I got so excited when I read this news...  I bought a Powerball ticket in New Jersey at a convenience store...

But alas, I was not the $1 million dollar winner...

Sigh.

But some lucky person that bought a ticket at a Monmouth County convenience store is $1 million richer today!

Congrats!

Wednesday's Powerball drawing is now worth $255 million.  The cash option is $154.4 million.

Yep, I'll take that.
