Chicago Blizzard 2015: Time Lapse Video

By John Dodge

CHICAGO (CBS) -- For the second time in four years, Chicago was hit by a historic storm on Groundhog's Day.

This 2015 storm (officially 19.3 inches) ranks as the fifth biggest in Chicago history.

The 2011 snowfall (officially 21.2 inches) ranks No. 3.

This time, the storm fell on a weekend, compared with the 2011 snow, which hit during the week and stranded motorists on Lake Shore Drive.

Just like in 2011, the time lapse videos show how the snow piled up.
