Around the Bonfire with Lotto Texas and Powerball

Our portion of Lottery Trend Country is still in the grips of winter. In fact, it’s so tight that the “s” word (that’s “snow”) was mentioned in the Houston weather forecast. As exciting as it all is, we’ll have to put it to the side.  Be it rain, heat, hail, or (possible) snow, Lotto Texas and Powerball held their drawings without issue on December 6, 2017.  Lotto Texas greeted winter with a Pattern encore. Although Powerball saw no such thing, it wasn’t totally iced out of the numbers madness.
