The time one spends at home with friends and massive quantities of alcohol. This is usually preceded by a hurricane which one did not evacuate from. Usually accompanied by a lack of electrical power. Good times.
Heather, "Ok, so we have two cases of Corona, two cases of Lone Star and a few bottles of wine, will that be enough for our hurrication?"

Lisa, "Yeah, that should be enough, however we don't have any ice, water, batteries or candles. We'll be great."

When you are so used to evacuating for a hurricane that never comes that you use the event as an excuse for a vacation or as a "Hurri-cation"
My family looks forward to evacuating during hurricane season every year so we can plan our "Hurri-cation."

Similar to staycation; when you can't travel or go to work because of a hurricane and are forced to stay at home, relaxing and feeling happy that you don't have to go to work
A: Hey dude, how are you coping with this terrible hurricane?

B: It's a drag that the trains and buses aren't running, but the good news is that I can't go to work! I'm spending my hurrication sleeping, eating and drinking everything I have.

HURRICATION, (hur-i-KAY-shun), n.

The unexpected day off of work or school resulting from a nearby hurricane, producing enough rain and wind to shut everything down for a day or two, but not enough of a direct hit to cause damage or worry.
Hurricane Helen was only a category one storm but it was enough to have a few days of hurrication from school!
