Well that wasn't a bad afternoon storm, had some hail, powerlines got struck several times and someone down at the local park got struck or frightened and there had to be an ambulance called. The "low" in the satellite image above is just a tropical low dissipating as it comes from the west coast.

Yeah, shame mother earth does not care that we have chosen where to live much based on previous weather patterns. And that completely removing some patterns, reversing others, and creating some new ones, can have a profound impact on our daily lives.

I wonder what the next winter will be like.

Fortunately we won't be getting another ice age for some time. At least 25-100 thousand years away (at most 50,000 years if you don't count for the fact that we have dumped tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, 7x more than the last PETM event). That doesn't mean however that the closing of the gulf stream wont change things in the north in the short term causing a mini ice age in the short term.

It will get extremely cold for the next decade for the northern hemisphere and then once all of that ice being dumped into the oceans is absorbed it will get really hot.

From PBS:

Unfortunately our own addition of CO2 into the atmosphere means that we are going to be experiencing extremely hot weather, eventually.

Dumping tons of CO2 into the atmosphere was the right thing to do during an ice age unfortunately we are not yet in another ice age, that is 25-100,000 years away. So we had the right idea but the wrong timing. Our second human made PETM event was far too early and far too severe.

What does this mean? It means that we are in for extreme hot weather events like that on Venus (But not as extreme), what we are experiencing right now is merely the north and south poles melting and temporarily cooling the planet.

Once those permafrosts start to melt however its going to get even worse and even more extreme.

The right thing to be doing right now is to be preparing yourself and your family for extremely cold and wet weather events occurring very rapidly and moving towards more new evolving temperate climates away from the coastlines (with lots of humidity). But in a few decades those temperate climates will become too hot and you will have to move back to colder regions.

This cold and wet weather events that we are all experiencing is temporary. I would be staying where you are right now (Maybe even moving to warmer regions) and in say 30-50 years time moving North for Northern Hemisphere people and South for me.

That is my take on it regarding information taking from those two youtube videos that I've posted.
