Before Armageddon...

If you live on Pensacola Beach, before Armageddon be sure to stop by Blockbuster and rent a few videos.

From Tuesday morning's Pensacola News Journal:
At noon, Newkirk held onto a wooden rail at the top of his 35-foot-tall lookout tower and watched the effects of the storm make their final push through the beach.

"It really hasn't been that bad," he said.

Newkirk's wife, Susan, and his daughter, Christy, were watching the movie "Million Dollar Baby" and waiting for the winds to subside. The family dog, Sinbad, sat in the front yard and barked as winds reaching 50 mph howled.

"I haven't been able to get him to come inside,'' Newkirk said.

At the eastern end of the island on Panferio Drive, Burt Graham also rode out the storm in his beach home. He still had power at 1 p.m. Monday. His wife watched a movie inside while he monitored the beach from his deck.
