We've all seen this picture, but do you know the story?

The photo of this man mowing his lawn during a tornado went viral over the weekend but does anyone know the story? Well, he's from Alberta Canada so that's a start but from the way his wife tells it, she went in to take a nap. Her little girl woke her up to tell her that there appeared to be a twister outside, yet her dad wouldn’t come in.

Sure enough, the man was out there mowing his lawn with a tornado raging behind him. “I was keeping an eye on it,” he explained. 

I think those of us in charge of lawn maintenance can appreciate that. You just want to get your yard work done. Especially before it rains. Or all blows away. The man was fine in the end. He was "keeping and eye on it" and that's the key!
