A slow-moving winter storm dumped up to 11 inches in western Perkins County on Friday-Saturday, Feb. 3-4, before heading toward the eastern part of the state. The strong system moved into the area early Friday morning, bringing very heavy snow to some locations which cancelled schools, postponed events and halted travel. The storm lasted until early Saturday, tapering to flurries as it moved to the east.
