Default Car keeps dying

During the summe I got an optima yellow top battery. So the batt should be good, however I noticed as it was getting chilly in the fall my power starting getting weird. My car died a few times, jumped it and than no problem for a bit. I thought maybe the alt was screwey but we checked it out, no problem.

Than about a month ago, same problem. It was like SUPER COLD in MA. Than for a month, it cleared up. Now its getting warmer, the car is dying a lot. I've jumped it like 4 times the past 2 weeks.

What is your take on this? Weather related? My friends and I think there is a short somewhere. When I have time and its warm, going to see if can locate it.

For now a battery back to jump start my car is my best friend.
