Today in history

On this day in 1775, the U.S. postal system was established by the Second Continental Congress, with Benjamin Franklin as its first postmaster general.

Franklin (1706-1790) put in place the foundation for many aspects of today’s mail system.

Here’s the rest of the story:


Today — Slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s.

Tonight — Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the lower to mid 60s.
