MADISON (WKOW) -- As the snow wrapped up in Madison, some people decided to try and make the most of it.

Early Saturday evening there were a few people getting out to enjoy sledding in parts of the city.

One couple was at Elver Park to finish up their date night.

They said they were disappointing there wasn't more snow to play with, but it didn't stop them from going up and down the hill multiple times without stopping.

They said they went out late because it's more fun to enjoy the park when there's no one else is there.

"I personally love the winter at night. It's just when there's snow on the ground it's so bright and light and everything is so clean fresh and quiet," Kimber Pamp, out sledding, said. "So I personally love coming out at night in the snow whereas at summer I'm a wuss and afraid of the dark."

Madison was under a snow emergency overnight and crews had to clean every street in the city.

Officials said it would take them all night and people should be prepared to dig themselves out in the morning.

"We're still going to be out on every street getting all that snow pushed back to the curb," Bryan Johnson, with the City of Madison Streets Division, said. "So when they get up Sunday morning to go to church or the grocery store or wherever you're headed, you might need to clear the end of your driveways out."

He also warned that if you put out your Christmas trees for collection this week, that's still going on, but make sure they're pulled out from the snow.
