What a year so far! Thank you for choosing O’Connor & Co. Insurance.

What a year 2011 turned out to be! It’s hard believe that our year oconnor_insurance_hurricanewas filled with all types of weather-related events. Here is a review of some of the events that occurred for which we had you covered and insured along the way.

In January and February, the snow came, and came, and came! It seemed like it would never stop! One snowstorm after another caused accidents on our roads and ice dams in our homes and businesses. It was the most expensive winter damage in years. We were all more than happy to welcome spring.

In June, tornadoes hit all the way from Springfield to Worcester, which left thousands without power and even with homes.

In August, an earthquake hit the northeast and it’s brunt was felt all throughout the region. Who can forget Hurricane Irene which caused massive flooding, wind damage and power outages to thousands of people?

Most people would consider this more than enough of bad weather for a decade! However, in this year of varied inclement weather, we had trick-or-treaters braving the snowy streets and sidewalks to collect their Halloween goodies. This October snowstorm caused more power outages, school cancellations and left us wondering if what is next. The good news is that November led to record warmth throughout the region. We can all hope for a mild winter this up coming season.

In spite of all these disasters, we all made it though it together. At O’Connor Insurance, we are glad to “weather the storm” with you, our customers.
