“May you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” from the Long’s Insurance Family – Terri, Cheri, Jim and Deanna





Approximately 1 in 6 people in Colorado going hungry daily.  While hunger can affect anyone there are close to 14,900 kids in Weld county dealing with hunger each day.

Long’s Insurance wants to help so we are hosting a FOOD DRIVE to collect food for the Weld County Food Bank and the Mead Help Center to provide food for the Holiday Season for those less fortunate.  Stop by our office between 10/15/2015 and 11/12/2015 to donate nonperishable food items.

We might not be ready for the PGA but….


On Sunday July 12, 2015 at the Cattail Creek Golf Course in Loveland Long’s Insurance competed and sponsored a hole in the first annual Denver Scottish Rite Golf Tournament to support speech therapy for children.  This charity helps children with speech and language disorders. This was a good way to spend our off hours, having fun with co-workers, friends and supporting a good cause.

              Turns out we brought a ringer with us.  Terri won the longest drive on hole 9.

The charity exceeded their goals of funds raised and we had a lovely morning of golf!!!!!

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


As the rain keeps coming and more water continues to collect we thought we’d share a few facts with you.

  • Did you know that in the past 5 years, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods?
  • Did you know that new land development can increase flood risk, especially if the construction changes natural runoff paths?
  • Did you know most homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage?
  • Did you know that in most cases it takes 30 days after purchase for a flood insurance policy to take effect?
  • If you live in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) or high-risk area and have a Federally backed mortgage, your mortgage lender requires you to have flood insurance.
  • Just a few inches of water from a flood can cause tens of thousands of dollars of damage.
  • Anyone can be vulnerable to floods, people outside of mapped high-risk flood areas file nearly 25% of all National Flood Insurance Program flood insurance claims and receive one-third of Federal Disaster Assistance for flooding.

Long’s Insurance and it’s employees are proud residents of Frederick and the Carbon Valley area and the 2013 flooding hit close to home. If you have questions about if flood insurance is right for you or your business please call, write or drop in.  We are happy to talk to you today.

April 10th is National Golfers Day


Yesterday was the Rockies opener but it was also a day to appreciate golf.  In honor of that we thought we share one of our games with you.

Being insurance professionals we thought we would share some trivia that interested us:

The chance of an average golfer making a hole in one has been calculated with odds of approximately 12,500 to 1.  Professional golfer have a little better chance at 2,500 to 1.  (Insurance actuaries)

Whether you like golf or not it is a great workout.  Assuming the golfer walks rather than rides, a typical golfer weighing about 190 pounds will burn 431 calories an hour in addition to building greater muscle mass. (Health and fitness website

It is almost 70 degrees today…are you sure it’s February?

As we enter into the month of love with record high temperatures Longs Insurance wants to remind you that while it might be hot for this time of year there is still plenty of winter fun to be had.

While today is the last day of The Steamboat Winter Carnival there are plenty more events planned for people who enjoy winter in the mountains.

If you haven’t had a chance to throw on your ice skates this winter there is still time.  Enjoy the excitement of the city while gliding with your friends around the ice rink.

If ice palaces are more your speed then don’t slow down, head on up to Cripple Creek Colorado for the Ice Festival coming up next weekend.

And for those of you who are less traditional in your Valentines Day activities there are plenty of great ways to spend this special day.  For the runners among us, nothing really says I love you like a 5 or 10K.  The course of love is a local favorite, check out all the runs going on at:

If the only heat you are looking for on the 14th is from a piping hot bowl of gumbo then you are all set with a short trip to Manitou Springs for the Mumbo Gumbo cook-off.

Whatever you choose to do, be safe and enjoy the unseasonable weather and this fantastic state!!!
