better now in your driveway than later in the snow out in a parking lot. If it was that close to failure it would have been soon. I think you got lucky.

My battery decided to give out several years ago 10 pm, leaving on a long trip next morning early. But I felt lucky also. could have lasted 12 more hours, until at a rest stop middle of nowhere. It gave out at the fuel station across street from Walmart. I usually avoid that place, but they were open and there.
