Change of Seasons, Change of Patterns

Seasons have a set time when they appear and a set time when they leave. They cycle through the year, and even when one season “intrudes” on another, they generally respect each other.

Lotteries are much less cordial. Patterns and wild plays come and go as they please. An occasional Pattern streak may occur, but the order of things is “madness”.

Wednesday night saw one Pattern stick by its lottery and another went for something different. Both choices sent the jackpots upward. Lotto Texas settled into a nice $8.5 million and Powerball reached the $100 million benchmark.
