I chose Phoenix because of the sunny weather! It is a big difference from the Midwest.
Yah, seriously. In Phoenix, everyone but you is grateful, even elated, over a cloudy day. I doubt that is true anywhere in the midwest.(Just one though, maybe two. After that it is horribly depressing. That is what it is like in the midwest for most of the winter - a gray, gloomy sky day after day after day with very few hours of daylight. No thanks.)

That's the way I see and feel it as well. There are streaks a week+ of overcast and it happens all too often. Thereany 4+ days of clouds. I start to get upset (not depressed but downright p_issed off) as I moan and complain. As you say, no thanks.

That or a heavy monsoon storm! Sun is overrated and clouds are underrated is what I have decided after a few years here. I miss the marine layer LOL.

I don't mind the clouds at all.
Better for lawn bowling or yard chores.
A nice rain is always welcome. Even if it comes with lotza wind.
Batten down the hatches ! ! !

Best things about weather: weather, variety, change, life.
