Default Headlight bulb

Anybody ever have a headlight bulb work, then not work, then work again? I replaced my headlight bulbs on December 30 due to the left one being burned out. Then on Thursday I get another message on my DIC saying I have a low beam out. It end up being the same bulb as before. I call Carquest asking what the warranty for bulbs are and they said bring them in and they will swap them. I went to remove the bulb and notice it doesn't look burned out. I plug it back in and the bulb is working. I wiggled all the wires and the bulb didn't go back out. Then Friday morning I pulled into the store and I could see my headlights in a snow bank and watched the left one go out again. When I came back out and started the vehicle, the bulb was back on.

Does it sound like a bad bulb or an electrical issue? They are H11 bulbs so nothing strange. This is on a Volvo XC90 and I have no experience with these rigs. Once it gets nice out I can go over it and learn more about it.
