None of our praying mantis nests have hatched? Is this the result of the bad winter?

None of mine have hatched either and I keep them in two locations. I am not ready to write them off yet, though it looks like winter has taken its toll on the egg cases. I did find several in the weeds last week and they had not hatched either. Keep them safe for now and give them a bit more time.
