Each winter in Michigan, the question we all ask ourselves is: How cold will it get this year?
For most, the question is simple enough – check the Farmer’s Almanac, tune into the weather forecast, ask a few friends or co-workers what they’ve heard. And, if "colder" is the reply, we may decide to don that fluffy wool sweater, turn up the thermostat, make a pot of soup, or throw a log on the fireplace at home.
Temperatures plunged across the Midwest this week, and if the bitter cold isn't bad enough, energy costs are rising. Bigger bills are expected to show up in January and already, 90,000 Consumer Energy customers are behind on their heating bill payments.
So Newschannel 3's Rachel Glaser went searching for ways to rein in those heating bills.
