Good evening from Click2Houston.com.
Monday started another work week.
It’s probably an abbreviated one for a lot of you, since Independence Day is Thursday. Today was also National Postal Worker Day, and goodness knows these men and women need a pat on the back. They’re out in this summer weather to make sure we get our mail. So, thanks to all our postal workers!
Let’s wrap up your day with a check on the forecast.
