A southeast Michigan couple was checking for television updates on the overnight snow storm that socked Michigan this week when they got hit by a different wallop: They and their co-workers had won half of a $93 million Mega Millions lottery prize.
Jose and Charlene Person told reporters Friday they began singing "We're in the Money" Wednesday morning after rechecking the numbers and confirming they'd won.
They're among 13 current and retired postal workers who plan to split the Mega Millions prize. The PI Gold Lottery Club has chosen to take it in one lump sum of $29 million less taxes.
The two 48-year-olds work at the Romulus priority mail processing center and plan to return to work Monday. The other winning ticket for Tuesday's drawing was sold in Indiana.
