comment What prevents mortar from being compressed with the weight of courses of brick?
I'd love to see an answer that contains a good animation, or series of images that shows how the grains of sand in the mortar interact. A brief discussion of Non-Newtonian fluids, might also be interesting. Alas, the answer is more likely to be "Hey! How exactly is a rainbow made? How exactly does a sun set? How exactly does a posi-trac rear-end on a Plymouth work? It just does."

comment Can tile be removed and placed again before it sets?
Once the tile is laid, it becomes more and more difficult to remove as time passes. It will be difficult to reuse the tile, even if it has only been down for a minute or two. You'll likely have to remove the mortar from both the tile and the substrate, and then start again. This becomes increasingly difficult (especially if you're looking to reuse the tile) as the mortar hardens.

There must be structure above the panels, right? Sounds like you just need longer screws, and to know where the rafters are.

Are there any type of remote, or other special controls involved (dimmers, timers, anything with sensitive electronics, etc)? What caused the power outage?

@JulieinAustin The NEC seems fairly clear about this, see 300.3(B).
