Boxwood can suffer from winter burn. In Michigan, where I live, winter hit early with temps in the teens overnight. This leads to more damage because the shrub hasn't had the time it needs to steel itself for winter. Here are measures you can take next year to protect your boxwoods: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/boxwood/boxwood-winter-protection.htm.
