NORWALK - A chance at millions is putting a smile on the faces of some residents across southwestern Connecticut, especially after dealing with this week's blizzard.

The Mega Millions jackpot drawing on Friday is up to an estimated $237 million after there were no winners Tuesday. For those who opt for the lump sum, they will walk away with $103 million after taxes.

One resident said he would spend the money on family and put some in investments, while other residents said they would take a trip.

According to the Mega Millions website, the odds of snagging the jackpot are 1 in 175 million.
