      One week after dropping the gloves in a ridiculous showing of interstate rivalry and public outcry, the tourism boards of Michigan and Wisconsin announced Tuesday they have decided to shake hands.

      Which is the real Mitten State? Doesn TMt matter now, they say.

      Instead, it TMs all about the Mitten Love as Pure Michigan and Travel Wisconsin team up for the Great Lakes Mitten Campaign, which is encouraging Michiganders and folks from Wisconsin to donate new or gently used warm mittens and clothing to those in need.

      Earlier, Michiganders had expressed (at least mock) outrage and created Don TMt Mess with the Mitten apparel after Wisconsin TMs tourism department started using an image of the Cheese State wearing a mitten.

      Turns out, mittens come in pairs.

      Do you agree with this so-called mitten truce? Are you still amazed this was an issue in the first place? Sound off below and on our WNWO Facebook page!
