However, the show's series producer admitted that he is "dreading" the prospect of strong winds for the show's 40th anniversary special.
Blackburn told BBC News: "A bit of wind and lots of rain, I'd be happy with that - it's the gale force that we're dreading."
Emmerdale's special edition will mark the first time a live soap episode has been shot completely on location.
Reflecting on the outdoor challenge, he added: "All the other live episodes have been based around a studio so obviously all their resources were there - all the equipment's there, all the power's there, the canteen's there.
"Things like the make-up and costume departments are there. They're not here [in the village]. Every single thing has to be brought in - the generators and entire departments from Emmerdale have got to be moved up here.
"We've got to feed the extras and transport them up here. It's a logistical and financial nightmare at every single level."
