CHICAGO (CBS) — Thursday’s brief snow would have otherwise gone unnoticed in Chicago, except for the fact that it marked another milestone in what has become quite the winter.

The Chicago area saw snowfall for nearly three days straight, leaving 12 inches or more in parts of the city, and up to 18 inches in some northern suburbs. The heavy snow will be followed by extreme cold at the start of next week. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
