My dad sent me an action shot of him proudly wearing the sixth hat. Behind him you can see the snow Vancouver Island got this week.
The island doesn't normally get snow very often or for very long, even though it is part of Canada. (The island is near Vancouver and Seattle. Here's a map of the province from Tourism British Columbia that's clear, though slightly out of date for place names; Vancouver Island is outlined with a large box.) This year forecasters are predicting a particularly cold winter there this year.
