In rural areas the school districts use the radio stations for school cancellations and such to let parents know in those area's. I remember getting up on high snowfall days and listening to the radio for school cancellations then I would climb back in bed..lol

yes I agree ... the PR in that episode against the woman, way over the top...she can build a bomb but passes out....please most women are cooler under pressure....just think of any men when their wives are in labor.

I love how Johnny always gives his helpers if any a cut of the commission. Now a days if Johnny was on the job he would take the money and run the hell with anyone else!
