Is Hell Hot or Cold?

Usually I always thought that Hell was hot, flames and all that. However, during the last few years, I have wondered if it is cold without any warmth at all. Usually when you think of something pleasant you desribe it as warming your heart, not freezing it. C.S. Lewis portrayed a Hellish Narnia as forever Winter without Christmas. Or is it a little bit of both? Kind of like when you feel something extremely hot at first it almost feels like it is extremely cold. Only later do you feel the burn. Do you think that Hell is hot or cold? Is it a personal point of view?

You ask a good question. I think it might be a personal point of view more than anything. I think it's portrayed as being hot and flames and such to scare you. If you THINK about it though, it's mentioned that it's pitch black, yet if there's flames, it wouldn't be black at all, in fact, it would be light. It doesn't make sense. I think hell is neither cold or hot, I just think there's different dimensions and different plains.
