(Newser) – Remember the guy who hit not one but two big lotteries in Florida? A Michigan man may have one-upped him by striking it rich in separate states. Joseph Palmarchuk won a $1.35 million lottery jackpot this week in Michigan's Classic Lotto 47 game. In 2011, Palmarchuk won a $1 million lottery game in Tennessee. (He says he likes to buy tickets that retailers put aside as mistakes.) Now Palmarchuk and his wife, Phillis, plan to hunt for a condominium in a warm state to skip Michigan winters.

Don't come to Florida. We have enough northerners that screw our roads, restaurants and property values.
