Shane Jiraiya Cummings' "Dread Seasons Quartet: Pallid Wisps Of Snow (Winter)" (flash fiction, non-genre, free)

A woman feeling rejected by her man because she's "Getting old! Not as beautiful!" is taking an angry walk through Arctic snow when she gets mummified in snow.

If the mummification was based on an Arctic phenomenon, it escaped me; someone familiar with those places might be a better judge. To me it sounded like magic; one moment she was whole; next moment she was mummified.

Fact sheet.
