Winter vs. Allseason Tires in the DC Area

Hey guys I picked up my 2011 coupe in June and I'm loving it so far. I just wanted to know if any of you in the DC area use allseason tires or if you use winter tires. I was thinking of getting the Blizzak winters or Continental DWS all season 255 front 275 rear for my ZCP wheels.

I ask because I really won't drive the car in the snow as I can work from home or use my fiance's SUV which we will be buying next month (Honda Pilot, X5, or MDX...her choice) She works from home everyday so I could use the SUV whenever needed. Are winter tires a must in DC or could I get away with allseasons? Please weigh in on difference in the ride, handling, etc. of the two if you have experience with them.

Thanks for your help in advance!
