probably not - because I'm being punished for not starting my Christmas shopping yet.
Any ideas? Car has 122k mi and didn't have any problems prior like this except that I thought I smelled burning oil the last two days...

Is the oil from the engine or the tranny? If it was still running okay without making horrible noises, I'd suspect you blew a tranny cooler line and lost the fluid in the torque converter, rather than loosing the engine oil.

By the way, is that line hard / expensive to replace? I don't have my haynes on me.

I think you got the $12 blown hose you'd hoped for. Then again, it could be two broken CV axles and a cracked engine block...

prefering the cheap hose over the cracked eng block solution,

Go to Auto Zone and buy 6 ft. of oil cooler hose for 90 cents a foot. Then cut to length using the old hoses for guidance. Replace both lines. Buy a handful of hose clamps while at Auto Zone and replace them. Trying to reuse the old Suby OEM clamps is a real headache.
Finally lube the hose ends with a few drops of ATF so they slip on easy.

You may want to inspect the other lines as well.
