At Least There’ll Be No Need To Rake

Thanks to one fearless Canadian man, there is no excuse good enough to get out of mowing the lawn ever again.

A house proud Canadian man wasn’t going to let a little thing like a tornado get in the way of mowing his lawn. Cecilia Wessels, had snapped the picture of the storm, from the window of her Three Hills home in Alberta on Friday.

While the huge tornado in the field behind the house is certainly impressive, Wessels says her friends and family were more interested in her husband Theunis who was out in the garden with his lawnmower, seemingly oblivious to the approaching threat.

‘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?’

I guess Theunis wasn’t worried about being swept away, what with his iron testicles and such. And before you ask, no this is not a photoshop. A tornado did hit Alberta Friday, and many other people captured its trajectory.

  1. The Mrs. goes to Kansas for business quite often. Earlier this year the sirens went off at the office for the first time while she was there. She was thinking it meant to run to the shelter. Apparently if you are a local it means run to the window and see if you can see anything.
