Postman’s creed? That’s jayvee. This guy has them beat by a mile.

The work’s not done until it’s done.

Looks ‘shopped’ doesn’t it.

It’s not. This guy is from Alberta… which is Canada’s answer to Texas.

Theunis Wessels is a man who likes to finish what he starts.

On Friday evening, he began mowing his lawn in the town of Three Hills and kept mowing even as a towering tornado appeared in the distance.

When his wife, Cecilia, saw him cutting the grass with the tornado at his back, she snapped a dramatic photo.

“A tornado warning had not been issued yet,” Cecilia said. “The warning only came out about 10 minutes later (after the photo).”

Theunis took the tornado in stride and said he was “keeping an eye on it” while he continued to mow.

“Keeping an eye on it.”

That’s pretty badass.

And if he finishes before the storm’s over, he won’t have to rake.
