A dad casually mowed the lawn with a tornado in the background

Theunis Wessels decided it was time to mow the lawn on Friday, and no storm was going to stop him.

His wife Cecilia went to take a nap and was woken up by their nine-year-old daughter who’d seen a tornado brewing and was upset that her dad wouldn’t come inside, The Canadian Press reported.

Cecilia snapped a photo to send to her parents back in South Africa, where the Wessels lived before moving to Alberta, Canada, and posted it on Facebook.

The photo quickly made the rounds on social media as people added their own interpretations of the photo — and expressed admiration for Theunis’ commitment to maintaining a well-manicured lawn.

As for Theunis, he told The Canadian Press that the tornado wasn’t as close as it looks in the photo, that it was moving away from him, and that he was “keeping an eye on it.”
