Just in case, keep an extra amount of gasoline and anti-freeze in the car.

Packing for the winter move requires special approach. Use more waterproof materials such as plastic bags, plastic or bubble wrap. Also, keep the winter clothes somewhere near you, so you can use it any moment during San Diego moving or moving to some other places. Be careful while packing electronic devices, protect them from the cold as much as possible.
