|I got one suggestion .
Take them (if not totaly frozen) and plant them in a seperate bed. And the ones that grow use as green onions !
I take onions that start to rot and plant them in my garden for fresh green onions. So...try it ! What you got to loose ?
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|Welcome to NGA, @Sharonr !
I'm pretty sure it won't hurt anything if you till the old onions into the ground in the spring; at least, I've never noticed any problems from doing that in my garden.
If you just leave them in place for now, you may find that they start sprouting early in the spring and you can pull them up, before you till the garden, to use for green onions, as Philip suggested... no need to monkey with transplanting.
