Be careful what you wish for

Coming up on Good Morning East Texas...

A Tennessee woman won millions in a Powerball jackpot, and now she is warning others to be careful what you wish for. She says she is both blessed...and cursed. We'll explain why someone would complain about striking it rich.

And, most of us are lucky enough to have clean water available to us at the touch of a button, or turn of the faucet. It's one of those things that we as Americans take for granted, but one East Texas college student wants us to think about it just a little more. Our Good Morning East Texas' Lauren Callahan will be live in the studio to introduce us to TJC student Brian Lamb and his new company, called Replenish.

Plus, Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan on May 1, 2011. It's easily the biggest foreign policy victory for the Obama Administration to date, and brought a sense of closure to the events of 9/11. SLIDESHOW: The killing of Osama bin Laden.

Good Morning East Texas Meteorologist Grant Dade tells us...

Another warm and dry day is expected for the majority of East Texas.  The one exception may be across our extreme southeastern counties where an isolated storm or two could develop this afternoon.  The key word in that statement is could.  It looks as though most of us will remain dry.  Highs this afternoon will reach the upper 80s.  Tonight will be partly cloudy and warm with lows only dropping into the upper 60s.  For your Wednesday we will see partly cloudy and warm temperatures again.  Highs will be in the upper 80s.  Your weekend forecast is coming up on Good Morning East Texas.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut.
