Probably neither event is really due to Climate Change, however caused. They are examples of relatively short term weather extremes rather than a change in climate. In the longer run these extreme events may well become more frequent and more extreme due to to Climate Change.
There is an interesting theory that the warming of the earth could cause freshwater from the melting ice cap to disrupt the Gulf stream causing the British Isles to experience a climate more like that of Hudson Bay which is at the same latitudes and that bay freezes over in the winter!
