Canadian man calmly mows lawn during twister in epic photo

A photo of a Canadian man calmly mowing his lawn as a twister looms ominously in the background has predictably taken the Internet by storm. 

Theunis Wessels, who lives in Three Hills, Alberta, "wasn't worried at all", about the Twister, his wife Cecilia Wessels told BBC. Cecilia told BBC she was napping Friday when her 9-year-old daughter woke her up and expressed concern over her father's daredevil mowing. 

"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 told AP. 

Cecilia told BBC that while the twister looks like it's in their backyard, it was actually more than a mile away and the storm ended quickly. 

On social media, many people shared the Cecilia's photo and their admiration for Theunis' weather be damned attitude. #Determination 

 

 

 

Others found a deeper meaning in the photo.
