The Colonist arrival was bumpy and hard because there were storms. When they arrived to Roanoke they had to start setting up shelter and they had to start cooking so they did not have to risk the rain when they are about to cook. All so they should start cooking right away so they animals don't come and invade their food.
After one month they started to run out of food and the weather became colder. So the Colonist had to risk freezing and they had to risk snow and no food. Until John White decides to leave Roanoke and come back with more food for everyone.
After John White leaves the Colonist start to run our of food. The weather starts to become colder and the animals start to hibernate. Which is better for the colonist because the bears and everything else won't go after them.
