Help! Sago palms and dog tails suffered frost and wind damage

I live in coastal NC. We went away for a week while the weather was warm, but we could not come back for a month due to unforeseen circumstances. I didn't cover my cactus garden with burlap, expecting to be back before the weather changed, but while we were away, we had very high winds and temperatures below freezing.

Can anyone provide suggestions about ways to save any of these plants? I have some hope because there seems to be green growth on one of the sago palms; on the other one, there is no growth but the middle veins are still green. Should I trim the brown leaves off now or wait until spring? Should I cover them now, although the temperatures are warm? Should I water them or fertilize them?
