Pre-Christmas Thaw

It’s winter in Lottery Trend Country, although it doesn’t really feel like it in our neck of the woods. To think that it snowed two weeks ago! Thus the fickle nature of Houston weather. On the lottery side of things, December 20, 2017 saw a “thaw”. Lotto Texas had a Pattern encore, and then some. Powerball stayed mellow through-and-through.

The {3-2-1} Pattern couldn’t bear to be out of the spotlight for long. Right off the heels of Saturday night’s drawing, it made its 785th appearance. This time, the winning numbers were 6, 10, 11, 22, 30, and 45.
