You know you’re from the Midwest when you can look this calm, cool, and collected with a tornado ripping behind you. And no, Photoshop wasn’t involved! This woman, who was identified as Audra Thomas, is from Beaver City, Nebraska. Nebraska gets hit with, on average, 57 tornadoes each year, so this was probably the norm for Thomas.

While the tornado looks like it’s right behind her, the storm is actually miles away. Not that that makes it any less terrifying!
