Yes it is.  Make sure your output lines in your snort.conf file look like this:

output database: log, mysql, dbname=snort user=xxxxx host=
port=3306 sensor_name= detail=full encoding=ascii
output alert_full: /var/log/snort/alert
output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT

This should get you all the logging you could ever want.  ;)
