Can a trough become semi permanent? or a Ridge?

It seems like the Eastern US for the past two years is always getting hammered while the West is quiet. What are the long terms implications of something like this being semi permanent? Could we see a large shift in the seasons as the cold last longer and longer?

The short answer is no...

The driver of what is currently happening is Pacific Ocean temps. Things will change again, but probably not for another full year or so, looks like the east coast may have another cold winter.
