Lack of lighting

Hey all,
Long story short, my power supply for my LED's had an unfortunate accident during a water change. I'm afraid because of the holiday weekend I won't be able to get another one till thursday or friday of this week. The real kicker is i'm 900+ miles away from my tank on an internship.

I have a clam, and mostly SPS, what are the chances they will be OK till then? I don't have any supplemental lighting laying around. Should I have my roommate get a crappy PC fixture or something?

They should be OK but I would jump on it as soon as I got home.
