Watch an intense ice storm wreak havoc on a Fargo driving range

November 16, 2022

If you've ever seen the classic movie "Fargo," you probably associate freezing conditions with that part of the country. There are the icy roads. Icy ponds. Icy parking lots. William H. Macy's character losing his shit using an ice scraper on his car. Point is, there's a lot of ice (as well as blood), and, well, the videos you're about to see aren't going to change your perception.

Fargo was hit with a heavy (surprise!) ice storm last week that caused the usual damage you see with heavy ice storms. But one thing in particular caught our eye, albeit a few days late.

The ice wreaked havoc on a local driving range by bringing down large chunks of the huge safety nets surrounding the property. Check it out:

As you can see from KXMB reporter/anchor Luke Gamble, apparently, that's how the nets are designed. Still, it must have been a pretty scary sight for those out hitting golf balls. Although this guy seemed pretty, um, chill about the whole situation:

"I'm going to back up just a little bit," he's heard saying in the clip. Good idea, buddy.

And we can only imagine what was going through the head of the range picker out there driving a cart around. We're guessing he didn't sign up for that when he took that job!

Then maybe again, he did. It is Fargo, after all.
