Storm brings foot of snow to Anchorage area

ANCHORAGE — A winter storm has dumped about a foot of snowfall on the Anchorage area.

The National Weather Service reported Sunday that totals from the storm exceeded 12 inches in some areas. The Anchorage Daily News reports that it is the most snow the area has seen so far this season.

Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says there weren’t too many accident reports on the roadways Saturday, especially when compared to ice storms earlier this year. Ipsen suspected that maybe people were staying indoors.
