Can’t order pizza in this storm? Try not to panic.

You may be off from work and school, New York, but there’s bad news coming out of this record-breaking winter storm Juno: no food delivery. As the snow started finally sticking to the asphalt, mayor Bill de Blasio announced during a press conference earlier this afternoon that no non-emergency vehicles will be allowed on the streets.

Even though you might consider midnight sushi cravings an emergency, the mayor did confirm that this rule applies to cabs and food delivery bikes, which will not be allowed on the streets. There’s no word yet on when the delivery bike ban will be lifted, but for now, know that you won’t be able to place a Seamless order for quite some time.

We can hear you panicking, but have no fear! The Daily Meal is here with an armload of recipes and storm survival tips. For example, in case of a blackout, freeze bags of water and place them in the fridge to keep food cold, and do not open your fridge. Also, when the weather outside is frightful, keep your insides toasty with these six winter soups.

Stay warm, Big Apple.
