The Leaning Tower of Texas





An eye-catching water tower stands along Interstate 40 in Groom, Texas. The tower leans about 10 degrees, looking as if it is about to topple over.  The lean isn't due to a geological shift or human error. The tower leans intentionally -- intended to attract travelers to a now-defunct truck stop.  Such marketing works. It caught my attention, and if there were still a truck stop, I likely would have stopped.
