Haboobs have been taking over the valley this past week and it looks like an even bigger dustorm hit The Legoland Discovery Center at Arizona Mills Mall. Cause they just released a super sweet stop motion video recreating the city of Phoenix, being overtaken by our massive dust storms. In the video you see the giant wall of dust and dirt all done with Legos slowly creeping over downtown phoenix. They even recreated Sky Harbor airport, fallen trees and light poles in the streets and a few other great locations. It’s pretty amazing, check out the video when you get a chance.
