Default Added priming sugar and can't bottle tonight.

Okay so I just added my priming sugar to the bottling bucket, then racked off my beer into said bucket...

...and i just remembered my bottling equipment is at MY house, a half hour away.

I can come back and do it in 24 hours, but will that be all right? Is it gonna blow? Should I have a blowoff tube? Or do I have to drive all the way home and back tonight to do it?

A good portion of the bottling sugar will be gone by the time you get around to bottling tomorrow. I'd cover it up, give it a day or two for the yeast to ferment out what's there now and then add another dose of bottling sugar and bottle.
