English: Punctuation

That morning my family and I were sitting in our car, ready to make a trip into town.

In the previous sentence, does there need to be a comma after "That morning?" I think there does but I'm not entirely sure.

  1. A comma is not needed. It's such a short phrase, that we don't need to set it off with a comma.

  2. Ok, thank you.
