Trying to create a point shapefile from a text file

I am attempting to create a point shapefile from a text file.  The text file is space delimited with three columns; latitude, longitude, and snowfall.  I have done this before in ArcGIS 9.x.  However in Arc 10 I am having problems.  The script below produces a shapefile with the proper attributes and number of rows, but the geometry is messed up.  All points are located at 0, 0 lat/lon.  I have tried multiple variations but keep coming up with the same problem.  I have SP2 installed.  Any suggestions are appreciated.
