A picture of a Canadian man mowing his lawn on Friday with a backdrop of a huge twister blew up the Internet this weekend. The picture, posted to Facebook by his wife, shows Three Hills, Canada resident, Theunis Wessels seemingly unfazed, continuing to mow the lawn while a tornado swirls close by.

With speeds up to 50 mph, the tornado did cause some damage to surrounding trees and buildings but there were no reported injuries.

Residents of the 3,000-person town say the tornado was a first-time occurrence for them.
