Sorry boss, can't make it in. They took all the bikes away

This, the  Broad St & Bridge Station, is probably what the 14 other stations that reported being empty during our morning survey look like.

Our guess is that this is an interesting glimpse at what the bike-share operators do when it's NOT snowing -- that as these stations emptied out, they would be rebalanced by crews with truckloads of bikes. But not last night. Every one of the 14 stations has been empty for 12 hours or more as of 7 am

The NotSpots are kind of a theoretical problem, given the 15F temp and the slush on the streets (but we did spot a delivery guy).

The interesting question is how long will it take the operators to recover.
