Bad idea during a natural disaster would be....
You tell them after so while the power is out you can have all kinds of sex with nothing else to do then tell them.
Dancing naked in the streets.
Calling 911 asking about the power, noise complaint about someone using a generator, someone hunting with *gasp* a gun to feed their family as there is no food at stores, etc etc
I would stay off the main roads and travel fast and light.
Living within range of it.
Go out side with a gun and try to kill the storm
Having too much to drink and passing out.
Telling your spouse you want a divorce.
