Emblematic of America's attitude to Islam right now.

That grass ain't gonna' cut itself.

That mower is an industrial grade quad blade hi-vac mulcher with a 27 hp v-twin turbo and when that ignorant tornado gets close he'll flip that mower upside down and run for the cellar and watch the ensuing battle as that mower sucks that tornado right down into it's gullet and instantly farts that powder puff out thru the turbo.

Injecting a bit of mordant reality here:
My next door neighbor as a similar wood fence. When Hurricane Ike made it's journey through the area a few years back, a funnel cloud dropped in on the other side of next door (approx 400yds away).
The amount of destruction that the wooden slats from that fence caused was truly impressive. There were slashes cut in my roof that looked like a giant utility knife had been used; each one corresponded to a missing slat in his fence.
(That's what I think of when I see funnel clouds and wood fences.)

Please note.
The person mowing is pleased that the tornado by-passed his yard and is distantly spinning away,
busying itself harmless​ly. Toto, Dorothy, and the Wizard are likewise dervishly delighted.

I've lived in Kansas for ~40 years and seen only one tornado. It was a mile away, but almost a mile wide. With them spinning it is difficult to tell which way they are actually moving. Around here the best time to meet your neighbors is when the tornado sirens go off, because most everybody will be outside looking to the SW.

The prevailing winds are from the SW here too. Was leaving a business the other day at noon when the siren went off, I was about 75' from the tower. Loudest thing I ever heard. I stood there watching it go around, mesmerized. It was a once a month test and I just happened to be there. My wife was about 4 miles away at our house and didn't hear it.
