Katrina, Day 7, 9:05 p.m.

A couple of five-year-old girls are outside on a swing set playing Entergy linemen. They say they're busy connecting down power lines so the news channel can come back on.

This is definitely a sign of the times.

A freaky, freaky sign of the times.

I should be back guarding the house by now, but am taking my chances to enjoy a hot meal with my sister, brother-in-law, an old friend from grade school, and their daughters (the ones pretending to be restoring power).

This is the first time I've seen a television actually on in a week. It's all reruns. Go figure.
