COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) - The cold snap could end up costing homeowners hundreds, even thousands of dollars. Many people spent a large amount of money on new landscaping thinking they were safe to start spring planting. Debbie Heckmann is one of them.

“We spent several thousand dollars,” said Heckmann, who’s proud of the work she’s done recently on her front and back lawns. But a return of old man winter  threatens new flowers and plants outside her Plano home.

“This is all new which I’m afraid I’ll probably lose tonight,” said Heckmann. She bought more flowers from a local nursery Monday despite predictions that Collin County could have its latest freeze ever overnight.

“I think it is crazy I thought I was ok,” she said.

Plant store owner Gary Cook said his nursery sold out of protective frost cloth within 15 minutes of opening. He and other employees of Calloways spent the day picking up wind blown trees outside and bringing tender flowers and ferns inside.

“We’ve had 3 days of 40 mile per hour winds,” said Cook.
