Hi there,
I find wearing ear protection is well worth missing on some environmental
sounds, though I totally understand your concerns. I just have to take it
slower than I normally would. Winter travel is awful, so I wish you luck. If
all the snow could be reserved for lawns and ski hills and kept from the
sidewalks that would work well with me. Snow is for skiing not walking in!
A white Christmas to you,

Hello all,

This year I moved to Boulder, CO, after spending my entire life living
in Phoenix, Arizona where the coldest winter days get down to 40
degrees. I've been learning a lot over the past few weeks about
traveling in the cold and snow and have actually found it to be a lot
less daunting than I expected! The only thing I haven't quite figured
out yet is how to keep my ears warm without losing too much
environmental sound. When traffic sounds are already muffled by snow I
want to be able to hear as much of what remains as I can for good
orientation, but I also don't want to freeze my ears off!
