BERKLEY, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan residents are stocking up in preparation for the harshest winter conditions in 20 years, with up to 15 inches of snow forecast for parts of the state followed by temperatures diving as low as minus 15.

At least one death is being blamed on the snow. The Huron Daily Tribune says 27-year-old Branden Hewitt of Owendale hit a snowdrift and struck another vehicle Saturday in Huron County.

At a CVS in Berkley, 46-year-old Kim Tarnopol of nearby Huntington Woods says her children are rooting for a snow day Monday.

She says she sent her husband out the night before to make sure they don't run out of groceries, especially coffee.

The National Weather Service says 8.3 inches of snow had fallen at Otisville by 2:20 p.m. Sunday.
