CONNECTICUT (PIX11) – Talk about storming onto the scene. One baby in Connecticut just couldn’t wait.

Donna Ambrosia went into labor in the middle of Friday night’s blizzard.

Her husband called 911, not knowing what to expect in white out conditions.

To their surprise, an ambulance and a snowplow pulled into their driveway.

They had to drive around a jack-knifed tractor trailer and abandoned cars to get to the hospital.

They sort of made it.

Ambrosia gave birth in the hospital’s parking lot. The family says now that it’s over, it’s earned little Elizabeth a nickname – ‘Stick.’

Mom and baby are doing just fine.
