    Love the ABC7 wx site and the in-depth insight you all provide into the weather. The title of your blog post made me wonder about semantics: Why do we have cold "snaps" whereas we have heat "waves"? Why two distinct words (rather than one universal term) to describe a period of uncharacteristically hot or cold temperatures? Any insight into how the terms "snap" and "wave" came into use? Maybe a future blog topic (when you're REALLY desperate for subject matter...). :)
