Theunis Wessels mows his lawn in Alberta.   (Facebook)

(Newser) – Listen, that lawn isn't going to mow itself, tornado or no tornado. A photo of a man in Alberta, Canada, taking care of his lawn chore with a twister in the background has gone viral, reports UPI. Cecelia Wessels posted it to Facebook with the caption, "My beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hair," referring to her husband, Theunis.

"I literally took the picture to show my mum and dad in South Africa, 'Look there's a tornado,' and now everyone is like, 'Why is your husband mowing the lawn?"' she says, per the CBC. Wessels himself says the tornado appears much closer than it actually was, and it was moving away from their home in Three Hills, not toward it. "I was keeping an eye on it," he explains.
