Electrical Offenses

I removed the aluminum and asbestos cement shingles from the skirt below the circuit breaker today. Let's take a look at the visible issues, shall we?

We have exposed old wiring. Per the inspectors, it was deemed to be defunct, but definitely something I'll have an electrician remove

We have an extension cord threaded behind the electrical meter and, more seriously, PVC pipe used as electrical conduit that runs underground. This is a big no-no. PVC is conductive...
Time to call an electrician.
