    I was going to post about my sense of deja vu, but then I felt like I already had.

    Sorry about the double post. New to the forum and thought the first was entered before I got authorization to post. Thanks everyone for the ideas.

    That's a good idea. Maybe something like this with the handle removed and slit along the length so it is open at the bottom and will fit over the charge port door. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0006IXNDW If you do it please report back with a photo. Thanks.

    Easy to do! Just swap cars, putting your Volt inside the garage.

    Or move south and avoid the snow permenently.

    I got a thick plastic bag from work and will give the magnet idea a go. But thank goodness, the snow has stopped the last few days so I can wait before trying it out.
