    Resident of Three Hills, Alberta
    Photographed by his wife, Cecilia, mowing the lawn -- with a tornado looming in the background (June 2, 2017)
    Photo went viral after being posted on Facebook
    He refused to come in despite the urgings of his wife and their nine-year-old daughter.
    He said of the tornado, ‘I was keeping an eye on it,’ but in the photo he clearly has his back to it.
    When she posted the photo on Facebook, Cecilia captioned it ‘My beast mowing the lawn with the wind in his hair.’
    She also commented, ‘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?’’
    He noted that the family had a busy weekend planned, so he had little free time for mowing.
    He had recently attended a storm chasing seminar in Saskatchewan.
    He said the tornado was much farther away than it looks in the photo and was headed east, away from their house.
    As he pointed out, “I did get the lawn finished, and it looks nice.’
    Online comments included ‘Nothing stops a Canadian from mowing his lawn,’ ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get mowing,’ and ‘Keep calm and mow on.’
