In San Diego they are all electric Smart cars and I use them sometimes, but monopolizing the charging infrastructure is not cool. For over 24 hours they occupied all the available spaces. Two were not even plugged in. The other two had long since finished charging.
So, are they in violation of the CA law and subject to fine/towing? Hmmm, in any case, since these cars are so small, if I really needed the charge I'd just park behind one, pull the cord over and start charging. Of course, I'd stay near or in the car.

They would be if any of those spaces had the requisite signage, which I've yet to see on ANY EV charging location. Worse, Car2Go was part of the original planning of the Blink installs and are "official" as far as Blink is concerned. There were complaints early on, and the result was the previously mentioned arrangement to be able to move cars and not get charged for doing their job for them.

I wonder if they test EVSEs by burying them in snow for a while?

Ahhh whats a little snow, you can still get close enough to plug in and wipe off the EVSE to start it :)

I have had our plugged in blizzard conditions outside at a chargpoint location and it worked fine. I also was plugged in during a rather large thunderstorm, that made me wonder if I shouldn't unplug the car....

I do not get this... why would anyone pile up sand around the public EVSE's? At least the sand is pretty and white. Our beach sand here in San Diego has lots of decomposing kelp in it so not so clean.

Most of it fell at temps near zero, making it very light, so it behaves very much like sand, forming drifts and dunes. Even when it's not snowing, the wind blows it into trenched pathways and driveways, re-filling them. We're used to snow, and are equiped for it, but with so much, so fast, and no melt off, we run out of places to put it.
