Hurricane Irene gave me a reason to bottle tomorrow. Nothing else to do. The problem is I checked my corn sugar and found that I only have about a 1/4 cup. The batch is roughly 4.5 gallons. Is it ok to add powdered sugar to get me to the correct amount? The brew is an original saison and all the numbers and samples are dead on. Should I put it off a day so I can get to the LHBS on Monday?

don't use powdered sugar. It has starches in it. Use plain old table sugar(cane).
