For the past month or so, there has been a perpetual water spot on my porch, about three feet or so in diameter, even during the sunniest and warmest of weather. The porch is cement, several inches think, with no cracks. There is no leak in the roof. The water is always there. It freezes in cold weather, melts again, and is definitely not a stain. Any ideas as to what in the heck is going on here? Is there a broken pipe or spring, and even if there were, could the water get through all that concrete? The basement is downhill from the porch and there is no water there. Very, very strange stuff.

Don't discount a leaking pipe. Concrete is a very porous material, and water can easily find its way through several inches of it without to much difficulty.

Since it's not been there before, I'd say that it's either a broken pipe or a ghost.
