While most of us were sleeping, some were braving the elements to make sure your commute to school or work is a safe one.
Trucks with the Department of Transportation have worked hard the past couple of days spraying the roads with over 60,000 gallons of salt brine.
Crews spent all day Thursday preparing the roadways for Friday's potential wintry mix. Roger Carpenter, the road supervisor for the D.O.T says if the roads get too bad, he'll break out the snow plows and one more trick of the trade.
While snow is not reported on Eastern Carolina roadways, it's important to note that bridges and overpasses could very well be click. Drivers are urged to use caution.
