Did you cross any water that went over your wheels?

well, it could be slipping because of the lack of fluid. if it were me, I'd clean the bottom off as well as I could. fill the tranny up again, put it up on Jack stands, then put it in gear and let it free roll for a bit while I looked for the leak. be sure to check cooler hoses, pan gasket, Bell housing, etc. once you see the drip, shut it down and act accordingly.
