Man Who Mowed Lawn During Tornado: ‘I Was Keeping an Eye on It’

Breitbart – by Katherine Rodriguez

A tornado made landfall in Canada on Friday, but one man decided that a tornado was not going to stop him from mowing the lawn.

Theunis Wessels, of Alberta, was cutting the grass in his backyard with the tornado in the background when his wife, Cecilia, decided to take a picture of the scene to send to her parents in South Africa, the Canadian Press reported.  

The photo quickly went viral on Twitter, gaining over 1,000 retweets.

Cecilia said she took a nap while her husband went to mow the lawn when she was awoken by her 9-year-old daughter who was worried that her father would not come inside during the storm.

“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?’” Cecilia said.

She added that many of her neighbors were also taking pictures of the storm.

Theunis said that the storm was further away than it looked in the photo and it was moving in the opposite direction from them.

“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,” he said.

Still, Theunis said he was watching the storm closely as it formed a funnel cloud.

“I was keeping an eye on it,” Theunis said.

Nobody was injured as a result of the tornado, but KWQC reports the area had some property damage.

  1. I see this as a sign how White people are oblivious to the Jewish Communist led ultra violence (storm) coming their way “soon.”

  2. People in general have a shit my pants reaction to tornadoes. I grew up in Indiana and had many , many encounters with tornadoes. I used to watch them come down and go back up or sometimes just hang and pass over. The wind was very refreshing, and when you are a kid out in the middle of nowhere IN, it is one of the few things in life that is exciting. My wife on the other hand, from Texas, scared to death of a little wind and she is sure there is a tornado ion every cloud. I’ve seen what they can do, and had a cat 5 go past my house about 1/2 a mile down the took out a concrete block gym on the highschool..but as long as it is at a distance you have time to get in a safe place before it gets to you.
