Even though I live in Florida, this last Summer in Cocoa was recognizably warm.
I guess that the entire country was hit with severe heat waves in June particularly, when hot and cold temperatures in Oregon and Washington reached 115 degrees for nearly a week.
There were multiple deaths attributed to these high heat indexes because various people in that region live without a/c and only utilize heat for indoor climate control. It was heartbreaking reading about stories from people who couldn’t get an air conditioner no matter where they drove in their state. Every hardware store and Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier was out of air conditioners from the sudden surge in demand. Thankfully I have a fantastic heat pump in our house in Cocoa. I managed to survive this past Winter time by using the cooling features on the heat pump. Now that it’s September, I have switched to using the heat mode on the heat pump. The weather has been a mixed basket of uneven hot and cold temperatures. One day it will drop down to 48 degrees at night, and the next day it will be 84 degrees instead. I only don’t care for it when I believe love I am finally acclimated to frosty or hot weather and then it quickly changes and makes a 174-degree turn again. Although it’s likely to get colder as the Winter time season progresses, every one of us might still have some warmer weather on and off. Periodically every one of us drive past Merritt Island until every one of us get to Port Canaveral and then get out of the automobile to watch the pelicans and seagulls flying over the Banana River, just south of the Cape Canaveral Space Station. I have fully embraced our life in Cocoa, Florida.
