Now this is dedication to mowing the lawn.

A tornado swept through Alberta, Canada on Friday, and Three Hills resident Cecilia Wessels took a photo of the tornado to share with family on social media. And while the tornado itself is certainly interesting, what particularly caught everyone’s eye is that her husband, Theunis, was casually mowing the lawn with the tornado in the background.

Via Times Colonist:

“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?’” Cecilia Wessels said Saturday.

Theunis said that the tornado was “far away” and that he was “keeping an eye on it” (although the photo would say otherwise):

“It looks much closer if you look in the photo, but it was really far away. Well, not really far, far away, but it was far away from us,” he said.

“I was keeping an eye on it.”

There are more photos from Cecilia on Sonic 102.9’s website to prove the amazing photo wasn’t photoshopped.

And here are a couple videos of the tornado:
