Could the severe last Feb have caused leaf drop?

Message from Mike coastal CT

What is strange about mine (MV -australis) is they normally are evergreen right into early January, then (depending on the winter) maybe half the leaves fall off (the other half remain solid green on the tree). This fall, it was all green up until maybe 2 weeks, ago, then about 70% of all the leaves looked the color of the ones Jeff posted...and fell off. It's not just mine, there is a huge one in front of the church not far from my street (normally evergreen all winter in most winters)...but same thing, most of it's leaves have turned yellow(ish) and fallen off. I do see many swelled buds, but I can't imagine they are going to open in December.

I just wonder...are some trees still recovering from last Feb.
