Yesterday morning, after returning home on my backcountry skis, I used the tips of my ski poles to chip away the solid ice that was keeping me from opening the charge port door. Other times, with less severe ice, I've used a bank card or something similar.
Cross country skiing already? Man, I'm jealous! It will be another month - maybe more at this rate - before we see enough snow to ski.
Up until this year, I have always charged my Leaf overnight in the garage. Then this summer I bought a CMax Energi for my wife. Since we have a 1-car garage, and I can charge at work, she gets to park in the garage and I get to charge during the day at work. This is new territory for me. I'll probably have to rig something up to protect the door area.
