Only a seasoned professional could get wiped out by a wall of snow sent up by a plow and not miss a beat in his news report.
Philadelphia WTXF-TV reporter Steve Keeley was in Woodstown, N.J., talking about the latest snowstorm socking the East Coast and how even after the roads were plowed, there was nothing to stop it from drifting back onto rural roads.
A few seconds later, a quartet of snowplows came barreling down the road behind Keeley. The first passed without incident, the second got a little too close for comfort and the third…well, just look.
Though he was slammed by the snow, Keeley barely faltered in his speech. His crew, however, was a bit more alarmed and screamed.
Watch the moment:
"That is the beauty of breaking news," Keeley said.
Sunday's late-night weather into Monday morning is the latest frigid blow of the harsh winter. As much as 10 inches of snow was expected in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore by the end of the day and up to 6 inches of snow was predicted north into Philadelphia with up to a foot expected in parts of New Jersey.
More than 2,000 flights along the East Coast were canceled as a result of the storm Monday.
