Blow outs and the big east coast storm potential problems

One potential problem coming up due to the big storm involving blowouts of systems................NO ELECTRICITY to run the controller , sure you can try to chase down valve boxes , that takes too long . TAKE ALONG GENERATOR . I dont want to lose a week of prime time doing blowouts , I bought the cheap little 700 watt generator from harbor freight tools just for emergencies and to have a light weight generator .

Another possible solution is a battery pack , to power each valve from the controller , this should be possible but how long would the batteries last .
