June 4 (UPI) -- A Canadian man's commitment to lawn care is going viral after his wife snapped a photo of him mowing the grass with a tornado looming behind him.

Cecilia Wessels posted a photo to Facebook that she said was snapped Friday as a tornado passed near their Three Hills, Alberta home.


The photo shows Wessels' husband, Theunis, mowing the lawn with the tornado in the background.

"My beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hair," Wessels wrote.

Wessels later explained the tornado was not as close as it appeared to be in the photo and was moving away from their home at the time.

Theunis Wessels said he was keeping an eye on the twister to ensure it didn't change directions while he was mowing.
