Caught Up in the Whirlwind

The unofficial motto of the United States Postal Service (USPS) boils down to this: Nothing can keep a good postal worker down. Well, almost nothing. Postal workers are human after all and like any human, they fall prey to illness, injury, and let’s not forget human error. Deliveries can and do get delayed if Mother Nature doesn’t play nice.

Lotteries are immune to the things that plague humans. Powerball laughs in the face of sick days, and along with its “siblings” Lotto Texas and Mega Millions, keeps on ticking in the face of floods and power outages. Lotteries, see, are often the ones stirring up the trouble, what with Pattern streaks, playbacks, and so forth. While these were absent July 21, 2021, there was a Pattern encore, an important steppingstone in the creation of said Pattern streaks. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots climb to $8.25 million and $174 million.
