Winter's November advance

It is now late November, and winter has advanced.  While we prepare for turkey and friends, the earth has frozen, whitening grasses:
We burn wood every day, now, to fend off the cold (30s F in day, down to teens at night).  Woodpiles are being taken down, hunk by hunk.
Ponds have frozen more seriously than before:
Darkness cuts short the afternoon, dimming the day after 3, ending the light after 4.

No accumulation of snow right now.  No major slicks of ice on the roads.
