Excel conditional formatting blanks

See Attached sheet.

I have placed conditional formatting on a date column to change colors as the date gets closer to today.

However I would like for the BLANK cells to remain unformatted. So if there is nothing in the cell or it is blank then it should not have any formatting on it - it should be white with black text.
