Cecilia Wessels snapped the picture of her husband, Theunis, on Friday as the twister passed near their home in Alberta.
She said cutting the grass was on her husband's to-do list, and as he started the task, she went for a nap.
Wessels said she was woken by daughter who was upset that there was something like a tornado in the sky, but her father wouldn't come inside.
“I did ask him if he was coming inside with that thing in the clouds when I turned to come inside and he calmly said no,” Cecilia Wessels said Sunday.
Theunis Wessels said the tornado was actually much farther away than it appears in the photo and it was moving away from them. He said he was keeping an eye on it.
No one was injured.
