Getting deeper into winter

Getting deeper into winter
Getting a deeper look at the winter conditioning

Got out into the garage with my flir thermal camera when the ambient was in the teens to get a deeper look at the conditioning process.
Looks like the heating last longer and may cycle more frequently .
Waited for the time when a conditioning cycle was active to capture some temperatures
The pump is to the passenger side of the under hood area
saw over 70 degrees in the hoses but with the ambient at 20 I expect the fluids will be at 80 or more range
The run time per cycle is definitely getting longer as it gets cooler and i have confirmed that the cycles
consume the same energy from the battery when the car is unplugged .
