According to this article in Forbes, if you're a married couple with 2 kids, it costs more for you to live in Cleveland than it does in Chicago. Does that strike anyone else as odd?
Other cities that it's cheaper to live in include Orlando, San Antonio, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Austin, and St Louis.
If that's true then it's no wonder that people are leaving Cleveland in droves. Not only does the weather suck, but it's apparently expensive to live here.
