I am afraid my plumeria may have gotten too cold this winter. Here is what I have, any suggestions?

Yes, those tips have frozen. Take a sharp knife and a wad of paper towels with isopropyl alcohol, and start cutting; be sure to wipe the knife with the alcohol between cuts. As soon as you see completely white wood, you can stop. If you don't get all the rot as soon as possible, it can spread and travel right down the plant, killing the whole thing.
Good luck and keep us posted!

Here is the outcome of the pruning - I ended up having to prune another one as well. Below are the pics of what they look like today.

Thank you for your help!

Good recovery! Now you can step up watering, it is very much awake!
