On the radio this morning they relayed a story that Frederick County, MD was faced with a water shortage. They hired geologists to determine the best places to dig wells, no luck. They finally hired dowsers who, equipped with dowsing rods made from cherry wood (I guess it was an important detail as they specifically mentioned it), located a spot where they drilled for water and were successful.
I can’t find any verification of this in any of the news sites I go to. My questions are:
-Did this really happen? “Oldies 100” isn’t typically my most trusted news source.
-How was it done- random luck? Wouldn’t they have the same odds as the failed geologists?
