OKLAHOMA CITY -- It’s rainy. It's empty... It's not the typical atmosphere you want for your Thanksgiving Day.

But some live for this experience.

"I came to buy TV," shopper Gaurav said.

"Oh I got here at 11 o'clock last night waiting for a TV," Michelle Toy said.

Both shoppers wanted to make sure they got the 49 inch TVs that are $280 off for Black Friday. Although, Michelle Toy admitted she wasn't sure how many were available or if she even needed to be there so early.

"I don't even know, but I knew I was going to be the first one!"

She geared up for an overnight stay at the Best Buy near 59th and May to make sure she would be one of the first inside.

"Wrestling tournament slash hospital slash staying out here all night in the cold," Toy said.

This wasn't Toy's first time to camp out for a good buy.

She said she looks for the best deals well ahead of time so she can choose the ones that can get her the biggest bang for her buck.

"I have nothing better to do. Nothing else is going to be open."

She took her son to the store, and they kept watch on each other overnight.

Toy said she was a bit on edge.

"I've gone this far so, obviously, it went well."

Another shopper said he got in the line early because he heard there were only a select few televisions available.

"We have a four day weekend, so I can spend one full day buying a TV, actually," Gaurav said.

Just two hours after sunrise Thanksgiving morning, five people were already braving the cold, the wind, and the rain. They were making sure their chance for a nice Christmas present didn't disappear.

"It's not a big price to pay. I'll have plenty of time to sleep when I'm six feet under. Until then I'm going to have fun," Toy said.

Best Buy closes at 1 a.m. Black Friday.
