After driving in a snow storm I realized that my PS locked up, only to find that it was completely out of fluid.
Went and purchased more to fill and it drained over night.
mess curious to see if anyone knows where this point connects? Or what my next move should be. 89FC361C-BED7-4D18-84F7-4FE0D6665651.jpeg

There is obviously a leak somewhere; the question is where? When the racks go out; they tend to leak out the seals where the ribbed boots are cover the tie rod ends. Jacking up the car or putting it on a lift; probably, would help see where the source of the leak is and if you really can't find it, adding some leaking detection dye, might help make it more visible.

here are some service manual links; that might help you understand the reservoir, hoses and steering rack locations, how things are setup:





Let us know, what your inspection reveals and where the source of the leak is, we can go form there. Thanks.
