Woman’s Luck Changes w/House Win

An Ephrata woman's luck has turned around for the better.  On Wednesday she won a brand new $250,000 home in the North Idaho College Really Big Raffle drawing. Before her number was picked, her home was burglarized earlier this month and her car stolen.  The month wasn't going well for 72-year-old Donna Wallar. "They dumped boxes, and dumped all my jewelry boxes, dump everything that they could find to dump," said Wallar. Wallar said she walked into her home on the 4th of July weekend to discover it had been ransacked.  The thief was still on her property/KREM. More here.

Question: How would you describe your run of luck of late?
