    Her timing could have been better, but to her parents, the baby who was born in a Connecticut hospital parking lot in the blizzard is perfect.
     
    The Bulletin reports that the baby, Elizabeth Judy, wasn't due until Feb. 23 and was to be delivered at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford.

      But Donna Ambrosia went into labor at home on Friday and a Colchester ambulance took her and her husband, James, to Norwich.
     
    James said that even with a plow escort, the ambulance ride took 45 minutes through the blizzard.
     
    The baby was born in the back of the ambulance as it arrived at the hospital, helped by a doctor who ran out of the emergency room and into the ambulance as it pulled into the parking lot.
