We're Number 18! We're Number 18!

Uhaul ranks Carbondale at number 18 in its list of growth cities with a population between 10,000 and 50,000. At first I thought this was based on the sheer number of rentals in the city and given the problems with the state budget and the decline in attendance at SIUC I thought it was due to the number of people renting a Uhaul to move out of the city.

Nope, Uhaul bases its number on the difference between one way trips originating in the city and terminating there. It appears we have more people renting a trailer to move here than they do to leave.
