Fast moving winter storm left about 4 to 5 inches of snow in the Hunter Creek area, a tributary of the Knik River.
Observation: The snow storm earlier today was quick, heavy, and over by 10am. After lasting about 2 hours, we only got 4-5 inches of snow out here at Hunter Creek, by the Knik Glacier. Thought we'd get more, but the storm passed through fast.
