One more roll and Powerball can match or beat the current highs that Death Valley is getting.

Megamillions is a good temperature for a freezer.

    I hope PB continues to roll too dvdiva. I hope PB set the cap again while MM keeps winning jackpots.

      I think the Powerball jackpot is now probably above the highs Death Valley is getting. However, there was one $800,000 Powerball/PowerPlay winner in Iowa, my own state. Hopefully it was my grandfather's ticket because he always PowerPlays his tickets (I don't PowerPlay).

        Well the current powerball jackpot is in between records.

        Record temp in US was Death Valley in 1913 (will all that global warming) and was 134 F.

        Record temp on earth was in Libya in 1922 (again with that global warming) and was 136 F.

        Hottest temp ever in a lab was set in 2006 at 3.6 billion F. You don't have to worry about a lottery getting that high unless they pull a fast one. Powerball could say it's that high but forget that the prize is now paid with Taiwan dollars not US dollars and still has an inflated annuity.

          I bet the world record was set on a Celsius thermometer (58°C, or 136.4°F).
