My tomatoe plants got nipped by a late snow & frost. Minor damage, but should I prune off the damaged parts?

Yes, pinch or cut off the obviously frosted leaves and stems. Tomato plants will usually develop new branching stems and leaves if they are lightly nipped by frost. The cold will set them back a little but they should make up for lost time once the weather warms up. Good luck with your tomatoes!
