Woodstock is a winter paradise, particularly when you don’t have to shovel snow


The Woodstock Square is one of the premier sights in the Midwest this time of year (click on picture to learn about events in the city of Woodstock).

Woodstock is beautiful in the winter. When The Square is illuminated with holiday lights, it virtually jumps onto the canvas of a Norman Rockwell painting. It’s the same in the surrounding area where rolling meadows and horse farms seem as though they were created just for the most awe-inspiring winter backdrops.

While it’s easy to appreciate the beauty of nature as reflected in a Woodstock winter, you don’t have to shovel a lot of snow for the season to lose a bit of its luster. Considering that, last year, we had approximately 80 inches of snow in the Chicago area, the tarnish was considerable.

How much snow will this winter deliver? It’s anyone’s guess. But, if early indications mean anything, a repeat of last winter’s heavy snow and bitter cold is quite conceivable. Of course, you don’t have to surrender your appreciation for the panorama of a Woodstock winter to your snow shovel or snowblower; there is an alternative.

Why not let someone else clear the snow from your walkways and driveways, from the parking lot of your business? Cal & Shan’s, a local Woodstock snow removal company, has cleared the snow for clients in this area for more than 10 years.

Cal & Shan’s has state-of-the-art equipment and experienced drivers to make short work of even the heaviest snowfalls. Their operators are reliable and dedicated.

Cal & Shan’s will clear parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, loading docks, access roads and then apply salt or liquid deicer. Mostly, they’ll wipe away the tarnish from your appreciation of a Woodstock winter.

Yes, it’s still cold out in the winter. But that cold is much more bearable when it doesn’t include the back-breaking chore of shoveling snow.
