After the wrath of a serious winter storm, many residents in Stamford, Connecticut are trying to dig their way through two feet of snow. 

 
"It's a really light fluffy snow until a plow came then it got real thick, heavy, and icy,” says McKenna Crilley, a Stamford resident. 
 
Crilley’s plastic shovel was no match for the heavy snow as she attempted to free her car for Monday’s commute.  
 
"It's breaking.  It's cracking slowly but surely," Crilley says.
 
EMTs with Stamford Emergency Medical Services were preparing for a long night of shoveling. 
 
"Car accidents all over the place. A lot of slips and falls.  Lot of elderly who it’s hard to get to because their driveways aren't shoveled," says Stamford EMT Eileen Brophy. 
 
Brophy has more than 30 inches of snow barricading her home but she left her family to help local strangers.
 
"We care about the community.  We do everything we can to make everything run as smoothly as possible.  I'm really proud to work here," Brophy said.
