We don't pump our fists like they do on Jersey Shore. In fact, most of us New Jersians are a little (a lot) embarrassed by that show.
And we are stronger than the storm - SuperStorm Sandy messed us up for a bit, but didn't knock us down, and our beloved shore is rebuilding.
But the thing that we love the most about New Jersey is the seasons.
We have a real winter, complete with 6 foot snow drifts and blizzard like conditions that drive us indoors for days.
We have a real summer, filled with 'record breaking' heat waves and humidity that could choke you.
We have a real autumn, with spectacular colors and apple picking and pumpkin carving.
And we have a real spring, with chirping birds and budding trees.
We love New Jersey - all year 'round!
