The much-anticipated snowfall was accompanied with below-freezing temperatures, closing area public schools for three days. Please see more photos, A2.

Creating a church home // Pastor Jeffrey A. Lee Sr., left, is on a mission to turn the once roofless building at 2700 Q St. in Church Hill into a home for the church he founded, Spirit of God Ministries International. A full-time Pepsi salesman, Pastor Lee, 52, and his 20-member congregation are making progress, as the before and after photos show. The left photo was taken in September 2012, when the small congregation purchased the building from Greater St. Beulah Holiness Church for about $50,000. Since then, the congregation has spent another $50,000 transforming the exterior. The photo at right was taken Tuesday. Pastor Lee said the church’s next step is to redo the interior so it can be used for worship and other activities. Until that work is done, and there is no firm timetable as yet, he and his congregation will continue to hold services at the Our House community center in Mosby Court.
