Up here in the north, a person can get pretty stir crazy staying in too much during the winter. Out of boredom, I often spend extra hours working on NetFlow and sFlow as I generally find it more fun then watching TV or playing video games. Both of which I like but like many activities, they can be over done.

The days following Christmas, I found myself spending way too much time in the house with my wife & kids. I decided to try and think of things I can do with my girls. Because of the snow, we decided to go out for a bit of sledding at Gowen Park in Sanford, Maine.

Here is a short video of me and my daughter on a short ride. I hope it makes you smile and appreciate a little snow. 🙂


Lets all hope for more of the white stuff. I want to go snowmobiling!

Michael is one of the Co-founders and the former product manager for Scrutinizer. He enjoys many outdoor winter sports and often takes videos when he is snowmobiling, ice fishing or sledding with his kids. Cold weather and lots of snow make the best winters as far as he is concerned. Prior to starting Somix and Plixer, Mike worked in technical support at Cabletron Systems, acquired his Novell CNE and then moved to the training department for a few years. While in training he finished his Masters in Computer Information Systems from Southern New Hampshire University and then left technical training to pursue a new skill set in Professional Services. In 1998 he left the 'Tron' to start Somix which later became Plixer.
