This week began with a snowstorm that helped usher in the new year, followed by a blizzard of reminders of last year’s Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The Senate is back, and the House will return in earnest next week as 2022 gets going in Washington. Here’s a look at the week in photos as captured by CQ Roll Call’s photojournalists:
