Hey there..long time lurker first time poster Edit - ugg who cant spell

I'm sorta moving west to east...started in Seattle,Wa (though I lived in Hawaii for a bit) and I'm in Tulsa,Ok now. Tulsa is a great city - low cost of living, good food, crazy weather, no traffic and the river is beautiful...but the pollution here is scaring me east..recently we had 2 "clear sky" days where there was fog..but it wasnt fog it was "ozone" and all the freeway signs were blinking "keep your young and eldery indoors"...heh anyways I'm looking east..thinking of driving out to jacksonville or wilmington...or any city/town within a hour or so drives of Raleigh so I can catch a 'canes game if I want too..

First question! I absolutely love the lightening storms we get here in Tulsa. April May and June had a window-shaking crap I'm in bahgdad storm every week..now I dont like grey drizzly rain...thats why I left seattle...Do the coastal areas of NC get fantastic storms or is it just the biyearly hurricanes ?

Second Question! I eat out virtually every meal. I like quality sushi and dim sum style chinese..I usually pay $20-40 a meal. Is there good asian food about jacksonville or willmington or the smaller coastal towns...I dont mind driving 30-40 minutes...

Wilmington rains pretty hard. I haven't noticed any earth-shattering lightning. It may be like the intensity of Oklahoma, I don't know much about that. We get brief afternoon showers almost daily during the summer.

Wilmington has a decent variety of asian food. You've got your typical greasy Chinese food joints, but there are several sushi bars. There's a good thai restaurant downtown called Rim Wang.
I went to this place:
Indochine A Far East Cafe
the other day, and it was good.

I'm still investigating the asian restaraunts around here, so I can't be much use there, but...
Last week or the week before, we had a thunderstorm here and I thought the lightning was pretty amazing.
