(CNN)Across the state of Florida, and up into Georgia and South Carolina, images of first responders have become a welcome sight amid the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
But among the usual uniforms -- those of police, firefighters and paramedics -- a nun's habit stands out.
And when said nun is wielding a chainsaw, well, that is something that can renew faith in even the most downtrodden.
"There was a need, I had the means, so I wanted to help out," Sister Margaret Ann told Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening.
A 30-year education veteran from Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in West Kendall, Florida, Sister Margaret Ann knew of a chainsaw in her school's closet, so she thought nothing of ripping into a downed tree blocking a road.
"We teach our students: Do what you can to help other people, don't think of yourselves," she said during a live interview on CNN's "OutFront." "That's what I wanted to do."

The Felling Nun?..............

She’s on a Missio Dei with a chainsaw. Awesome.
One of those renegade nuns on wheels I bet.
Look for her Harley.
Would the Nuns on the Bus done anything this inspiring after a hurricane in their polyester pantsuited?
Nice. Real nuns were the traditional uniform.

The Sawing Nun.
She must be a terror in the classroom.
Yep. Chainsawing in loose clothing is a bad habit.
Have a friend who lives around the corner from a convent on an old estate. Often see the nuns in full habit out weed whacking and mowing the grass
Time to come clean with a confession.
When I was 12 or 13 we used to skateboard through a catholic school on Saturdays.
The convent adjoined the school and had an 8’ wall around its backyard which was visible from the 2nd level balcony of the school.
One day as we skated past there were several nuns sunbathing in the backyard.
The sight still haunts me to this day.
When a yardstick just won’t do...
The Flaying Nun.

That thick habit might provide some ballistic protection from a blade kickback.
