No Gas, and right on time.

The Daily Mail reports:- [Source]
Europe plunged into energy crisis as Russia cuts off gas supply via Ukraine. Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Romania, Croatia and Turkey all reported a halt in gas shipments from Russia through Ukraine. The European Union in Brussels called the sudden cut-off to some of its member countries ‘completely unacceptable’.

You bloody idiots in the EU, US, and the UK governments caused this and now you’ll reap the whirlwind. Or to be more accurate poor sods like me and the wife.

With winter really just starting in the UK, typically middle of Jan to middle of March, I’m thinking BOY it’s going to get cold for us.

Shops will start closing as power plants fail, and anything heated by gas will grind to a halt.

No power generation is next and everything the preppers have been saying would happen is now going to come about.

Right to get practical.
We are using 5 liters of fuel a week although that will rocket if the electricity dies as we use that to keep the boat warm between heating with oil so I’m now working on 15 liters of diesel a week for:-
Jan 15 to Mar 15 = 60 days, 8 weeks 5 days, call it 9 weeks.

I need 135 liters.

I’m guessing the shops will start closing within the next 10 days so during that time I need to provision for another 8 weeks. Why so long? Because once the crisis REALLY gets going, the overspill will carry on for a month or so AFTER it has been resolved.

Money? 60 days should be enough for food and fuel.
Meds. Those will have to be obtained tomorrow for 90 days.

Christ what a potential nightmare.

    Probably a dumb question, but since I don’t own a boat…does the fuel tank on your boat hold 135 liters or do you store it in portable containers. This is the first I’ve heard of this, thanks for the update..

    • Yep we’ve got a fuel tank and it holds 80 liters YET like our car, I never let it drop beneath 1/2 full.
      So fuel acquisition once again may be the most important thing in our lives.
      After all it’s no good having shelter if you can’t keep it warm.

  2. I have been offline and disconnected from media for a couple days. Seems like I have some catching up to do!

    • You’re OK, and it could just blow over before it gets going.
      Except I don’t think so. Plan for the worst has always been my way.
      Kick a person enough and eventually even the meek will react.
      Russia ain’t one to pussy foot round.
      As said before, I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to react.

    just checking in..tried to google and see if this is still going on? (Russia cutting way back on gas delivery in Europe and if it has affected heating prices, etc?

    • So far any disruption has been avoided by the Northern stream and out via Scandinavia.
      With only 43 days left to spring, it’s not going to impact on us at all (I hope).
      Still as usual the main stream press aren’t saying a word.

      Yet there’s a thing though, Spring.
      The natural jump date for all things military as it gives them all summer to “PLAY”.
      And by them I’m talking NATO.

        You are a more reliable source of information than anything else on line 😉 How do you find out things like the are rerouting “by the Northern stream and out via Scandinavia”? DM

      • Three sources. Alternative news sites (there are many of those) the EU news, and the global stock market ticker tape (a surge in profits from the gas line pumping firms) convinced me the “rumors” were right.
