Minneapolis and St. Paul: We're shrinking!

The U.S. Census Bureau came out with updated population numbers that showed Minneapolis and St. Paul had declining population numbers. What a bummer.
Where are people actually moving? The numbers could surprise you, considering they are some of the places we'd least like to live. Rochester, the state's only other city topping 100,000 residents, increased an estimated 12,771 since 2000, a 16-percent increase. They have a estimated total population of 100,413. We'd like to give a high-five to the Mayo Clinic for their likely assistance on that one.
St. Cloud is also booming: Estimated at 66,948, up from 59,107 in 2000.
