there’s any doubt in my mind that if we get hit with the flu and the flu season starts, it’s going to be a really big storm,” she said.
*Brent, 23, a student at the University of Colorado, said he’ll take a few days to warm up and get ready.
He said he’s hoping the snow comes down and temperatures drop to between 15 and 20 degrees.
He’s been living in his parents basement for the past year and he doesn’t want to leave.
“It’s just too cold.
I have to get comfortable in this new climate, and I’m hoping for a lot of warmth,” he said.
He also said he doesn�t want to spend the winter in a tent because he doesn?t want the tent to get wet.
*Lorraine, 22, said she plans to stay in her apartment in Denver for a while, but she won?t be moving there until the city gets warmer.
She and her boyfriend are expecting their first child.
“We have no plans to move,” Lorraine said.
“There is no reason we can’t stay here until the season gets warmer.”
*John, a retired computer engineer, said it’s too soon to say where he will be in his hometown, which has a population of about 4,000 people.
But he said he’d prefer to be in a warmer area.
“If we had a warmer climate, we would be able with the technology and technology, we?re able to do this much better,” he told The Associated Press.
*Melissa, a 24-year-old who moved from California three years back, said the city is in the midst of a heat wave and she can see the effects it’s having on the economy.
Melissa said she was excited to start the new job, but it’s not easy to stay at home because of the heat.
“For me, it doesn’t seem worth it,” she told The Denver Post.
“That?s where the money is.”
She also doesn’t think her parents are staying, so she’ll have to move with them.
“My parents are leaving, and they want to move out, and so I?m going to move into their place,” she added.
*Rashid, a 28-year old graduate student, said temperatures are getting warmer in his area.
He plans to spend a few nights in Denver before moving on to Portland.
“You know, if I stay in Denver, I?ll stay in a big house and have no windows, so it?s pretty much just not cool in here,” he joked.
He is hoping for some snow, but not as much as in the winter of last year.
“When the winter comes, it?ll be a little bit different.
I mean, it will be warmer,” Rashid said.
