GREENSBORO, N.C. — Powerball mania is hitting the Piedmont Triad early Wednesday morning ahead of the half-billion dollar jackpot drawing.

James Williams said he arrived at his Shell gas station on South Regional Road at 3:15 a.m. to prep for the store’s 6 a.m. opening and the jackpot hopefuls he anticipates.

By 6:20 a.m., he’d sold more than a $100 in tickets.
