What Tornado? Sweetheart, the grass needs to be cut


Introducing Theunis Wessels, who is just cutting his grass on a Friday evening.

Normal right! Nothing at all going on at all. Cutting the grass had been on the Canadian’s to-do (chore) list for a while.

So, Wessels decided to cut the grass on Friday – best time to check off the chore – said his wife, Cecilia Wessels in an interview with Buzzfeed.

In the interview with Buzzfeed, Wessels said that she was sleeping when her nine year old daughter woke her up scared…

…What was the little girl scared of? An breathtaking and photogenic Tornado outside the family’s home in Alberta1, Canada.

1: Three Hills, Alberta to be exact.

Wessels said that she looked out the window and saw her husband and this absolutely normal scene – the complete “epitome of this is fine”.

FYI: The family moved from South Africa to Canada almost a decade ago.

Wessels stated that her husband was calm because he attended a seminar led by Tornado Hunters very own, Greg Johnson.

Wessels specified (during the interview) that she actually took the photo to show her parents in South Africa what a Tornado looked like.

However, when she posted the photo to Facebook, with the caption “my beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hard”.

Everyone (shockingly – not really) had the same question: “Why is your husband mowing the lawn?”

Whist this (see in video below) is happening…

Wessels suggested that the Tornado was not as close as it appears to be in the photo and was moving away from the house.

In the general public’s eyes, Nope, Nope, Nope. In our eyes, YES! YES! YES. We love absolutely everything about this photo – including the memes.
