National Neither Snow Nor Rain Day is commemorated on September 7th for the opening of the New York Post Office on this day in 1914. An inscription on The James A. Farley Building – the central post office building in New York City – reads: “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
James A. Farley served as Postmaster General from 1933-1940, through the Great Depression, and under him, the Post Office was transformed into a sustainable and profitable revenue stream for the United States government.
On this day, praise and thank your local postal worker for always delivering their rounds no matter if there’s snow nor rain outside.
