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.
