The snow is still flying in spots around the Great Lakes in New York State. The bitter cold is expected to move on and the skies will clear this week. But for some, it can't get here soon enough after this past weekend's blast of snow. The official start to winter is still a month away but you wouldn't know it around Buffalo.

But there are some things to look forward to this week around The Empire State. Thanksgiving week is here and among the travel plans you may have, you may want to make plans to get a ticket for the next Mega Millions drawing. Tuesday night's Mega Millions will payout an estimated $259 million with a cash option of $131.4 million!

The lottery fever was intense a couple of weeks ago as the Powerball jackpot soared to record amounts! Get your ticket and start dreaming. Tuesday is 11-22-22. Perhaps that is the lucky day that you have been waiting for. At the very least, it is a start for a great combination of numbers for your tickets.
