What Were People Doing During Hurricane Sandy?

Hurricane Sandy was the sassiest of storms, to say the least — the entire East Coast was affected in one way or another. Although the worst of the weather is over, Frankenstorm has still forced millions of people to stay inside and wait for outside damage to be cleared. Cue: major cabin fever.

The thought of being stuck in one place for days on end is enough to make us have a minor panic attack, but it turns out hurricane hermits from all over dealt with the storm in pretty creative ways. Luckily, Twitter and Instagram are still up and running to document these mid-hurricane attempts to stay sane.
