JACKSON, Mich. (AP) -- The sky is bright across a chilly Michigan as utility crews work to restore power to the last of at least 225,000 electricity customers blacked out when the Midwest's first snowstorm of the season pushed across the state.

The blustery storm dumped as much as 18 inches of snow on northern Michigan Thursday and Friday.

In southeastern Michigan, the St. Clair County sheriff's department says a 71-year-old man was killed in a head-on crash Friday night on snowy Michigan 25 in Burtchville Township.

CMS Energy Corp. says 2,500 of its 170,000 affected customers remained powerless at 11:30 a.m. Sunday. DTE Energy Co. says it's restored service to the 55,000 users who lost power.

Midday temperatures Sunday range from the upper teens in the North to the mid-30s in the South.
