    Just past 8:00 AM (got lazy and slept in today :D) It's 50F w/65% RH. Gonna be sunny all day so our big yellow thermal heater in the sky will push our temps into the high 70Fs again with 78F expected. We may even hit 80F later on.

    16C maximum expected here today and windy. They call October a transitional month.

    Maybe my escape plan will come through?
    No one's won Powerball's jackpot in months. $685 million is up for grabs tonight

    Blank forms for the Powerball lottery sit in a bin at a local grocery store in January in Des Moines, Iowa.

    DES MOINES, Iowa — After 40 drawings without a big Powerball winner, maybe Monday night's 41st attempt will be different.

    Thanks to nearly four months of futility, the Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $685 million, making it the eighth largest in U.S. lottery history. No one has won the game's grand prize since June 5.

    Every drawing now sets a record, topping the previous mark of 36 drawings that ended in January 2021. The longer the game goes without a grand prize winner, the larger the payout will grow.



    The jackpot drought is by design, as the game's long odds of 292.2 million to one are intended to generate massive prizes that draw more players.

    Lottery officials are quick to note that even as no one wins the jackpot, plenty of people have won smaller prizes, including 2.8 million players in Saturday's drawing alone. Those winnings ranged from $1 million to $4.

    The $685 million promoted prize is for a winner who chooses the annuity option, paid over 29 years. Nearly all big winners take the cash option, which for Monday night's drawing is an estimated $485.5 million. Either prize option would also be subject to taxes.


    Powerball is played in 45 states plus Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.​

    A guy can dream.

    Guess I was wrong about leaving the 80Fs behind. We did hit 80F yesterday and it's expected to hit 82F today. Right now it's 56F w/46% RH at just past 9:00 AM.

    Single ticket in California takes $700 million Powerball jackpot
    By
    Zarrin Ahmed

    Oct. 5 (UPI) -- After weeks of growing into the seventh-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history, Powerball will now return to about $20 million after a single ticket in California won the $700 million pot on Monday night.

    The winning ticket was bought at a grocery store in Morro Bay in southwestern California, lottery officials said.​

    Well fudgecicles. Oh well, guess I'll keep trying. A guy like me could still be quite happy with 10M+ after taxes.
    Heck, I get mildly excited when I win $10.

    I don't know if it's a "change in season" or what because the weather hasn't changed, but I've had one Hell of a headache for the last 3 days and it's making me all sorts of cranky.

    8:45 AM. It's 56F w/63% RH. A few clouds have rolled in so it'll be partly cloudy today with a high around 78F. Still very warm but fall is in the air. I sense it.
