a barrel of pickles

Question

This is for you guys who are having trouble with the real hard stuff.     A farmer has a barrel of pickles weighing 100 pounds .  Pickles are 99% water .  He leaves the lid off of the barrel until the pickles are 98% water.   How much does the barrel of pickles now weigh.   

                          OK experts give the little guy a chance

Assuming the 99% refers to weight...

 

That seems like a ton of water to evaporate off.
