BRIDGEPORT - Some southwestern Connecticut residents are still stuck because of the mess Mother Nature dumped on the area this week.

Residents near State Street in the north end of Bridgeport are finally getting out.

More than 48 hours after the blizzard of 2010 ended residents are still digging themselves out.

One neighbor has turned to what she calls the "Boys of Summer" to help her with this winter problem.

They are the winter's version of knights in shining armor -- but with snow blowers and snow plows.

Rose Morelli, 95, says she has been stuck in her home since Sunday afternoon when the storm began.

Today she is finally getting out after she called the man who usually cuts her lawn in the summer.

Ken from Ken's Lawn Service says it feels good to be the hero today.

Mayor Bill Finch released a statement saying the public work crews are continuing their efforts to clear city streets. He says residents should continue to observe alternate side of the street parking rules to help snow plow drivers work more efficiently.
