Black over Will's Mother

Posted by John E Farrow on July 13, 2007

Re previous discussions on "Black over Will's Mother" used when referring to dark clouds and impending storms. My wife recently made this comment to a local checkout lady who promptly trotted out a second phrase. However on getting home my wife had forgotten what this phrase was and the next time she asked the checkout lady, she had also forgotten it !!!

Can anyone recall a follow-up phrase ?
