PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Philadelphia television news reporter covering the aftermath of a snowstorm in New Jersey has gotten pelted by snow from a passing plow.

WTXF-TV's Steve Keeley was blasted with a wall of snow from the plow Monday morning while reporting live from the side of a road in Woodstown.

The station posted a video ( http://bit.ly/1krv3ki ) showing Keeley never lost his footing. It says it's the 15th storm Keeley has reported on this winter and he's clearly a pro because he "didn't even miss a beat."

Keeley says he was 20 feet from the road, which shows how far plows can throw snow at high speeds. He jokes a reporter from another TV station must've been driving the plow.
