Today in history

One this day in 1944, Paris is liberated by the French 2nd Armored Division and the U.S. 4th Infantry Division.

German resistance was light, and General Dietrich von Choltitz, commander of the German garrison, defied an order by Adolf Hitler to blow up Paris' landmarks and burn the city to the ground before its liberation.

Here’s the rest of the story:


Today — A cool break... partly cloudy in the morning then becoming mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s.

Tonight — Baby, it’s cool outside...lows in the lower to mid 50s.
