Are You Ready? – – – Advice for Winter Driving

I decided to drive from 2-Day TapRooT® Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Course in Leamington Spa, England, up through the mountains in Scotland and over to the 5-Day TapRooT® Course in Aberdeen, Scotland. I left on Friday to visit Hadrian’s Wall. On Saturday, I drove up into the Scottish Mountains. Sure enough, in the mountains I saw my first snowflake of the year. (Pictorial proof below.)
