General Equation for Time Remaining until Halloween Lights Out

Had this inspiration earlier:

After fleshing it out a bit, I present this equation for the Time Remaining until Halloween Lights Out:

Cr = Candy remaining
Cd = Amount of leftover candy desired
Tf = Time you’ll shut down, regardless
Tc = Current Time
Vn = Time of the last trick-or-treater
Vn-1 = Time of the trick-or-treater before that

The zeroes of the equation are in all the right places; however, some constants may need to be scattered around in order to make a really practical application.

Quoth Geof:

All it needs now is a snappy name.
