Sounds like the high pressure line parted ,, but you should have smelled freon big time ... I know this may sound dumb but did you turn the AC back on with the hood open? No doubt if all the freon is gone the clutch won't engage but you said that you didn't smell freon .. The water was no doubt condensate
