Actually, I never liked to use "Lower 48" or "South 48"

So which continent are they on?



North America, like the rest of Alaska...but CONUS normally means the Lower 48. The CON stands for contiguous.

Yeah, but the problem is what people call the "lower 48" is really the "middle 48" if you're looking at a map. <g>
