Power's out, how long will the cold last?

Power went out... right as I'd gone to the grocery. I put all the must-stay-cold stuff away anyhow because the stuff I'd bought was worth more than what was already in there. So, it's been opened once, what was put in was still frozen/cold from the grocery. I'm not opening it again. How long can I expect stuff to still be good for?

It'd be nice if I had a better idea when it was coming back, but unfortunately, no such luck. I'm hoping it's not much longer, but given that it *could* be late tonight or tomorrow, I'd just like to have an idea what to expect. The fridge and freezer are reasonably full but mostly of various leftovers that I won't be heartbroken about losing, but the groceries I just bought will be more annoying.
