Meteorologist Dave Anderson had to go into work before he could look at the radar and gather data from all his other weather instruments about the storm that wrought havoc in the Northland last week ...

That's because he, like so many other families, lost power when the storm blew through around 3:30am Thursday morning.

And although a drive through affected neighborhoods like Dave's may tell you everything you want to know about the storm ... meteorologically speaking, it's really interesting.
