Lottery Coinky-dink

Those of you in states with the PowerBall drawing may have already heard about this, but this week's drawing was a big one with lots of media coverage and two people won on New Year's Eve. One of the winning tickets was sold in York County, Pennsylvania, where I live, but alas, I was not the winner. Stories surrounding the chances of winning the lottery are always interesting, but this one was even more so by the fact that the second winning ticket was also sold in York County - York County, South Carolina, that is. What are the chances?
