Cleveland

While I sympathize with your view of Cleveland, I have to note that glacier ice (and snow) once covered Ohio from Cincinnati to Conneaut, excluding the southeast quarter.  The source of that snow and ice was the area around Lake Simco, north of Toronto in Ontario, an area that is currently sharing New England's snow woes.  The Miam ice stream advanced at about 390 feet per year, so covering most of the state took awhile.  It took about 5000 years for the ice to melt off.  Ice stands at each of the moraines was about 100 to 300 years.  One could live next to the glacier for one's entire life and not realize anything was happening.

About Cleveland:  it was named for Moses Cleaveland, the Western Reserve Company's chief surveyor.  Note the difference in spelling.  They misspelled his name when they named the city.  He stayed in the Western Reserve for two seasons and then quit to find better-paying work.  His entire crew quit with him.  All things considered, though; they did a good job, surveying sometimes up to 20 miles of line a day.  The accuracy is about the same as one would get using a hand-held compass and measuring distances by pacing.
