Freezer Down - Is Taq still good?

Our enzyme freezer went down over the weekend - even the coolers were at
room temp.  The most expensive thing we need to replace is Taq DNA
polymerase, but we're thinking it is probably still good, inasmuch as it
survives at 95C.  Does anybody else have experience in using Taq that was
at room temperature for a couple of days?
