Sago Palm Got Too Cold

We had some extremely cold weather in SC, down to 14 degrees at night.  A few of my sago palms got frozen and now the branches/fronds are turning brown. How should I trim them, back to the base? Also, should I put them down in the basement for the rest of winter to baby them? What do you suggest?

I am sorry to hear about your plants. You will need to remove the brown fronds this spring, but only those, as they will not come back. Use sharp shears to do so. This article may help you with getting them to recover: [1]
