This winter, Michigan definitely had an identity crisis. We've been experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures all season - until now, that is. This morning the temperature was a frigid 8 degrees. Who knows if the cold is here to stay, but now is a good time to stock up on winter weather essentials. Why? Well, online and brick-and-mortar retailers have left fall/winter behind and moved on to resort, with the spring collections soon to follow. That means that thanks to the frenetic pace of the fashion industry, you can score great deals on everything from coats and scarves to boots and gloves.
