The colony's climate would have been similar to the current climate, though a little colder due to the Little Ice Age for part of the colonial period. Connecticut has a humid continental climate (more of a humid subtropical climate on the coast) with relatively cold winters and pretty warm and humid summers. Average snowfall is about 25 - 30 inches on the coast and 40-50 well inland and in the hills.
It is a motherless calf. Origin unknown.
