When I was growing up, I used to see the occasional house wrap their yews and other similar evergreens in burlap for the winter. I haven't seen that recently. I guess if you can't deal with unsightly foliage until the new growth appears, it might be worth it. Otherwise, yews should be bulletproof here.
I would think the buds would still be fine in a zone 4 rated plant with zone 6 temperatures. But the cold duration with this is another factor that can't be ignored. A lot of people stayed below freezing for a long time.
