    Even this apocalyptic-looking funnel cloud didn’t scare the people of Three Hills, a town in Alberta, Canada, as they were going through their to-do lists. In this time-lapse video captured by a man returning home after shopping, another guy is seen taking pictures of the natural phenomenon passing by closely.

    Meanwhile, another family was working in their back garden when the tornado touched down. On this photo snapped by Cecilia Wessels, her husband is seen mowing the lawn with a poker face. "Our whole street, everyone was on their back patios taking pictures," she told CBC News.

    On June 2, a thunderstorm produced a spectacular swirl in a field a few kilometers northeast of Three Hills. There have been no reports of injuries from the tornado, although some photos captured by witnesses show downed trees and a roof ripped off a barn.
