We've all been watching the shocking reports from New York that show the damage that Superstorm Sandy did to the the northeast. Many of us have been up all night, glued to the television and thinking of friends and family riding out the storm.

ABC News is reporting that over seven million people have been left without power and 17 people have been confirmed dead in the aftermath of this storm. The world's most vibrant city is essentially closed as Sandy's storm surges flooded subways, closed hospitals, and shuttered the New York Stock Exchange.

One of the worst things that happens in a storm is the feeling of isolation felt when the power is cut off and communication is rendered impossible. Thankfully, we now have smartphones equipped with Twitter, allowing people to let friends and family know they're OK.

Some of New York's best chefs took to Twitter to share information, pictures, and some storm-related activities (which included drinking and an impromptu jam session). Some Tweets are funny. Some poignant. But they all give us an idea of a long and scary night as seen through the eyes of some of our favorite toques.
