Time Stood Still

Peering closely, I noted that the clock was stopped at about 6:35 . . . and indeed it didn’t move at all. Then I remembered why that time looked familiar . . . two blocks to the rear of St. Louis Cathedral sits Cats Meow, at the corner of Bourbon and St. Peter. Our webcams there – Bourbocam and Beadcam – sent their last images on the morning of Aug. 29, 2005, as Katrina’s rising wind blew out the electricity in the Quarter . . . 6:34:51 a.m. . . . that’s when the clocks stopped.

    Why didn’t Bush use his time-stopping powers sooner, to give everyone an opportunity to escape New Orleans? It’s a conspiracy, I tells ya.

    Seriously, there are few images more powerful than a stopped clock. Does anyone besides me recognize the significance of the clock reading “5:14”?

  5. Ken Summers says:

    That should have been “5:04”

    “Back to the Future”?
