No, it was not a wet day. However, I did wash the car the night before.

I don't think the alternator is bad. It should last more than 45k miles. At least 100 - 150 k (at least if it's new).
I was reading a thread for alternator and came across one that talked about the electrical stuff in the box on the passenger side of the car near the a pillar. I wonder if I have a water intrusion up there.
Otherwise I am going to start checking for loose connections.
