The drawing for one of the highest lottery prizes ever will happen in just a few hours. The Powerball jackpot is now up to $550 million and while the odds of winning the money aren't good many people still want at least a chance.

As you can imagine, ticket sales are soaring across the country and right here in Grand Forks. Some good news for ticket holders -- You are more likely to hit the jackpot tonight than to have your house hit by a meteor. The drawing will be at 9:59 central time tonight.
