now i gtg take the bus to school, it leaves in 5 minutes.
I think your main problem is the weather and location. If you can't see what you're doing or feel your own fingers, that presents a problem.
Getting the hose back onto the throttle body might be more difficult than getting the MAF sensor end hose in. Go back one step, attach the hose to the throttle body assembly, you can always loosen the air intake housing too. That way you can adjust the angle better. In the last step, put the air intake housing back in place and bolt it down.
