100 Year Old NC House Advice

I have a house in NC built in 1920. There is a basement under half the house with a drainage pipe from a "chimney" like block structure built along the outside basement wall where ground water collects and drains through a pipe into a channel in the basement leading to a sump pump. My question - on a rare occasion when the power goes out, I want to "plug" the incoming pipe and then slowly drain once the power comes back on so that I don't have to invest in back-up power, connect a generator or lose anything stored in the basement. Am I crazy?
