Hello from your friend Sydney in MN, where it feels like negative
twenty-something, it's windy, and it's SNOWING!  :)

my personal favorite is to completely hide my face inside the hood of
my favorite hoodie, pulling it completely tight with a drawstring; I
then zip my coat shut over it and put my coat hood down.  I look
really "scary" and funny, and my friends get a kick out of talking to
a hood and are envious of having to keep there faces partially bare in
order to see.  :)  My second favorite thing is to wrap a scarf around
my ears and face.  I haven't had any trouble hearing with either of
these methods, though I must confess that half of the point is to look
silly and to make my friends, teachers, etc. laugh at the faceless
person walking around.  :)  I'm not sure how helpful you'll find these
suggestions, but I couldn't help myself from posting.

Winter wishes,
Sydney (whose radiator is broken and who doesn't mind :) )
