No one should be upset because no one picked the correct numbers to win the large Powerball jackpot last night. It didn't stop people from walking up to the lottery outlets to buy a chance at a multi-million dollar lottery drawing.  As it was, the $360 million jackpot was the third largest.  Now that number grows to an estimated $475 million for Saturday night's drawing.

The winning numbers drawn were 2, 11 ,26 ,34, 41 and a Power Ball of 32.

Powerball in West Virginia helps to support education.
