As the Twin Cities recovers from the dramatic deluge last night, spare a thought today for KSTP’s Dave Dahl.

The meteorologist found himself trending on Twitter in Minneapolis for doing, well, his job by informing local viewers about the tornado and flash-flood warnings that were issued Monday evening.

Unfortunately, the warnings came during “The Bachelorette,” prompting an angry response from devoted Twin Cities fans of the ABC hit show.

“No time for severe weather interruptions during fantasy suites, I am NOT here for this Dave Dahl,” was one of the kinder tweets made about the weather guy, many of the others are too rude to share.

Judging by one tweet, the interruption by Dahl lasted roughly 11 long, purgatory-like minutes that saw viewers miss what we can only assume was the greatest scene in the history of “The Bachelorette,” at least, that’s what we assume by reading the somewhat hysterical responses.
