It sounds like your block heater may not be working. My car never cranks that long when plugged in, and it started up right away in -19 weather (sorry baby). It does take 5 to 10 minutes for the coolant to heat up.
If you pop your engine cover off you could see/feel if it is still plugged into the block.
