Look, I get that you feel that it’s too damp here for your taste, but the data shows that relative to other cities in the country this is not among the most humid.

I accept that you don’t like the weather. If it becomes unbearable, you might consider a move to the mountains or desert.
I'm not sure who this post was aimed at. I think GrandViking was simply highlighting that many people often associate humidity with "feeling humid," whereas dew point is actually a better measure for how humid it feels to most people.

Ok. I guess I misunderstood the point.

You've got Dinkytown and the state capitol in St. Paul, with more reasonably-sized lakes in Minneapolis for walking and biking. Madison is nice, but it's hardly a full-service metro area with good jobs for the masses.

So good to see someone else who understands that relative humidity is practically meaningless!

the true measure of humidity is grains of moisture contained within a cubic foot of air, all other references make someone sound like a TV weatherman

I can tell from my experiences that so many businesses are opening up. When I first came in 2011, I felt Minneapolis was behind as far as chains and franchises. Now, we have a CVS, Dave and Busters, Dunkin Donuts, Popeyes, Wahlburgers just opened at MOA. Remember, we used to only have 1 Popeyes and 1 Dave and Busters. I live in Edina and we just got a Shake n Shack opened. A new hotel was just recently. New apartment buildings constantly being built.

Minneapolis is growing quickly, but it's not "growing faster" than the rest of the Midwest. Columbus is the fastest-growing city in the Midwest and is growing faster than Minneapolis. Minneapolis grew 10% between 2010-2017, whereas Columbus grew by 12%. Madison is probably the 3rd fastest-growing city in the Midwest, as it grew by 9%. Additionally, the Twin Cities metro is also not the fastest growing in the Midwest. The Des Moines metro area is growing faster than the Twin Cities. Why? I'm not sure. Minnesota has the best economy in the Midwest, but we are not growing as fast as states like Colorado or Texas. After all, MN is at risk of losing one of its electoral votes after the 2020 Census.

It's growing the fastest in absolute numbers, not percentages.
Percentages can be deceiving. You could say that a town of 500 people that jumped to 800 is the fastest growing in the Midwest.

I think it will unless something catastrophic happens.

Economy, scenery, affordable housing (as far as large cities go), education.

People that live here their whole lives really have no idea what the rest of the country is like, very center of the universe feeling. There's a lot here, if only the social atmosphere was better we could tolerate the winter.
