You call that snow?

OK, you can exhale now.

Take your time. Clean off the car. Take it easy. The world has not ended.

The scheduled end of the world has now been delayed until Tuesday.

That's when we're due for our next snow.

As snow goes, the overnight dusting we got didn't amount to much. It made for some messy early morning driving. Snow started around midnight but was over before daylight.

Schools still for the most part are opening on a two-hour delay.

And it counts in the Great Heron’s Nest Snow Prognosticating Contest. You might remember that I predicted we will have nine snows before we hit the first day of spring on March 20.

You scratch one of those off. Eight to go.

More snow is in the forecast for Tuesday.

In the meantime, bone-chilling cold is set to move in for the weekend. Our lows Sunday will dip into single digits. Highs likely won't make it out of the 20s.

Just remember: 23 days until pitchers and catchers report to Clearwater for Phillies; 58 days until the first day of spring.

Then again, just remember that we did not get the bulk of our snow last year until February. Say it ain't so, Punxsutawney.
