Bob, I am SURE you are aware that Constanza is about twice the altitude above sea level as Jarabacoa.
I know exactly how much higher ( 2364 feet) and the temperature is normal only a spread of 4-5 degrees. My wife's family is from there (el rio). I doubt there was snow in the actual valley of Constanza but in some of the higher valleys close to constanza.

Well, knowing that you live in Jarabacoa I knew you would know. I have often spent part of a day in Jarabacoa and then drove the road over to Constanza and always sensed a noticeable difference.

I was complaining over the weekend when it was
64 degrees outside here in Santiago on Saturday
morning. These warm winters are one of the main
reasons I choose to call this place home.

I've done winter in both Western and Eastern European
countries....
No thanks.

I have yet to be in minus degrees here in the DR. I spent Christmas in El Rio about 8 years ago and it was only 6 C and it felt pretty damn cold.
