Powerball Jackpot Win Creates Endless Possibilities

Powerball jackpot increases to $500 million

$500 million.

That’s what’s up for grabs in tomorrow night’s Powerball lottery drawing, the second largest in U.S. history.

With odds of winning around 175 million to 1, obviously the best part about playing the lottery is fantasizing about how you’d spend the cash.

Considering what we went through a month ago, that windfall might come with a side of guilt.

Say you took the cash option, then after taxes you’d probably wind up with around $212 million.

Say whaaaaat?!?

What do you do with that much cash? (Oh the shoes. The SHOES!)

Obviously everyone around here thinks about helping out Sandy victims.

Do you give it all to victims? A million? 10? And who do you give it to? A million bucks doesn’t go very far when you have to spread it to thousands of people…

I’ve certainly learned post-Sandy that stuff is not nearly as important as I used to feel it was (though a no-budget shopping spree might be fun…)

I’d like to think I’d pay off my student loan, my car, and help my family out with any bills, donate about 5-10 million to various charities I’ve worked with, then plan fabulous vacations for the rest of my life.

It’s certainly nice to think about. Forget rain and snow…Hawaii here I come!
