Thanksgiving week is just ahead. And that means the usual events in San Diego and the usual weather.
Anyone who has lived here a while already knows that November may have the best weather of the year, with usually mild temperatures during the day for most of the month will cool nights and amazing sunsets.
And that has been the case so far this month. And with very cold weather\ already putting some of the Midwest and East into the deep freeze, snow is just around the corner if it isn’t already there.
So unless you are travelling for the Thanksgiving holiday to one of those places, you don’t have to worry about the weather.
And along with our nice weather in November, there are also all the good things that happen like the annual Mother Goose Parade in El Cajon this Sunday. It may have changed over the years, but it’s still a Thanksgiving week tradition for thousands of people.
Other Thanksgiving week events in San Diego include the Father Joe’s 5K, and the Oceanside Turkey Trot along with Ice skating at the beach at the Hotel Del, and the start of our version of a real life Christmas village in the town of Julian.
The only thing missing when it comes to the usual things during Thanksgiving week in San Diego this year is the annual Chargers Blood Drive that had gone on for almost 40 years.
But San Diego has found a way to still get that done with a December 16th blood drive event that involves the Padres, Gulls and all our local college teams…. that will remind us that we don’t need an NFL team that said thanks but no thanks to San Diego…to still be thankful for a community like San Diego.
