Utility crews battle for power

Utility crews have been out in full force trying to repair the rest of those outages, but they're still facing some tough obstacles.
Consumer's Energy says 340 crews from all over the state and midwest are working to restore power.

Consumers Energy Manager Bob Gluszewski says, "We actually have crews that are going out to areas on snowmobiles and using snoeshoes because they can't get trucks through snow."
