Does anyone know if I can tap tap onto the bonding/grounding clips on my pool pumps to ground a gas powered generator? Hurricane Irene coming and may need to run generator for sump pump in basement.

Bond is not ground.

Right outside the meter to your house should be your ground rod. If you need an extension, I suggest booster cables for jump starting a car.
