Take heart! This is what snow looks like when it melts. It is gray mushy water. This is how it looked in Denver today as the temperature went into the 50s. This is how it will look someday in Atlanta when your climate remembers that it is supposed to be globally warming. Even though it is very messy, you can go out in it (as long as you don't care about the condition of your footwear). You will be homebound no more. It will happen - soon.
