OH MAN. You can try and drive on it. The steering should lighten up as you start rolling but will still be hard. You can try to add more power steering fluid and hope it holds up until you can get home. If anything maybe the last time someone checked your fluids they forgot to tighten up the cap on your power steering and caused it to leak out. Either way try and get some fluid and fill it as you go. Or unfortunately you'll have to tow it. Best of luck my friend. Wish I could do more.

Damn yea ^he's right. You can try and drive it. If you decide to just make sure you pick up a couple extra things of fluid so you can have it just in case later. And becareful than get it fixed/checked out asap. Sorry and good luck

sorry to hear chief. thats not ideal at all-

on a brighter side, i used to drive a renault encore stick shift (backwoods-no plate-ditch car) and it had no power steering...needless to say my arms were jack-diesel by the time i let it drive off a cliff upstate.
