a trip that starts off by evacuating from a natural disaster, but upon learning that family, home, neighbors are safe, morphs into a mini-vacation.
We left New Orleans because of the impending hurricane but it turned into an Evacu-cation
The time-place in between the forced removal from a city evacuation

After Katrina, I went on an "evacucation". First to a ranch in Texas, then to fancy beach hotels in Florida.

During Hurricane Gustav we went on an evacucation to Atlanta.
