Yes, they're reported separately.

Total precipitation for the month was 19.6 mm liquid equivalent.

The 0.2 mm of rain was reported supposedly means liquid raindrops falling from the sky. However, as I said, I seriously doubt that ever happened because the temperature never rose above -25.7C on the day in question.
