What would you do with $540 million?

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

How many tickets did you buy? Are you in a pool with a bunch of other people or are you going solo? How many new friends do you think you'd have if you won all that money? You know what I'm talking about. The Mega Millions jackpot is up to more than $500 million. A half-billion dollars people! What would you do with it? What would you look forward to not having to do? Just one more question, can I get in on your pool too? We'll be out LIVE seeing if anybody is up  this early buying those tickets. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before heading out today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
