How long will food and milk last in a refrigerator without power if I don't open the door?

We just had a major storm here in St. Louis and I'm currently one in half a million people without power nor a time table as to when it will be restored. (I'm posting from my sidekick) Unlucky for me, I just went shopping last night and now the freezer and fridge are stocked with food and milk. I've heard that it should keep cold for a long time if I don't open the doors, but I was wondering how long exactly will it keep the food and milk good? Thanks!
