Baby born during blizzard, named Winter


On the evening of February 23 — while a powerful winter storm was barreling through Southern California — Crystal Wade of Lake Arrowhead (in the San Bernardino Mountains) went into labor.

Later that night, when Crystal and her husband Brady were finally able to begin the 50-mile drive to the nearest hospital, conditions were treacherous: heavy snowfall, strong crosswinds, and unplowed mountain roads.

Luckily, they reached the hospital in time for the delivery. Their baby girl was born around 5 a.m. on February 24.

Her name? Winter.

The twist? “Winter” had been chosen five months earlier! The fact that Winter Wade happened to be born in the middle of a historical winter storm is just an intriguing coincidence.
