With a total ban on travel and no food delivery, New Yorker City residents had little else to do Monday night but cook, sit around, and watch a few flurries fall. The city that never sleeps was incredibly boring by night.

But a few individuals kept the city’s spirit alive, refusing to be defeated by a storm that largely brushed passed the region. They kept New York weird and wonderful on a quiet night and well into the following day, finding inventive ways to enjoy the snow like only a New Yorker could. Here are some of the adventures they shared on social media.

1. Some ignored the travel ban and skied on empty streets:

7. And for working out, if you’re determined:

8. But probably the wackiest of all the things was CNN’s Don Lemon, who outdid himself with a ride in a “Blizzardmobile” and proclaimed, “There’s nothing really happening on the streets of Manhattan right now.”
