15–20 years ago I would say that a regular stamped envelope would take about 3 days from California to most areas of Texas.
These days the USPS has changed and become more unreliable.
It might reach Dallas in 3 days, but it might also take 4 or more…and all bets are off if there is any extreme weather along the route.

As a general rule, it takes 2–5 days to mail something inside the United States, and of that it generally takes 2–3 days within the same state. Many things can affect this however. I have seen mail delivered the next day within the same state and also seen it take 7 days to get across two states.

As little as 2 days, average 2 or 3 days for first class. The USPS service estimate is 1 to 2 days, but the best speed assumes a “best case” scenario: mailed early in the day, Monday through Wednesday, and barcode-able, automation-friendly letters and packages.

It literally means that…your package IS ON A TRUCK AND IN TRANSIT from one location to another. If it reaches your local PO, then they will scan it and update it to “out for delivery” and you can expect it that day.
