Someone in Florida has become very rich today, and has either not realized it or is too excited to move. 

Florida Lottery officials say a winning Powerball ticket for the $1.59 billion jackpot was sold at the Publix on Highway A1A in Melbourne Beach, according to the Associated Press. Two other winning tickets were sold in California and Tennessee, so the jackpot will be split among the three winners.



Just in case you want to mourn over your ticket again, the winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing were 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10. The winners' identities have not been revealed.
