A photo of a Canadian man mowing his lawn with a tornado twisting behind him has taken social media by storm.

Cecilia Wessels took the photo of her husband, Theunis, on Friday as the twister passed near their family’s home in Alberta, Canada.

Her caption? “My beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hair”

In her viral Facebook photo’s comments, Cecilia Wessels writes that her husband attended a seminar on tornadoes, and that he did see the tornado, “made a calculated decision and well finished his job.”
