Bills players returned to an unwelcome situation upon finally getting back from Chicago on Sunday, as their cars were covered with snow and stuck in their parking spaces.

Buffalo has been hit with a massive blizzard this weekend, with a daily record snowfall of 22.3 inches descending on the city Friday according to the National Weather Service and extreme conditions forcing the city’s airport to be closed through Tuesday morning.

After a flight to Rochester on Sunday morning, Bills players finally made it home later after being forced to stay overnight in Chicago following a 35-13 win vs. the Bears.

But it was not all smooth sailing from there as several players found they still had work to do to get their cars off the lot.

Buffalo safety Damar Hamlin shared a video to his Instagram that showed a car driving away with a massive chunk of snow on it, while his fellow defensive back Dane Jackson could hardly get in his vehicle.

Barely able to open his driver’s door because of the snow surrounding his SUV, the cornerback is seen squeezing into the narrowest of spaces to get into his car.
