Default Storing in keg after cold crash

So my fridge is full of kegged beer right now, major problem, I know. I just started cold crashing an ESB for kegging in two days. Will I skunk the ESB if I keg it and leave it out of the fridge until I have room? I plan on purging it of CO2. Also, I am borrowing fridge space at my parents house, and would leave it there but I only have one CO2 bottle.

Thanks guys

True "skunking" is the result of light-struck hop compounds. Doesn't apply to kegging. Flush the head space with CO2 and you can park the keg for as long as needed, noting that with the passage of time some characters will attenuate...

Cheers!
