Alvin, it is indeed surprising to see a Rhododendron danmaged. These plants in the upper reaches of the Appalachians see zone 5 lows or below at times, especially the Blacks, Smokies, Nantahalas, Blue Ridge, Cumberlands and others, and do no seem to mind. I would say wind and desiccation from wind is more damaging than temperatures. Just an opinion. Combine wind wih low temps and you have a formula for death in a lot of BLEs
