The couple who did win, local residents of this small town with just a caution light, had purchased the ticket just 3.9 miles from my house. The ticket was purchased at Clyde's Market #70, at the aforementioned caution light intersection, where I turn to go home. They used their grandchildren's birthdays to come up with the winning numbers.
As thrilled as I am for this derserving couple, I can't help but be disappointed. It was so close I could have reached out and touched it! And like my husband pointed out, what are the odds of it ever happening here again? Guess I'll have to buy my lotto tickets somewhere else!
