Say What Now? Canadian Man Photographed Mowing His Lawn with a Tornado Swirling Right Behind Him [Photo]

We’re all for committing to a to-do list, but not when it involves being outside during a tornado.

Theunis Wessles, from Canada, was out mowing his lawn when a tornado began swirling behind him. His wife snapped the above picture as the twister passed by their home.

She said cutting the grass was on her husband’s to-do list, and as he started the task, she went for a nap.

Wessels said she was woken by daughter who was upset that there was something like a tornado in the sky, but her father wouldn’t come inside.

“I did ask him if he was coming inside with that thing in the clouds when I turned to come inside and he calmly said no,” Cecilia Wessels said Sunday.

Theunis Wessels said the tornado was actually much farther away than it appears in the photo and it was moving away from them. He said he was keeping an eye on it.

No one was injured.

We have to admit…that photo is pretty striking.
