America Runs on Dunkin...and Snow Days

So there was a commentator on my local paper's website that every time there was snow in the forecast, even if it was just a dusting would threaten the school district to close school.  She would argue that it was too cold for kids to be out and much too dangerous.  And if school wasn't canceled, then she would keep her kids home anyway.

I personally didn't care what she did with her kids but she seemed like one of those parents that would yell and scream and curse for the district to cancel school because it was cold and dangerous but would then take her kids out to Target or Walmart to do running around.  In one comment she made the mistake of mentioning going to Dunkin Donuts one morning when school was canceled basically creating a running joke all her own.  She has quit posting because she could barely dish it out and she definitely couldn't take it but the Dunkin Donuts jokes continue every time there are threats of snow.
