Melting snow that turns into water is VITAL!
I could guess, many have never thought of snow turning into water as being essential. We have a more pessimistic outlook when it comes to the cold weather and falling snow. Personally, it is one of my favorite seasons. I know, I get the odd looks when I mention that fact.
Snowmelt is equally as important as rain. This liquid that runs into oceans, lakes, and streams help to supply freshwater to all of us, as well as animals and plants. Think of it as a replenishing process. Like rain it provides the ground with new life to aid in the process of new growth. Of course, as with all things, an excess of water from this precipitation could cause flood water as well. An even balance is what we always hope for. As we have learned year after year, mother nature always seems to have an unknown plan.
Today I prefer to share with you the positive important role that water from melting snow provides. In the hope that we all can understand that without the cold months and the white fluffy stuff that falls from the sky we wouldn’t have enough of the fluid we need to assist us in maintaining a healthy environment.
