Good tips Buzzbee.
Not to nit pick, but I kind of doubt turning over a warm engine in the summer even comes close to the abuse a battery gets in the winter. In the winter you have motor oil like molasses, very little fuel vapor to start combustion, and a battery electrolyte where the ions really have to struggle to get from one plate to the next. All conspiring to pull max amps from the cell.
I would add:
Check your tires! Hydroplaning is not really a fun activity on a wet highway.
Check your rotors for uneven wear from the brake pads.
Listen for wheel bearing noise. Snow and slush seems to take them out.
Check fluid levels.
Park in the shade.
