Theunis Wessels had a to-do list Friday evening, and he wasn’t gonna let anything, including the forces of nature, get in his way. That’s the only explanation for the photo above, which shows the Alberta man mowing the lawn with a massive tornado in the background.

His wife Cecilia snapped the pic after her daughter woke her up from a nap. The girl was upset that he wouldn’t come inside. For his part, Theunis says the storm was further away than it appears and that he was “keeping an eye on it.”

Regardless, it made for a pretty badass Facebook update, especially with his wife’s picture perfect caption: “My beast mowing the lawn with a breeze in his hair.”

Just another day, eh?
