Clouded judg­ment

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

Not even a tor­nado swirling be­hind him was go­ing to stop former South African The­u­nis Wes­sels from get­ting his work done in Three Hills, Al­berta, Canada. Ac­cord­ing to his wife Ce­cilia, mow­ing the lawn was on her hus­band’s to-do list for the day and he was adamant that he wanted to fin­ish. Ce­cilia, who took the pho­to­graph of The­u­nis that has since gone vi­ral, said: “I did ask him if he was com­ing in­side with that thing in the clouds, and he calmly said ‘no’.” The­u­nis said the tor­nado was ac­tu­ally much fur­ther away than it ap­pears in the photo, and it was mov­ing away from them.
