It is hard to generalize. With the circumpolar vortex ( https://www.noaa.gov/multimedia/infographic/science-behind-polar-vortex-you-might-want-to-put-on-sweater ) completely destabilized, there will be wild swings and what used to be weather "patterns" might not be very predictable.

Living in the Southeast, traveling between East Tennessee and North Georgia this year, I saw a very warm March followed by a very cool April for example, and the summer has been generally "hot" but not record-breakingly so. We have not seen 100F/38C in either Atlanta or Knoxville this summer (although it got very close), but I understand that those temperatures were recorded above the Arctic Circle for the first time. Wow.

One of the biggest consequences may be to plant and animal species that have been "marching" northward for decades to take advantage of (or escape from) global warming. We would all be glad to see mosquitos and termites killed off, but many valuable plants may not make it.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

It’s been consistently 30 degrees and more over here in Germany, and I haven’t met one person who didn’t complain about it. I personally cannot stand warm weather, and anything above 21 degrees or so makes me uncomfortable. And on top this warm weather prevents me from wearing my suits and ties, which is what I usually like to wear. I’m afraid I would die if I did that, and my shirts would have to go to the dry cleaner after wearing them for a day.

I am most happy around 18 degrees with low humidity and a steady wind going, rain I don’t mind either except for it ruins nice shoes and soils my slacks. Winter is my favorite season. If this winter will be super cold, I will be a very happy man. I complain about every season, but never a proper winter.

The only winter I complain about is one that is not cold. The last winter we had was more like a prolonged autumn, it never froze, no snow and it never got ablow 0 degrees. Hated it.

Worst?  Surely you just grab a nice coat and some skis and call it good, that's what I'd do if we had proper winters.  Here if there are more than a couple of inches of snow planes are grounded, main roads reduced to a single lane, schools and workplaces closed... basically a national emergency is called.  It's pathetic.

Well, I'm not sure what you are referring to. A super cold winter will probably affect everything, I think. But if you are wondering what it does to us humans specifically, aside from the obvious discomfort when you don't dress well and go outside, there is the issue of catching colds more often. Another impact of cold weather is the toll it takes on indoor air. Humidity levels are known to drop severely when winter comes, this is generally valid for all areas that have winter. So you will feel your lips cracking and throat dry more than you did in the past years. I've seen about two or three harsh winters in the past years, and each time I was mostly cold, until a friend opened up my eyes about humidifiers. Put one in the bedroom I think about 5 years ago, only use it when it gets cold, and I'm in the clear. If you were wondering about the health impacts of cold weather, this is it pretty much - chances of hypothermia, predisposition to colds because the immune system isn't as efficient and germs and bacteria are more likely to attack successfully, and humidity loss indoors that doesn't help your case against the flu.

That sucks. I don't live far enough north to have experienced a ton of them myself, but I do remember getting at least three days in a row off around 9th grade because of snow along with a few other times I don't distinctly remember. I actually got a snow day from work earlier this year pre-covid, which had never happened before. Of course, there was also the ice storm of December 2007 that ended the Fall semester of college early IIRC because the ground was 100% tree limbs. I can't remember if the sleet storm in January 2007 caused anything to be canceled.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.

favorite thing about cold winters, trying to drive my car on snow, it is not a fast car so i can never "drift" otherwise :) and where i live everyone is scared of snow more than the corona so no one on the roads

Generally, when it's cold, you freeze.

I lived in the Atlanta, Georgia, area for the past few decades and my recollection is that while there have been various colder-than-usual spells, it has generally been warmer in the winter, particularly since the turn of the century.

With the circumpolar vortex now destabilized, bizarre events will only continue to become more common.
