How does precipitation affect humans?
Question Date: 2015-12-09
Answer 1:

Precipitation influences people the most by giving us water for our plants and our crops. When it's cold enough that the precipitation is snow we also get fun things like skiing and snow-sledding (and also problems with traffic and driving).


Answer 2:

Precipitation affects our agriculture and is the source of most of our drinking water. We could not exist without it.
