Y–Yesterday

Yesterday, on my X blog, there was an X on a map of the United States. That X marks the center of the conterminous U.S. or the contiguous U.S. (both adjectives meaning “sharing a common boundary.”)  Its position as located in a 1918 survey is located about 2.6 miles (4.2 km) northwest of the center of Lebanon, Kansas, approximately 12 miles south of the Kansas-Nebraska border.
