Rain in winter


2 people planting trees


It's cold, it's freezing. It's hot and raining. We're in the middle of winter, and yet waterproof boots are often more appropriate than snow boots. It's a fact of life in my little Bromont paradise that it rains in winter. Although I'm quite far south in my province, it's not at all normal for this to be the case. Where are the winters of my youth, when we were buried under tons of snow?

 

Unfavorable conditions

While it may be pleasant not to have to shovel snow, you know that nature and its inhabitants suffer from these abnormal conditions, which are unfortunately becoming the norm. I'm sorry not to freeze my nose or de-ice my car, when it's the whole environment that suffers from this warming.

 

Ice formation

Rain in winter can lead to the formation of black ice, a layer of ice that covers surfaces. This makes travel difficult for animals and us alike, and can cause damage to trees, infrastructure and crops, including fruit trees and maples. What would I do without its delectable sweet syrup?

 
Alteration of natural habitats

Winter rain can cause snow to melt rapidly, altering the natural habitats of animals that depend on snow for protection and insulation. Some animals, such as small mammals, may find it difficult to move around or find suitable shelter. As the snow thaws, many small animals come out of hibernation, unable to find food as they are out of season.

 

Impact on wildlife

Birds, for example, may have difficulty finding food when rain freezes to the ground. Plants that serve as food sources may be covered in ice, making access difficult for herbivorous animals. Fortunately, on rare occasions, even the trunks of trees may be covered in ice, as these are valuable larders or living quarters for various species of animal or bird.

 

Increased risk of flooding

Winter rainfall can increase the risk of flooding, with negative consequences for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Flooding can disrupt habitats, displace wildlife and damage breeding grounds. As you can see, the damage goes far beyond flooded basements.

 

How can we alleviate the situation?

 

By planting trees!

Planting trees is indeed a powerful strategy for mitigating climate change by absorbing CO2, regulating temperatures, preserving biodiversity and providing many other essential ecological benefits. It's a tangible action that individuals, communities and governments can take to help combat climate change. That's why I've made it my life's mission to multiply art and life.

 

You too can make a positive impact on nature by purchasing a reproduction of a work of art on acrylic or white aluminium. Not only do they beautify your home, but they also allow you to plant 2 trees that will help regulate the climate and return the seasons to normal. It's better to shovel than to see flora and fauna suffer the negative effects of human activity.
