Happy Birthday, Michigan!

Michigan was admitted to the Union on Jan. 26, 1837, becoming the 26th state. DTE Energy is marking the occasion with a list of 180 reasons to love the Great Lakes State. The company is encouraging people to share their own reasons on Twitter with the hashtag #Mich180. Here’s a link to the list.
