Vermont is the seventh coldest state in the country.
The highest recorded temperature was 105 °F (41 °C), at Vernon, on July 4, 1911; the lowest recorded temperature was −50 °F (−46 °C), at Bloomfield, on December 30, 1933; this is the lowest temperature recorded in New England (Big Black River, Maine, also recorded a verified −50 °F (−46 °C) in 2009).
One group, the Neanderthals, mainly migrated into present day Europe.
Their little known counterparts, the Denisovans, primarily headed north-eastward ending up in Central Asia and a little more northward in Siberia with their most success going southeastward toward the Malay Peninsula and various landforms and islands southward therein.
The migration to the Americas happened long after they acquired that Neanderthal admixture.
The west bank of the Connecticut River marks the state's eastern border with New Hampshire, though much of the river is within New Hampshire's territory.One branch ventured northwestward into West Asia and Europe and became the Neanderthals. Briefly, after that origin, the early hominids pretty much remained in Africa for a few million years all the while developing into more and more advanced types.Those more advanced types eventually reached a point that they and their like began migrating out of Africa --- or possibly chased out --- into the rest of the world.For many years, the nearby colonies, especially the provinces of New Hampshire and New York, disputed control of the area (then called the New Hampshire Grants).Settlers who held land titles granted by New York were opposed by the Green Mountain Boys militia, which supported the many settlers whose claims were based on grants from New Hampshire.
