“I was keeping an eye on it”
Theunis Wessels from Alberta, Canada was not going to let a little twister ruin his to-do list!
This photo, taken in Three Hills, Alta., is causing a bit of a storm on social media. • Cecilia Wessels says cutting the grass was on her husband's to-do list, and as he started the task late Friday afternoon, she went for a nap. • She awoke to her nine-year-old daughter, upset her father wouldn’t come inside. • Wessels discovered her husband doing his chore as a twister passed near their home, and managed to snap a photo. • Theunis Wessels says the tornado was actually much farther away than it appears in the photo. • No injuries have been reported as a result of the tornado. • Photo by Cecilia Wessels, via The Canadian Press | #cbcnews @cbccalgary #abstorm #storm #tornado #twister
His wife snapped this photo that eventually went viral (for obvious reasons) on Twitter. The reason he didn’t take cover? He “watched a TV program about storm chasers, so he’s familiar with them.”
Of course, he turned into a new meme too.
