Alberta man mows his lawn to internet stardom

You may have already seen this picture, but it is great, and so worth repeating.
Cecilia Wessels' photo of her husband Theunis mowing a lawn with a tornado behind him
Theunis Wessels is shown calmly mowing his lawn in Three Hills, Alberta, a small town just northeast of Calgary, as a humdinger of a tornado apparently races towards him (it actually moved east, away from Mr. Wessels' house and lawn, and was actually about 2km distant at the time of the picture, further away than it seems).
An instant classic of contemporary photography, and proof that Western Canadians are cool and macho (and nuts!).
