Brooks Range Snow Drought
It isn't just Fairbanks-land that's suffering from a dearth of snow. Here's a lovely morning photo (courtesy of the FAA) from Arctic Village in the eastern Brooks Range. Frosty, but snowfree, at valley elevation (about 2000' MSL). There are no long term stats for this part of the world, but my sense is that it very unusual to go into mid-October without a snow cover at Arctic Village.
