SOMERVILLE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — While much of Massachusetts was working to dig out of the snow dropped by January's historic blizzard, the workers at Legoland in Assembly Row were working hard to add more snow to the streets of their Boston display.
The Legoland Discovery Center is home to a large Lego replica of Boston, that features many famous local landmarks like Beacon Hill and the TD Garden, along with buildings and streets. To commemorate last month's historic blizzard, the location's master builder Sean Martin decided to add some blizzard-themed decorations to the store's model.
"We thought it would be a great idea to do a little set up of a bunch of cars snowed in and have space savers all in these different [parking] spots," Martin said. "It's sort of like what you see whenever you drive through Boston [after a storm]."
As for the space savers, Martin said he tried to emulate how strange some of the space savers chosen by Boston's residents can be.
"I built little lawn chairs, strollers, and all sorts of weird things you might see around Boston just holding down spots," Martin said.
January's blizzard was a record-setting snowstorm for Massachusetts. Boston saw as much as 24.5 inches of snow in some areas, according to the National Weather Service. Stoughton took home the prize for most snow during the blizzard, with about 30.9 inches of snow on the ground.
