BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – Plows are slowly but surely making progress in Bridgeport, days after the blizzard dumped 30 inches of snow.

More blacktop is visible on the streets and snow blowers and shovels have gone to work on the sidewalks.

“A lot of people did a lot of work out here in Bridgeport by shovels. I’m surprised, they did more than the machines I think,” a delivery driver told¬†WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane.

A tow operator named Tom said he is working through the backlog, Murnane reported.

“I’ll be here for an hour shoveling them out,” Tom told Murnane. “Days, and another storm coming in over the weekend so it could be going on for another couple of weeks.”

Depending on how much snow Connecticut gets hit with in the new storm, Tom said he’s worried he may be out plowing until March.

“The way it’s looking now, there’s no end in sight,” he told Murnane.
