You know how they always say lightning doesn’t strike in the same place, and you can’t win the lottery twice in one week? Okay, fine, I made that second one up–plus, it turns out to be untrue, as Dundalk resident Michelle Fowler could testify.

On March 22, Fowler stopped at the BP station on Wise Avenue to buy $50 worth of lottery tickets for herself and her husband. She used her husband’s lucky quarter to reveal the first scratch-off was worth $100,000.
