BRIDGEPORT - Drivers who abandoned their cars during the winter storm Friday night returned Saturday to find their vehicles buried in more than 2 feet of snow.

Drivers were forced to leave their cars idle as heavy snow and driving winds ravaged the region. Unfortunately, some say their shovels and de-icing tools were trapped in their trunks, leaving them out of luck.

Bridgeport officials hope to bring in plows from private contractors and nearby towns to help with the cleanup.
