Despite the perks, Cocoa is really hot in the summer.
I went to college up north and hated the frigid winter seasons and the ice and snow that made driving particularly dangerous at times. If you weren’t careful, you could inadvertently walk onto a patch of ice on a sidewalk, slip, fall, and suffer a serious bone fracture. This happened to my best friend’s mother during our last year of college, and after several surgeries she was finally on her feet again. I had the chance to stay in that state for graduate school, but I instead sought to move further southward where average temperatures are much warmer. It’s not hard to please me and I would have been satisfied moving to inland Georgia, but I was lucky enough to find a graduate school program in Cocoa, Florida. It’s cool living so close to both the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and the Kennedy Space Center. My classes in elementary school took field trips to both space stations and I was amazed looking at the rockets and space shuttles. Despite the perks, Cocoa is really hot in the summer. I can only survive in 100 degree weather if I have a good air conditioner running at all times. I can’t spend all of my days out at Cocoa Beach even if I had the place to myself. We found a good HVAC supplier in Cocoa West for our initial air conditioner installation and we have been using this company since. It was great having the opportunity to buy an annual HVAC maintenance contract at a reduced rate because of my new-customer status with the company.
