Hazelwood Patch Editor Candace Jarrett reflects on experiencing the EF2 tornado that ripped through Hazelwood Wednesday. Where were you when the sudden storm hit?
As I wrap up my almost 24-hour work day, I'm finally able to sit back and think about the fact I survived a tornado on Wednesday. You always look at media coverage and movies where natural disasters happen, and I don't know about you, but I've asked myself time after time: "What would I do if I were in that situation?" First, I would pray to the good Lord above. Second, I would whip out my camera and go into journalist mode. Third, when all the chaos was over, I would ensure my family was OK.

After three years in Florissant, Trish Layton moved her boutique to 1522 Caulks Hill Road in St. Peters to accomodate her growing business.
Trish Layton fell in love with everything about weddings at the age of 16. She was working for a catering company back then and learned to fold napkins, set a table and how to cut and serve a 10-tier wedding cake. As an adult, the Florissant resident has worked as a hairdresser and with cosmetic companies. She missed being apart of wedding planning, so she volunteered to help her church with floral arrangements.
