I'm trying to interpret the output from a "show log" on my Cisco 1760 router.  I'm trying to pinpoint exactly when my T1 went down, but I'm getting weird labels for the date/time.

7w2d: %CONTROLLER-5-UPDOWN: Controller T1 1/0, changed state to down (LOS detected)
7w2d: %CONTROLLER-5-UPDOWN: Controller T1 1/0, changed state to up

I did a clear log before I left work last night.  I've done a "show clock" and verified that the router is correctly syncing with NTP.  I don't understand why its saying "7 weeks 2 days" for all my log entries and I don't understand how to fix it.

Please advise.  Thank you
