My tomatoes are just ripening and I'm leaving town for two weeks!

It has taken a ridiculously long time for my tomatoes to finally get ripe. Finally, I've got a number of them in "orange" stage, and of course, I'm about to leave town for a two-week trip. I want to be able to eat these tomatoes when I get back and not have the squirrels steal them. What's my best strategy? Pick 'em now and put them in the fridge? Leave them on the plants and hope for the best? Pick them and leave them on the counterop (I'm afraid I'd come back to a heap of rotting fruit in that case)?
