To a small degree, it depends on how long you anticipated the outage to
be. Were you expecting a three-hour tour^h^h^h^houtage, or something
shorter but opened a big window to give you flexibility on when to do
it? I would say that a fifteen-minute expected impact means the outage
started at 2:15AM (or fifteen minutes after your work interrupted services).
