Good question.  I live in VA; it gets below freezing sometimes but its not 
like the northern states.  On the other hand its not as warm as Florida in 
winter.  So far when I need to cover my ears for warmth, I do so with a hat 
covering my ears partly.  A hat is thin so i can still hear pretty well.
