The cold winter 3 years ago was apparently due to the jet stream being deflected south by very strong HP near the Azores? The lack of SW airflow allowed colder air normally held back by it to penetrate south giving us cold temps and great snowfalls. Be nice to get another winter like it.
As others have said the gulf and jetstream are two totally different things though.
We had a newborn to deal with and any free time I had I was heading for the hills! I do remember getting snowed on while surfing a dawnie that winter and getting changed in freezing cold a few times. Roberdy might remember better.
