The Calm Before The Storm? WI Capitol building almost empty

What a difference a day makes. Last night the Wisconsin State Capitol looked like this:

This morning we hear that there are only a few dozen protesters left.
Journal Sentinel: Madison - After a wild and raucous night at the State Capitol, the scene inside the building Thursday morning looks just like it was a few weeks ago when protesters camped out overnight.
At 6:30 a.m., there were dozens of people who stayed the night and were camped out in various locations in the building.
Of particular concern to police are a few dozen protesters who spent the night in the antechamber of the Assembly. The Assembly is scheduled to go into session at 11 a.m. Thursday to consider the bill on collective bargaining that the Senate approved last night in mere minutes.
A number of protesters said they had no intention of leaving the area Thursday.[...]
Outside the Capitol, the scene looks just like any other normal business day. The driver of one car was slowly driving around the Capitol Square, honking. But his horn and the sound of buses running routes were the only sounds outside.
Did they all go home to get a good night's rest so they can return to raise some hell today or is that they realize the jig is up?

I would have thought that the protesters would have done all that they can to block the Assembly from voting today. Once the Assembly votes, the only thing left is Walker's signature and we all know he is going to sign it.

We will see if things remain quiet as the Assembly vote nears.
