5:11 am
. good morning and welcome back. i'm power of 5 meteorologist somara theodore. right now on the roads, here is a look outside. you can see right up on the
5:12 am
you're looking at a rest area and, again, we have been saying it throughout the morning, a lot of semi trucks lining the side of 90 eastbound and westbound just in this area. this location here. look on the map. you will notice we're north of kurtland hills. we're seeing semis lining 90 east and westbound. one thing i want to let you know is the snow is pretty thick, so you're going to want to go slow while traversing the roads. it could cause a loss of traction and you could have issues with control. be careful out on 90. >> all right, somara, be careful out there. what that means. another powerball drawing. >> yes and the record-breaking jackpot sits at $1.5 billion grabs. the question is do you take the lump sum and walk away, or do you opt for all of the annual payment here? we sent meg shaw to one of the
5:13 am
meg, you got your ticket already, don't you? >> reporter: i already have my ticket. i have a couple of tickets. who is not fantasizing about winning the jackpot and going off to a tropical place and not having's worry in the world. let's talk about if you are tonight's lucky winner, what you should do. first thing's first, let's remember, if you win, you won't take home the entire $1.5 billion jackpot. now, it's time to decide lump sum or annuity. unfortunately, there is no right answer. having that much money quickly, of course, in a lump sum, obviously a dream come true. on the other hand, a risk of blowing it all so much higher. annuity could be a better choice and this is why. the payout is larger in the end. taking the winnings in 30 and you'll end up getting over $1 billion after taxes. and that is just opposed to 900
5:14 am
we're going to win here if you are the winner. the next drawing is tonight, 10:59. you can watch it here on newschannel 5. i'm wishing everyone the best of luck. i am sure we're going to have a winner tonight. we shall see. meg shaw, newschannel 5. >> thank you, meg. >> and time now, 5:15. president obama kicks off the post state of the union address tour today. he will make stops in nebraska and louisiana to highlight some of the progress made during the seven years in office. it bears the message in the final state of the union address last night. instead of giving congress a honey do list, this speech was about inspiring us, the american people. >> i believe in change because i believe in you. the american people. and that is why i stand here as confident as i have ever been that the state of our union is strong. >> well, the president and the governor are giving the gop
5:15 am
divide between democrats and republicans. governor nicky haley said she hopes we won't fall, quote, the -- follow the angriest voices. and starting at 10 this morning, the white house will be taking your questions. it's the third annual big block of cheese day. so the title inspired by president andrew jackson -- the house in 1837. and he had a 1400-pound cheese block to feed guests. today, a little bit different. the senior white house officials cabinet members and members of congress will take your questions on social media and you can use the #big block of cheese day. they encourage you to send your best gouda cheese puns and i posted a link to the entire scheduled schedule on my faceboover a proposal that would let you register to vote online. it would be up to the state elections chief to create a process. this bill already passed by the state senate and now the house
5:16 am
and for a lot of us, we're snow this winter. >> and if you thought we had it bad, think again and look here. western new york buried under three feet of snow and this midwest to 30 below zero. >> i slid down the hill, i sled everywhere. >> you can't see across the street. >> big northeast cities like new york and boston are preparing for first snow of the season, too, but they will likely be spared this time. next week could be a different story. another storm expected this weekend and early next week. take a look at this video. this is out of buffalo here. the storm creating whiteout conditions there. you can't see anything there, really. the lake affect snow is not letting up there or here. we want to check in with tera blake and tell us what is in store for you here. >> and lake affect snow and
