The "historic" blizzard blew through the New York region with more of a whimper than a bang. But on Monday, just as the storm was gearing up and people started to hunker down at home, online food deliveries unsurprisingly saw a big pickup.
According to exclusive data provided to CNBC by GrubHub, we now know exactly how the different New York boroughs handled the storm: The size of orders, tips and the number cheese pizzas all went up.
Despite Mayor Bill de Blasio's assertion that "a food delivery bicycle is not an emergency vehicle," hungry New Yorkers couldn't fight the urge to order. Data from GrubHub's GrubHub Seamless.com ordering site showed some serious spikes:

Carbs saw the biggest increase: Pizza, pancakes, muffins, pasta and bread saw giant jumps in orders compared to typical Mondays this past season.
