8000 gallons, and compare that to more inland counties, that is 23,000 gallons of brine they used there. the reason is because the salt water in the air already creates a melting effect on a law of the snow as it lays across the roadway. a little bit ago we saw that plows getting out because the snow accumulation has reached an inch. we will move up the outer banks to kitty hawk to give you conditions there. that will be at 5:00. >> matt will be moving around and we have a lot of moving pieces today. we called in a lot of resources to give you a perspective on how things are looking. >> and busy time of the evening for traffic. chris is on the road with the
