Does anyone think it is responsible?
According to the article below it seems like it's linked to earth tilting.

My boiler is a big floor standing balanced flue condensing boiler (whatever that is) It was the type recommended by the plumber when the heating was installed. It's 20 years old now and so far it has never let us down. I don't know why, but if we have strong winds coming in from the East, it sometimes blows the pilot light out. The main thing is it's working now. We had a huge electrical storm last night which hasn't been mentioned on TV. 2am the whole sky was lighting up with lightning flashes.

Re: Beast from the East

I was reading recently that drivers who venture out in 'red warning' areas are not insured. Has anyone else heard this?

We have similar boiler .BUT ours was installed in 1967. These old boilers were made to last ( cast iron heat exchangers ) Apart from the thermostat there are no other electrical parts in it .Just gas valve /Thermostat /pump .( I have new spares for all 3 ) its as they say inefficient but we have 10 rads and the whole house is warm with boiler on low .Every time I have it serviced the fitters say ,hang on to it they don't make them like that any more ,lol.
The daughter has had 2 new type boilers in last 15 years.

You are covered with comprehensive insurance providing you don't do anything silly.

Interesting suggestion. I've never heard of that before.

According to BBC the UK is starting to run out of gas! Sorry, can't post links yet nor can I use then in a quote posted by you!

Not so many years back an autobahn that we were on in France went into lock down. Closed about 7pm, reopened 5-30 am, stuck in the car all night. Luckily we had a full tank, food & a flask of coffee...........snow & black ice was the cause. All exits off the autobahn were blocked by police, they didn't want all the wagons hitting the towns and blocking the roads therein.

That was one hell of a standstill for us.
