Mt. Drum with very little snow

I've lived in Alaska over 20 years and my wife was born here before it was a state, and this is the first time that Mt. Drum has had bare rock showing that either of us remember. It is scary how much snow and ice that has melted off of the mountains here in Alaska. We were down in Tok area on Sunday and Monday and there was no snow in the mountains at all. Usually by mid September, the mountain tops are all white. We left on Monday and on Tuesday, they did get a significant snowfall that covered the mountains. A month later than normal, better than not getting snow.
