Snow blanketed parts of DeKalb, Jackson and Marshall County Friday.
The pillowy layer of snow covered cars, tree tops and roofs in parts of the Tennessee Valley, causing several school districts to dismiss thousands of student early in Jackson, Dekalb and Marshall Counties.
The Dekalb County government building was also shut down for the day due to the snow. The annual Fort Payne Christmas Parade was also postponed until December 15.
Despite the 1-6 inches of snowfall, most of it did not stick to the roads.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency warned motorists to drive carefully on these slick roads, especially communities along Interstate 59.
