Pruning roses - how early?

Good morning on the second day of spring! It's supposed to be great weather today - sunny and 60F where I am in zone 6. My ground is not frozen and crocus are blooming and daffs about to. I see leaf buds about to open on a Honeysuckle and it's intertwined with roses and I need to trim those. I'm not ready to add compost or alfalfa meal yet, I have to replenish my supplies. And we may still get some cold nights in the 20s or even more snow, so is that a reason to wait to start pruning? When do all of you prune?
