March 13 weather extremes: Blizzard of 1993 and 2012 80-degree heat (POLL)

Last year on this date, it was 81 degrees in Washington, D.C. in the midst of a heat wave that presaged the warmest March on record. But 20 years ago on the 13th, the Blizzard of 1993 socked the area.

If you had a time machine and could go back, which weather event would you choose? Last year’s 81 degrees or the 7-13 inches of snow that fell from the 1993 March Superstorm?

Vote below.
