Default Blue sky mining

I've got a photo with a very washed-out sky -- almost white. The rest of the photo's pretty good.

Is there an easy way to make the sky bluer? It should be easy to select the area I'd need to make blue, and it's a relatively small area.

The client wants me to just lop off the top of the photo to get rid of the pale sky, but I thought I'd see if I can fix it first.

I've got some software I bought a year or so ago (one of those Andromeda bundles) but never got around to installing. Would any of these help? Nik Color Efex Pro, Splat, Xenofex, LensDoc Filter. (There are also some other filters in the bundle, but I'm sure they aren't applicable here -- Varifocus, Perspective, and Redeye.)

The job doesn't go to press until early next week, so I would have some time to fiddle with new software over the weekend.
