Did you see the pics and video of people stranded on Alabama roads, in schools and in stores for eight hours or more this week after a two-inch snowfall?

Country singer Sara Evans—who lives in Birmingham with her hubby and their kids—is angry schools were even open.

“My complaint is we should have never gone to school,” Sara tells ABC News Radio.

“We should have never gone to work. We all should have just stayed home,” she said. “I cannot imagine being trapped in my car that long.”

Alabama just isn’t prepared for snow, she said: “There’s nothing in Birmingham. We don’t have that equipment, and so of course we're going to slide all over the place.”

Sara, who was in Nashville at the time, said her son was able to get home from junior high. But her stepkids were at school until 6 p.m., “which was horrible, but not nearly as bad as some,” she added.
