Many Texomans spent the day getting ready for a frigid night which had some hitting the stores to get the inside as well as the outside of their homes ready.
Texomans took to area stores to prepare for a frigid Friday night and items to help stay warm and toasty at home were a top priority.
Lowe's workers were busy helping customers find the perfect fit whether it was simply for warmth or warmth with a view.
But that wasn't all.
"They're coming for bib insulation. Pipe insulation. They're getting ready for salt rock and stuff. Firewood. Firewood's a big seller here, too," says Mark Sharp, who works at Lowe's.
Other big sellers were items to protect plants.
Plant experts say freezing temperatures are bad but add in gusting winds and that makes it worse.
That's why experts say when it comes to some of your plants prepare to take cover.
"If you still have tomatoes, peppers, you can go ahead and actually wrap them for the night to keep the frost off," says Beth Turlington, a member of the Wichita County Master Gardeners.
Meanwhile, workers at Faith Mission homeless shelter spent the day preparing for the cold in another way.
Managers say chilly temperatures cause more of the homeless to seek shelter here, which means more food will be cooked up and served up for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Other ways people prepared for the big chill tonight include stocking up on warm clothing, food and even items for their vehicles like de-icer and window scrapers.
