My battery is in the trunk so possibly I had more leeway ..important thing is the CCA number, bigger the better for frosty mornings and short drives. My battery is usually fitted to large deisel trucks so the battery guy told me. :)

You did well to find indoor storage. Makes a big difference.

Try keeping a multimeter on the car. It will easily fit in the glovebox. More useful than the Tina Turner Audio takes.
You can quickly check battery voltage at any time then. Saves lots of time in the long run.
It’s typical for batteries to die as the temperature drops as it has done recently.
