This winter, the hits just keep on coming. Even when it's not snowing, the toll the blizzards have taken on the region just keeps rising.

Layers of snow has caused more than 120 roofs to collapse — that includes the roof on a wing of the Old South Union Church in Weymouth.

In Boston, a snow-covered chimney fell on a parked car.

And less dramatic, but still a cause for concern, are leaky roofs that may get worse as the weather gets warmer.

When winter takes its toll on your property — who are you going to call? Your insurance agent.
