So, last night a very major storm rolled through town with 80 mile per hour winds, tornadoes, and other fun stuff. We never had a tornado actually touch down, but we did lose power. Today was around 106 degree heat index. Great to not be able to run the AC. Power went out around 6 pm yesterday and did not come back on until about 6 pm tonight. Just hearing the AC running makes me want to do a happy dance. In fact, I may have done just that, but I am not sharing. As for the Lucky Day it topped out at $2,000,000 and someone won it in Willowbrook Illinois about 52 minutes from Chicago. So, long and short is I did not have the winning ticket. As for MyLot I am TERRIBLY behind, but will get to work as soon as I can to catch up. How was your day going?

Except for the storm, your heat index is much like it is here. I'm sorry you were without power. I know that wasn't fun in this heat with no A/C.

That is lucky. I nearly won with all the numbers jumping by one or two.

I always say, I usually miss it by about six numbers.

Having a heat wave here in NJ with temps in the 90's. Lost power for about 3 hours earlier. No tornadoes in our neck of the woods thank goodness. 80 mph winds can be pretty scary too.

Hello Jim. Am glad to know you are fine over there. And the power interruption was too long. I cant even endure that long hours of no electricity. I just woke up and need to work my butt off.

Eek, thats a long time to be without power and no A/C would be even worse. So glad you have it back but so sad you didn't win the lotto, maybe next time huh.

$2 M so lucky.. You'll definitely catch up. My day is great I am almost nearing the pay-out limit after a month of stay here. Enjoy the rest of your day.

You must be fairly near my sister, her power just came back from that storm as well. I was looking at that on the radar last night, that system was 50 miles wide
