ATHENS — Maggie, a boxer mix belonging to Amy Sayne and her son Jackson, chases snowflakes in the yard of their home in Southern Breeze subdivision in Limestone County. Rain, sleet and snow moved across the Tennessee Valley Thursday, forcing area schools to dismiss early and wreaking havoc on roads. Numerous slush-related travel issues were reported in Madison, where police warned against travel except in case of emergencies.
