Not yet. And although it is used to measure direction (and something else), it isn't direction in the way you might think.

Nothing to do with weather, stars, or length.

I'll be back in a few hours. Just got up long enough to see James off to school and check in here.

Buckytom's weather answer is the closest so far, but not it.

HUGE clue: Something to do with the planet we live on. Well, most of us!
