Theunis Wessels told CTV News that he needed to get his grass cut before a busy weekend of chauffeuring his children to their sporting events. His wife Cecilia took the photo after their worried daughter prompted him to come inside. But he pointed out he finished the lawn first.

Three Hills resident Vance Neudorf was also out during the tornado touch-down. He was driving home from the grocery store when he noticed the tornado heading right towards his daughter’s house.

“I was driving home from the grocery store and a funnel cloud formed overhead,” Neudorf writes. “I pulled over as it was heading directly for my daughter’s house. I called and told her to take the grandkids into the basement. As I filmed the time-lapse video, I watched as it passed just behind their subdivision in an open field.”

Here’s the amazing time-lapse video he captured:
