So a little more digging lead me to think it was the local backups so I ran
sudo tmutil disablelocal
which removed the MobileBackups folder. Popped open "About this mac" to look at the storage section" and...
It's still showing only 90 gbs free (with my Finder window showing 209).
And here's the REALLY crazy part, the portion that used to be taken up by "mobile backups" is now filled be the "other" block.
Now I'm completely confused.

There's usually no need to disable local snapshots. They're deleted automatically when storage space is low. When you delete files, they're retained temporarily in local snapshots. The space is marked as "available" by the Finder, and that's how you should regard it.
