Missing lugs?

I was driving around the other night and heard/felt some strange vibration from my rear P/S wheel. I get back home and I park, only to find two of my lug nuts missing.

I've gone around a few places around here and called (there aren't many auto parts stores in DC, and the ones that are in the city proper are in... undesirable areas) around, but no one has them in stock.

My question is - I can and will order some, but is it okay to do some driving as it is now? I'm supposed to be making a round trip to Fairfax (~30 miles each way) and another round trip to Leesburg (~40 miles each way) this weekend, and I don't have another car or anything to use.

take 1 lugnut off of 1 other wheel and you're good to go. I would check the other lugnuts on that one wheel to insure they are tight. Check the other lugnuts on that one wheel, at least.. Lugnuts dont loosen on their own...

Ahh, thanks. I'll do that until I can scrounge up some new ones.
