Half is cold, half not so much

DownEast.com’s trivia question was kind of fun today.

Where in Maine can you stand halfway between the equator and the North Pole?

Answer

In Perry. In 1888, U.S. Geological Survey employees in Maine, establishing a line of coastal “benchmarks,” placed an additional temporary marker at the point where the 45-degree line of latitude crosses Route 1 in Perry.
