Seriously? Thursday is Thanksgiving? I don’t see how that’s possible. But it is, apparently, and you and I and just about everyone will have to deal with it. Checking the T-Day folder, we find that in years past we have done the history of Thanksgiving; how to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner; how not to; how to prepare a traditional Italian Thanksgiving dinner; and what to do with T-Day leftovers. This year, given everything that’s going on in the nation and the world, it is time to examine what Thanksgiving really means, why it matters, and what we need to keep in mind as we approach another annual day of thanks.

LOS ANGELES — A fast-moving storm approaching from the northwest will move through Southern California late Tuesday night and early Wednesday. The storm should tap into deep moisture, resulting in a period of moderate to heavy rain, according to a bulletin issued Monday by the National Weather Service. The snow level will be near 6,000 feet to 6,500 feet, and then lower rapidly behind the cold front to about 4,000 feet. However, most of the significant rain will be over by the time the snow level lowers to 4,000 feet.

All public athletic fields were expected to remain closed to sporting activities until Thursday or Friday because Tuesday's morning rain caused muddy conditions, said Mike Ferris of Newport Beach's Park Patrol. A combination of safety concerns and preventive measures to lessen damage to the fields were reasons for their temporary closure, Ferris said. For more information, call the city's park patrol at (949) 795-2381. — Lauren Williams

The largest storm to hit California this season brought more than an inch of rain to Newport-Mesa by the end of Monday, weather experts said. “Some [storms] hit Southern California or Northern California, but this one hit the entire state,” said National Weather Service forecaster Stan Wasowski. From the past weekend through Monday, experts predict between an inch and an inch and a half of rain will have showered Newport-Mesa and the rest of the county. Orange County averages about 3 inches of rain in February, Wasowski said.

Late autumn storms dropped about .11 inches of rain on the Newport-Mesa area on Saturday morning. Forecasters predicted the skies would eventually clear up this afternoon with a high near 61 degrees. Police in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa reported only minor traffic accidents on Saturday due to the weather and no problems with flooding. Several large outdoor events scheduled for local parks were rained out on Saturday.

NEWPORT BEACH - Many on the Champions Tour say they love to play the Toshiba Classic because it's in Newport Beach. They enjoy the shops and restaurants nearby, and most of all they enjoy the sunny weather. The latter doesn't look as if it will hold up this weekend. Some of the biggest names from golf's past will try to get in three rounds in the 18th Toshiba Classic at Newport Beach Country Club. First-round play begins Friday at 10 a.m. The first tee time has been moved up on Saturday to 8 a.m. because of the threat of heavy rain.

With the rain beginning to fall Friday night, weather experts predicted showers could still come sometime today. A low-pressure system in the area brings the possibility of slight rain or even a thunderstorm, National Weather Service forecaster Ted MacKechnie said. Even if it rains, however, it isn't likely to pour. The most rain to be expected is about a quarter-inch, MacKechnie said. "This low pressure's not very moist, so maybe a quarter-inch [would fall] in some places, but it's not the kind of storm that would put widespread rain in most areas," he said.

Deirdre Newman Like the beach area that needs the sun's warm rays to thrive during the summer, car washes are at the mercy of Mother Nature in the winter. That's why many local car wash owners are praying that there won't be a heavy rainy season later this year. "We need good weather and pray to God we don't get too much rain," said Furat Singh, owner of Angel's Auto Spa in Costa Mesa. And if it does rain, when it rains is key. "If it rains Friday or Saturday -- the really busy time -- it really impacts the business, because large percentage of the business is done on weekends," said Leon Saitowitz, a carwash broker with Allied Brokers of Newport Beach.

A black helicopter circled closer and closer to the schoolyard at St. Joachim Catholic School in Costa Mesa on Tuesday, prepping to unload its cargo of 2,305 golf balls. Minutes earlier, a group of students had cheered as Elizabeth McNulty showed them a photo of the coastline, proving the aircraft was on its way. "Over Laguna," she said, reading a text from her phone. And then the chopper was there, circling in slowly to hover about 75 feet from the ground. Kids cheered again as a passenger waved and began dumping out three orange tubs full of numbered golf balls.

The weather forecast was cloudy, with a chance of golf balls - and it didn't disappoint. About 2,000 golf balls rained down on Mariners Christian School's athletic field just after noon Friday. "I thought it was pretty awesome and really cool," said third-grader Gabriella Creamer, 9. The Costa Mesa private school hosted its inaugural Helicopter Golf Ball Drop to raise money for student scholarships. Students sold more 2,000 balls at $10 each to raise about $20,000 for Mariners families in need of support, said Carolyn Johnson, advancement specialist.

Though the rivalry could never be completely dampened, rain washed out the schedule opener of a three-game Big West Conference baseball series between UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton on Friday night.

The second game, scheduled for approximately 4:30 p.m. will honor tickets for Friday's game. The park will be cleared after Saturday's first game, so separate admissions will be charged.

The players at the Toshiba Classic will most likely face big-time challenges with rain expected Saturday. The weather also figures to be a challenge for the volunteers at Newport Beach Country Club. Brian Horn, the Toshiba Classic volunteer chairman, said there are close to 800 volunteers at this year's Toshiba. The challenge for them will be scheduling. If there are delays on Saturday that could ruin plans for many of the volunteers, who are assigned a set amount of hours throughout the day. "We can't stress about what we can't control," Horn said of the rain.

CORONA DEL MAR - It has never rained on the Corona del Mar All-American Invitational Tournament. CdM boys' tennis coach Brian Ricker said Tim Mang, the longtime CdM coach and All-American Tournament director, likes to brag about that fact. Mother Nature doesn't appear so kind for the 13th year of the two-day tournament. Rain is expected Saturday, so Mang moved up CdM's first-round match against Sage Hill. The two schools started the prestigious tournament Thursday, a day early.

Brad Faxon already has one win on the Champions Tour, but you could say he's still finding his way. Faxon, an eight-time PGA Tour winner who turned 50 seven months ago, had a troublesome start to his Toshiba Classic debut Wednesday. He showed up to Newport Beach Golf Course to play in the pro-am. One problem, the Toshiba is at Newport Beach Country Club. Not a big deal. He made it to NBCC for an interview with media and then out for his afternoon of pro-am. No harm. It goes in sync to how Faxon feels on the Champions Tour.
