A Virginia woman whose husband is a furloughed federal government worker has received a prize at what seems to be the perfect time.
Carrie Walls of Ashburn, Virginia, won the Virginia Lottery's Ford Expedition Plus $100K promotion.
Her winning ticket was drawn Dec. 4, and she picked up her prizes this past Friday.
Just as the promotion said, Walls won a new Ford Expedition SUV as well as $100,000.
Walls said the money is timely as her husband has been furloughed by the partial government shutdown for three weeks and counting.
She said she'll use part of the money to take the family to Disney World.
