Traduzione dal siciliano


I was reading Giovanni Verga's Cavalleria rusticana and there is a sentence in Sicilian that I couldn't understand. Ora addio, gnà Lola, facemu cuntu ca chioppi e scampau, e la nostra amicizia finiu.
What does "facemu cuntu ca chioppi e scampau" mean?

Also, what is "racinedda"? From the context, I'm guessing it's a term of endearment, but I would like to know the exact meaning.

    Il significato dovrebbe essere più o meno: facciamo conto (ma anche: comportiamoci) come se ci sia stato il temporale e poi sia passato

    racinedda dovrebbe essere l'uva
