The native Utahns I work with say tomorrow but people not from here (myself included) say it's a week from tomorrow. Wondering if this is a regional thing.

a week from tomorrow obviously
tomorrow would just be 'saturday' or even more unambiguously 'saturday'

The proximity makes it the next week. If it was Monday and you said "next Saturday", it would be the next Saturday, the Saturday of the same week. I just always say "Not this Saturday, the next one."

13 out of 13 answers agree in a week.
I kind of thought that was a Utah thing.

A week from tomorrow.

So, what did you do last Saturday?

So, how do the Utah people actually refer to the Saturday of the next week, then?

This past Saturday or the week before, womersley?

A week from Saturday, mouse. I think. I'm not really disappointed if i don't catch on to all they do.

Any Saturday. Just pick one and tell me what you did.

I would assume 'next Saturday' would be the one a week tomorrow and the other one would be 'tomorrow' or 'this Saturday'.
