Castle Bisset








SEPTEMBER 7, 2021

Right now, I bet you're thinking "this special day is about a tranquil weather day with neither rain nor snow". Wrong!!

Here's the real scoop on this special day: Neither Rain Nor Snow Day celebrates the opening of the first post office, the New York Post Office building on this day in 1914.

This following inscription was inscribed on the building: "Neither snow nor rain not heat nor gloom of night, stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

Here is the second misconception: A lot of people assume the inscription represents the Post Office motto. This assumption is incorrect. But, this inscription is very close to the old Pony Express rider's motto. Which leads to a third misconception: The Pony Express was not a government funded predecessor to today's Post Office. The Pony Express was a courier and message delivery service. However, it was privately owned and funded.

Now that we have the history and trivia out of the way, let's go and enjoy the day. We hope you use Neither Rain Nor Snow Day to show your appreciation to your postal delivery people, especially those who walk their routes.
