The reflection of the mostly bare trees near one of the city ponds in Hillsboro?s Memorial Park contributed to an almost surreal scene Monday morning as a blanket of fog enveloped the area. Though last week had its share of sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures, Mother Nature?s portrait on Monday reminded residents that the ?death? of the growing season is pending as winter nears. By afternoon, though, the fog had lifted, and the sun briefly returned to brighten the day as the Thanksgiving holiday nears. The forecast calls for sunshine and high temperatures in the low to high 50s to be the norm for the remainder of the week.
