Aug. 17 (UPI) -- San Antonio's water department may have solved the mystery of the water spouting tree in a resident's backyard but that hasn't stopped the curiosity seekers.
The so-called weeping tree stopped weeping when the water supply was turned off to the house. City officials say the tree had tapped into an active water line running to a sink in a shed in the resident's backyard. The city said the water also tested positive for chlorine residue, reports the San Antonio Express-News.
But the visitors' flow hasn't stopped. "I tell them all how it is, and they still want it," said the homeowner. "I figure if they are still that strong in their faith, knowing all that, then go on."
People stubbornly cling to their sky daddy beliefs in the face of logic and reason!
There is now a "Do Not Enter" spray-painted sign on the chain link fence around the driveway.
Water started leaking non-stop from the tree three months ago and for a while there were no logical explanations.
"I pray it's from God," said one visitor. "And nothing will be false here. How can water go up a tree?"
It is not clear what the city, or the homeowner, plans to do next.
