The team at Berkeleyside wants to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We are planning to take the next few days off to be with family and to return, refreshed and with new stories, on Monday.

We leave you with some photos taken today by Berkeley photographers, who together with all of us are thankful for the rain.

Happy Thanksgiving from Frances, Sarah, Lance, Colleen, Natalie, Emilie and Tracey.
