comment How can I safely work around power lines?
@wallyk In your area they have fuses. Remember this is an international site, so your advice reaches far beyond your city. I have no idea how much experience you actually have, but I would expect somebody with decades of experience to have a bit more respect for safety.

Decades of DIY electrical work, does not equal decades of electrical experience. Doing it wrong for a decade, does not mean you know how to do it right.

The service conductors are potentially unfused, which means there may be nothing to stop the flow of electricity. Inside your home a breaker/fuse (or GFCI) could trip and save your life. Outside the home, you could potentially be fried until the transformer blows. Make a phone call, and have the service disconnected.

comment Do the breaker amp readings sum up to dictate my current panels total / possible amperage?
@JimmyHoffa Just because the panel is rated for 125A, does not mean the service is. Check with your utility to determine the service capacity. Though, repurposing the 30A circuit should work.

comment Can I temporarily connect a dishwasher with hoses running along the floor?
Why not just get the dishwasher, and store it until you can install it properly.

Water gets mad when you try to make it go up hill, and usually throws a temper tantrum all over the floor.

comment What is best practice for tying in grounds on a metal box?
As for 250.148(B), that means removing a device (receptacle, luminaire, etc.) cannot cause the box (and anything else downstream) to not be grounded.

The equipment the code is talking about is ground screws and ground clips.
