Let's say I have a meeting at 13:00. I go to lunch an hour before the
meeting and make this statement in an email. When I get back from
lunch, I find out that the meeting has been rescheduled to 16:00. Does
that mean I went out to lunch at 15:00? No.

The action that was scheduled for 3 minutes before the end of nday 8
occurred at the time that condition was true. Changing the end of the
nday after the action has happened doesn't all of a sudden undo that
