This is Taking Lawn Care Too Far

I checked the sources, there’s no photoshop at play here. This guy really did his mow his lawn with a funnel cloud behind him. What’s more, his wife came out to take a picture.

In reference to the storm, the Alberta man said he was “keeping an eye on it.”

Good to know.

    1. Haha! I’ve had limited contact with Canadians and only part of the year at that. I think the ones who winter here are the sharp ones, as they leave at the first signs of bad weather, wherever they happen to be!

      1. Jonathon Brandmeier from KZZP had a song about Snowbirds that I don’t really remember except
        “He’s in the left lane trying to turn right. Something/something bolo tie’s too tight.
        You’re home’s aluminum
        You turquoise scum.
        You’re a Snowbird”
        The traffic problems were not that far from the mark.

  1. Well, I get it. I mean – who wants a tornado blowing through their yard with a messy lawn. I mean what would the rescue people say, “This guy doesn’t take care of his yard, not sure we should help him.” You know that the fire department only helps people with nice looking houses and that includes the lawn. Just say’n.

    1. Scary, isn’t it? My first impression was that he was just an overly stoic individual, seen twisters all his life, no big deal. But then you find out he’d never seen one before and didn’t know the danger. Holy cow! Your first time seeing a twister and you don’t dive for cover? That’s MAD!

    1. Haha! I’ve heard of people who run toward hurricanes just for the excitement (actually, I’ve heard of people running toward twisters too), but this is the first I’ve heard of them mowing.
      You were smart to move away. 😉

  2. Oh I see now! The way the post showed up in my feed, I initially thought you had found a picture of a gentleman using a funnel cloud in order to mow his lawn. I wasn’t sure how that would have worked. 🙂

    1. Can’t believe I missed that angle, but dang you’re right!
      Well done, Alberta man with an over-zealous devotion to lawn care. You’ve given all our life choices the mark of genius!
