The awesome photo, taken in Alberta, Canada on Friday, shows Cecilia Wessels’ husband, Theunis nonchalantly mowing the lawn as the tornado passes by their home in Three Hills.
Wessels said she only took the picture to show the tornado to her parents in South Africa, and never expected the social media storm that followed. She added that cutting the grass had been on her husband’s to-do list for a while, and once he started, he wanted to finish.

“It looks much closer if you look in the photo, but it was really far away. Well, not really far, far away, but it was far away from us,” Thenuis told CBC. “I was keeping an eye on it.”

A man mows his lawn ignoring the tornado that looms behind him. This is a great metaphor for the new US policy on climate change. pic.twitter.com/u9WDN3LcP6— Adam Best (@adamcbest) June 4, 2017
A good metaphor of the times: "Man who mowed lawn with tornado behind him says he 'was keeping an eye on it.'" https://t.co/7seyr1ulJnpic.twitter.com/BhkocNVrAQ— Josh Lambier (@JoshuaLambier) June 4, 2017
I don't know Rachel, sometimes it feels like we're mowing the lawn headfirst straight into the tornado— Aadil Bharwani (@AadilBharwani) June 4, 2017
