: i'm from derbyshire in the uk and for years have heard the phrase "it's black over our bill's mothers" referring to the dark clouds on the horizon.

: however, no-one can tell me where this phrase comes from, please help!!

Nice to get a local query. This has come up before - try searching for:

bill mother

in the search box.
