Anyone have an idea how to convert grain measurements (i.e. cups) in to weight?

I have a kitchen scale coming, but it's not here for today's brew day. I have some varieties of homemade Crystal Malt, and I want to measure how much I'm putting in today's brew.
Tap #1: Dirty Blonde Ale, Tap #2: On Sale Pale Ale,
Tap #3: Audible IPA
Primaries: #1 Midnight Molasses Porter, #2 Kitchen Sink DIPA, #3 Hellish Hefe Hell
Secondaries: #1 Nocturnal Brown Ale, #2 Drunken Irishman Ale

Just wright down how many cups you use and figure it out when you get your scale.

I just checked for you. A cup of Maris Otter weighs 4 oz.
I don't know if that is the same for all but that is as close as your going to get.
