  • Symbol possible vote.svg All of your sources are webpages that are marked as being copyrighted by their webmasters. As far as I can tell, they're self-published sources by people who aren't "established expert[s] on the topic of the article whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable third-party publications", to quote WP:SPS. Either you need to improve the sourcing or you need to show me why I'm wrong — if I'm wrong, please explain why, and I'll not complain. Nyttend (talk) 03:49, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
That seems to be all I can find. Google Books doesn't pick up anything, HighBeam only picks up information on the snow in 1998.. Thine Antique Pen 10:21, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
In that case, I don't see how we can put this on DYK, since reliable sources are essential for anything there. Nyttend (talk) 21:53, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
