No electricity for 36 hours. How do I tell if my food is still OK?

My electricity was out for about 36 hours which means the freezer and refrigerator lost power. All food in the freezer seemed to still be frozen after that time but how can I tell about food in the refrigerator?. I'm particularly concerned about dairy products and cheese. I also have some raw milk in glass bottles. Obviously I don't have a fridge thermometer and didn't open the door during the blackout to check anyway. The ambient room temp at the time of the blackout was about 70 degrees. It dropped to about 45 degrees during the night and rose to about 55 degrees the next day.
