Coolant Leak, Not Oil Cooler/EGR/HG

So I'm driving home, and come to a stop light a block away and smell coolant than see steam coming from the hood. I looked down at my gauges immediately and oil and coolant were both 200*. I eased the truck home and there was no coolant left in the degas. Just checked coolant levels a week ago all good. To my surprise no coolant at all on degas, however that was the only dry section of the truck. It looks as the coolant hit the fan literally and sprayed everywhere. Near the passenger side battery and lower to middle area is where most of the coolant is. What are your thoughts? Hose? Radiator? Water Pump? Too dark now to truly look for hose leaks but nothing visual from the top or from underneath that I could see.

Thanks in advanced.

When its light out, check the waterpump and the big fat o-ring between the front cover and the intake manifold right above it. There is also a steel line on the passenger side that feeds the heater core. That connects to the front cover and has an o-ring on that as well.

That aluminum cover on the front of the engine that houses the waterpump.
