It wasn't all it was cracked up to be, but this latest snow storm dumped a few inches on Delaware.

As of 10 p.m. DelDOT reports Glasgow has the most snow with just a little more than four inches. Hockessin has 3.7".

Greenville, Prices Corner, New Castle and Townsend each have about 2.5". Newark and Stanton have less than 2".

In Kent County, Viola reports 4 inches. Harrington has 3.9". Dover has 3.8 inches.

In Sussex County, Ellendale has 3.5". Laurel has 2.6 inches.

So, what happened to all the snow we were expecting?

Some forecasters were originally calling for 6 to 10 inches of snow...maybe a foot.

AccuWeather's Chase Howard says the storm took a turn to the south - with northern areas being spared.

"The storm was forecasted by most of the computer models to be farther to the north. And then as (the models) started to get a better handle, the trend continued to be further and further south. So places that we thought would get a lot of snow, like across Pennsylvania, ended up not seeing much at all. And the heavier snow ended up farther to the south across Virginia," Howard says.

Now Howard says we'll have to deal with cold temperatures.

"Bone chilling cold for tonight. We'll see temperatures down into the single digits, and we could break the record of 5 degrees, which was set in 1943," Howard says.
