To the untrained eye, this may look phallic...

However, to the eye of a sophisticate, a patriot, and a lover of fine things, this is an obelisk of the greatest magnitude. It's a tribute to victory, an homage to excellence, a testament to the fortitude of the human spirit. Truly, a triumph of the will.

Whoops, I guess I shouldn't be mentioning "Triumph of the Will" while I'm in Germany. (I tried to find a link to the actual video, but unsurprisingly I got the message "This video is not available in your country.")

Also, since I promised photos of snow angels and snow forts, here's a feast for your eyes:

Admittedly, it's a pretty sad fort, but I think I made up for it with my epic monument above. I almost didn't put up the picture, but I didn't want to welch on my promise like that. Incidentally, I know a few people named Welch and I can't imagine they're too happy when someone uses that expression, though apparently it's a slur against Welsh people so I guess they'd have more cause to be angry.

Anyway, as I fully expected, it was quite a successful weekend in the snow.
