If you look around you will see a lot of winter injury on rhodys and also on some other evergreens. The temperatures went from moderate to single digits one weekend in January and the plants were not able to go into their dormancy as early as they should have because the weather was pretty moderate last fall and early winter. Just cut off any dead growth, give them some fertilizer and they should recover eventually.
