It's the last weekend before we're all consumed by Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the true beginning of the holiday season, so take one final moment of calm to look back at this past week in photos.
Beachgoers in Nicaragua banded together last weekend to try to save a whale that had become stranded on Popoyo Beach along the country's southern coast. The whale, believed to be a humpback, was reportedly about 60 feet long. Nicaraguans and tourists attempted to push the giant mammal back into the ocean for several hours, until sunset forced them to unfortunately abandon their efforts. The next day arrangements were made to respectfully bury the animal where it lay on the beach.
Intense winter weather around the world also made headlines this week. Unbelievable photos came out of western New York state, as more than 7 feet of snow piled up in the Buffalo area and dozens of miles of Interstate 90 were shut down. A similar wintry scene occurred in southern Germany, while the country's northern city of Hannover still looked and felt like autumn. In California, heavy rain fell down on the Thursday Night Football game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders, and Pavlof, Alaska's most active volcano, erupted once again over the weekend.
Once you've eaten your turkey and finished your shopping, make sure to check back next week for our selection of the best photos from the next seven days.
