What would you do if you encountered a chainsaw-wielding nun?
An off-duty police officer in Miami did just that this week - but no arrest was needed, and the incident didn't turn into the latest #FloridaWoman fodder.
Sister Margaret Ann, wearing her nun's habit, was caught on camera using the heavy equipment to help clear a tree toppled by the ferocious storm.
A south Florida nun chose to forego divine intervention this week and picked up a chainsaw instead to join the cleanup efforts following Hurricane Irma.
"Thank you Sister and all of our neighbors that are working together to get through this!" the police department wrote on Facebook along with photos of Sister Margaret Ann at work.
"There was a need, I had the means, so I wanted to help out", Sister Margaret Ann told Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening.
And while social media is now rife with every nun pun imaginable, it's hard not to admire yet another great example of everyone lending a hand to recovery efforts so soon after a major disaster.
A chainsaw operator may be in severe danger if attempting to cut a tensioned limb or trunk (called a "spring pole") - it may have an extremely violent, catapult-like reaction. NEVER attempt to move downed utility lines.
