It's slowly getting warmer in Myrtle Beach. Not that much warmer, but the ice and snow should be gone soon.
Lately, Mal has been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf very consistently ever since dropping Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, which was pretty limited in what you could do.
Stephen, sadly, has remained really busy over the years, so he can't join Mal in her Animal Crossing adventures. Instead, he just lets Mal come into his town to loot everything and shop at his stores.
