People Are Going Crazy Over This Photo of a Man Mowing His Lawn During a Tornado

"Honey the house is gone but the grass looks great."
  • During a tornado in Alberta, Canada, on Friday, a woman named Cecilia Wessels photographed her husband Theunis taking care of his chores

    Cecilia and Theunis are originally from South Africa, but have relocated to Three Hills in Alberta. During the tornado, Cecilia wanted to take a picture and send it to her family in South Africa who have never experienced one. 

    When Cecilia looked out the window and saw her husband mowing the lawn, she decided to caption the photo, "My beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hair."

    According to Cecilia, Theunis attended a seminar led by Tornado Hunters' Greg Johnson, so he was not intimidated by the storm.

  • Although Theunis appeared calm, Cecilia's friends could not believe their eyes

  • Soon after the photo went viral, it became a new meme for people to describe their life

  • Others could not help but joke about the craziness of the photo
